Match report

Two tries apiece from Amy Hardcastle and Tara-Jane Stanley set England on their way as they scored 11 tries in a ruthless victory over Wales at Headingley.

Centre Hardcastle opened England's account with two tries before further scores from Shona Hoyle and Caitlin Beevers seemingly put England out of sight at the half-time break.

Although tested by Wales at times during the first 40 minutes, Stuart Barrow's side showed no mercy in the second period, rushing over the whitewash seven more times courtesy of full-back Stanley's double alongside contributions from Lacey Owen, Georgia Roche, Tamzin Renouf, Keara Bennett and Emily Rudge.

"We had some fix-ups to do at half-time, but the girls responded really well to what we told them and we came out and looked more like we wanted to look from the start," England Head Coach Stuart Barrow said.

"I thought Wales really brought it to us in the first half and really challenged up, but our scramble defence showed our commitment to each other."

Hardcastle put England in front in the eighth minute, with Stanley kicking the first of seven successful conversions, and the Leeds Rhinos player had her second in the 17th minute as she was set up by Georgia Roche following a scrum.

Prop Hoyle went over under the posts after taking an offload from England captain Jodie Cunningham seven minutes later, but Molyneux's sin-binning for a high tackle in the 32nd minute saw Wales exert some pressure on England's line.
