WALES Women were beaten 66-7 by England Women in their Six Nations clash at Twickenham Stoop.

Chris Horsman's side were undone by a stunning hat-trick from Red Roses second row Poppy Cleall as her team scored 10 tries to stay on course for a Grand Slam.

Cleall's treble aside England's best try came from a superb effort by fly-half Katy Daley-McLean as Wales got on the scoreboard through a second half penalty try.

Amy Cokayne crossed on her 50th cap and Vicky Fleetwood, Harriet Millar-Mills, Zoe Aldcroft, Hannah Botterman and Sarah McKenna also touched down for England.

Wales skipper Siwan Lillicrap said: "We have got to look at the positives of what we displayed. England are an outstanding side and they showed that, but there was definitely some really good stuff from us as well. England away is always a tough task. We did pressure them at times.

"We're at the beginning of a building stage, we've got lots of youngsters in the squad, and we've got to stick with it, keep developing, and keep learning.

"We want to play the best sides in the world and we'll learn more from that than anything else."

The clash at Twickenham Stoop is the only one to take place this weekend after fixtures in Glasgow and Dublin were postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.

England's scheduled final match of the campaign in Italy has also been called off, casting doubt over when the tournament will reach a conclusion.
