England break Canada in dominant second-half display
England scored 31 second-half points without reply en route to a 51-12 victory over Canada at Twickenham Stoop.
England, who have now won 17 successive matches having already claimed back-to-back Autumn Series victories over New Zealand, drew first blood through Heather Cowell who crossed the whitewash on her debut four minutes into the encounter.
The visitors scored tries through Paige Farries and Sabrina Poulin either side of Sarah Bern’s superb effort for England but Cowell grabbed her second just before the break to make it 20-12 to the hosts at half-time.
It was all one-way traffic after the break, however, as England proved too strong for a nation ranked third in the world – two below the Red Roses.
Tries from Bern, Alex Matthews and a double from Claudia MacDonald ensured an impressive victory for Simon Middleton’s in-form hosts.
