    England proved just too strong for France, as they won 38-33 to complete a Women’s Six Nations Grand Slam in front of a record crowd at Twickenham on Saturday, April 29.

    The Red Roses dominated the opening 40 minutes, leading 33-0 at the break after scoring four tries and a penalty try, with France down to 13 players following two yellow cards.

    France, also bidding for a Grand Slam, hit back after the break with 33 points of their own in a second half where Lark Davies’s try was England’s only score.

    A crowd of 58,498 was a new record for a stand-alone women’s international, topping the 42,579 attendance for England’s 34-31 World Cup final loss to New Zealand in Auckland in November.
