Bern scores as Red Roses secure Grand Slam

Sarah Bern crossed the whitewash in England Women’s emphatic 80-0 victory over Scotland Women at Twickenham to secure the Six Nations Grand Slam title.

Having already won their first four games with bonus points, England ran in 12 tries in front of a record crowd for a women's game at Twickenham of 13,278 to secure the title that France won last year.

It took just over two minutes for England to score as Poppy Cleall broke the line and fed Sarah Beckett for the flanker to cross under the sticks.

Jess Breach gathered a cross-field kick from fly-half Katy Daley-McLean as she continued her run of scoring in every game of the 2019 Women's Six Nations.

Natasha Hunt darted through from a quick tap penalty before Breach got onto Scarratt's kick forward for her second and England's bonus-point.

The first half scoring continued as Cleall drove over following some impressive forward work, and it was the pack's work from driving maul from a lineout where Amy Cokayne dropped over the line off the back for a 45-0 lead at the break.

Sarah Bern continued her scoring form in this season’s competition with a powerful drive off the back of a ruck to score England's first try of the second half with captain Sarah Hunter scoring in similar circumstances a few minutes later. Further tries from Scarratt, Cleall and Cath O'Donnell sealed the deal for the Red Roses.
