Tuima wonder try helps England to comfortable win

Lagi Tuima's stunning solo try helped England Women overcome Scotland 43-8 to maintain an unbeaten start to the Six Nations campaign.

The hugely talented centre beat several defenders on her way to the whitewash in a one-sided affair at Scotstoun.

Izzy Noel-Smith also started, while Amber Reed and Caity Mattinson featured from the replacements.

Danielle Waterman, Sarah Bern, Charlotte Pearce and Ellie Kildunne all crossed in the first half to bring up a bonus-point before the interval.

Scotland responded with a long-range penalty from Sarah Law and a try from number eight Jade Konkel.

But Pearce, Lagi Tuima and Waterman scored again as England stretched away.

Fly-half Katy Daley-Mclean added four conversions as England recorded a third win from three games, while Scotland suffered a third straight defeat.

A crowd of 3,278 - a record for a Scotland home game in the Women's Six Nations - watched a dogged performance from the hosts, but they were ultimately overpowered by the Red Roses.
