World champions England crush Wales in Women's Six Nations

World champions England scored 11 tries as they crushed Wales in Cardiff to make it two successive Women's Six Nations wins this season.

Wales had no answer at the Arms Park in front of a 4,000-strong crowd as England's women followed up last weekend's Twickenham victory over France by blitzing their opponents 63-0.

Worcester wing Lydia Thompson led the way by scoring three tries, while Amy Wilson-Hardy and Danielle Waterman both crossed twice.

And the one-sided success was further underlined through touchdowns from Amy Cokayne, Natasha Hunt, Katy McLean and Sarah Hunter, with Emily Scarratt kicking four conversions.

England led 36-0 at half-time, and it was always damage-limitation for a Wales team outgunned in every key department.
