England women ease past France in Perpignan

Jodie Cunningham England women

Captain Emily Rudge scored a try in each half as England extended their unbeaten record against France with a 40-4 victory in the women’s Test in Perpignan.

After a scrappy opening, the visitors seized control of the contest with three tries in the last 15 minutes of the first half through centre Amy Hardcastle, substitute Paige Travis and second-rower Rudge.

Stand-off Jodie Cunningham took a return pass from Rudge within a minute of the restart to extend the lead and, as the French began to tire, Rudge claimed her second try and hooker Tara Jones and winger Caitlin Beevers also crossed.
