England women thrash sorry Italy
Danielle Waterman
Waterman justified her selection with two tries
England ran in 12 tries on their way to a crushing 76-6 victory against Italy in the Women's Six Nations in Rome.

Saracens full-back Charlotte Barras, Clifton wing Danielle Waterman and Worcester wing Katherine Merchant all claimed braces of tries in Rome.

Rochelle Clark, Maggie Alphonsi, Michaela Staniford, Jane Leonard and Jo McGilchrist also went over.

Alice Richardson and Katy McLean, kicked eight conversions and 16 points for England's second successive win.

England head coach Gary Street said: "This is a really pleasing performance that saw several flashes of excellent play.

"What was especially pleasing was the continuity of play which kept the ball alive and enabled us to score so many tries.

"Again, we made some errors which we must improve on but after a closely fought game against the Italian a year ago I am really pleased with this result."
