ALDERHOLT'S Poppy Cleall collected her 20th England cap as she helped the Red Roses to a 43-8 victory over Scotland in the Six Nations.

In a game played at Scotstoun Stadium in Glasgow, England scored seven tries and crossed inside three minutes when Danielle Waterman, took the ball off Lauren Cattell after the centre's break and stepped the covering defender to dot down under the posts.

Prop Sarah Bern hit a superb line for England's second before Scotland rallied through Sarah Law's penalty and Jade Konkel's try to bring the scores to within six points.

However, Charlotte Pearce's first international try put England back in control and the bonus-point was secured when Ellie Kildunne scored following a deep break for a 26-8 half-tine lead.

England continued their pressure in the second half and Pearce showed superb strength and composure to cross for her second.

Lagi Tuima also got her first try for her country as she broke through the midfield to run in.

Waterman's second came from a well worked move off the back of a scrum and she nearly got her hat-trick in the final moments but her effort was ruled out after her foot was just in touch.

The Red Roses next face France on 10 March (8pm) in Grenoble in the title decider and then finish their campaign as they entertain Ireland at the Ricoh Arena on Friday March 16 (5.30pm).
