England reclaimed top spot in the TikTok Women’s Six Nations following a 69-0 win over Ireland.

A record crowd of 15,836 at Mattioli Woods Welford Road in Leicester were given 11 tries as exhausted Ireland were overwhelmed.

England, who gave Emily Scarratt a guard of honor as she took to the pitch for her 100th cap, scored the first try in two minutes by knocking down Lark Davies.

Abbie Ward scored a try for a forward pass but Sarah Bern found a gap to break Ireland’s resistance for the second after 16 minutes.

Ireland should have gone on the scoreboard midway through the first half, but Nicole Cronin sliced ​​a horribly wide penalty past the posts.

It had been a scrappy first half for the hosts but they started the second eager to make amends with Marlie Packer showing her pace to score from the opening minute.

Scarratt landed his first conversion and kicked his second after Davies once again shoved his way through.

Poppy Cleall came off the bench to advance to try number six and another rolling maul dispatched fellow substitute Hannah Botterman.

Cleall grabbed his second and Ellie Kildunne zigzagged before Ireland were reduced to 14 when Sene Naoupu saw red for a dangerous tackle.

Kildunne evaded two Irish defenders to knock the ball down one-handed for his second try and Thompson completed the scoring.
