Italy Women 0-54 England Women, Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi

England Women rounded off a perfect Six Nations tournament as they thrashed Italy Women 54-0 at Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi to clinch the Grand Slam.

The red rose had already won the tournament at the completion of four round with being the only team to remain unbeaten but the way they dominated their Italy counterparts last weekend proved their dominance.

Ellie Kildunne started the proceedings with a third minute try that Emily Scarratt converted and they doubled their tally in the 16th minute when Poppy Cleall powered her way over the line at the end of the first quarter for her fifth try in the tournament.

There was no respite whatsoever for the home side with Scarratt's converted try taking their tally to 21 points with Abbie Ward's touchdown before the break helped the visitors claim the bonus point heading into the second half with a 0-28 lead.

It took England 18 minutes in the second half to extend their lead further after a crosskick from Daley-Mclean was collected by Manuela Furlan as she sent Sarah Bern over the line while Jess Breach, Leanne Riley and Marlie Packer added further tries in the final 12 minutes to take England to a 54 point dominating victory.

The remaining two matches of the round involving France-Ireland along with Wales-Scotland were postponed following positive coronavirus test results.
