Kelsey Jones scored a consolation try for Wales in the second-half but the Red Roses cruised to another bonus-point win.

England’s victory took place in front of a record attendance for an England ticketed home game of 14,689 — the previous record was set at the Twickenham Stoop for the 2010 World Cup final.

The Red Roses secured their 21st consecutive win and look on course to lift the Six Nations title for the fourth time in a row.

England face Ireland on April 24 while Wales host France on the same weekend in this year’s tournament.
