WALES Women went down to a 52-0 defeat to England in their Six Nations clash at Twickenham Stoop.

Poppy Cleall and Ellie Kildunne each scored twice for the home side while Abigail Dow, Leanne Riley, Marlie Packer and Rachael Burford also scored.

The visitors spread the ball wide to dangerous RGC winger Jess Kavanagh-Williams early on, but Rowland Phillips' side were then dealt a blow as Kerin Lake was replaced by Hannah Jones.

Centre Lake took a blow to the arm and was unable to continue and from there, England took control with Cleall the first of the home try scorers. Katy Daley-McLean added the extras.

Amy Evans escaped a yellow card for a deliberate knock-on, but Dow then added the home side's second. The conversion was added and scrum-half Riley then made it three scores for England as they moved into a 21-0 lead.

Kildunne secured the bonus-point try within half an hour, Daley-McLean surprisingly missing the conversion for the first time in the afternoon.

Wilkins made way for Lleucu George as Wales searched for a way back into the game after the interval, but England's power game told once again when Packer emerged from a huge forward surge for the first try after the break. Daley-McLean was once again perfect with the extras.

Inside centre Burford then dotted down under the posts, Daley-McLean converting to increase their advantage to 40.

There was still time for Cleall and Kildunne to add their second tries of the game, Daley-McLean converting the second of those to complete the rout.
