14-woman England beat Scots

England were too strong for a disjointed Scottish team playing in front of a full house, with their back three particularly deadly.

Both Ellie Kildunne and Jess Breach scored two tries each while England also had no problem playing a chunk of the second half with just fourteen players, when Amy Cokayne was sent off having received a second yellow card. 

Poor weather greeted the teams, but England handled the conditions very well, with some fine attacking play, with Cokayne grabbing the first try.

Holly Aitchison failed to convert that and the second that Abby Dow scored superbly in the corner on the 12-minute mark, but such was England's dominance that it hardly mattered.

Maud Muir had a try ruled out before Cokayne shown yellow for a dangerous clearout, but as the rain poured down, England continued to look comfortable and Kildunne raced over for another score after a brilliant football style kick back inside from Meg Jones.

Four minutes into the second half, England had their bonus point.

Scrumming five metres out from Scotland's try line, Mo Hunt had a snipe before Kabeya powered over, and then it was Breach's turn to finish off another excellent team try.

Breach and Kildunne piled on the pain for Scotland, before Marlie Packer came on to score off the bench.

England march on and will play Ireland at home next weekend,
