  1. England are nearly there

    FT: England 66-7 Wales

    It's job done for leaders England, who are eight points clear of France in second.

    The French will have to claim two bonus-point wins from their final two games to draw level with England.

    The Red Roses' final game with Italy is postponed due to coronavirus, but they will be favourites to seal the title and the Grand Slam if the fixture is rearranged.

    Right I'm off for a lie down before the men take centre stage over the road at HQ.

    You can join me on the live text for that one here.

  2. 'We've got to stick with it'

    FT: England 66-7 Wales

    Wales skipper Siwan Lillicrap: "We have got to look at the positives, and take some of the positive stuff out of what we displayed today. England are an outstanding side and they showed that today but definitely there was some really good stuff from us as well.

    "England away is always a tough task. We did pressure them at times. We're at the beginning of a building stage, we've got lots of youngsters in the squad and we've got to stick with it, keep developing, keep learning. We want to play the best sides in the world and we'll learn more from that than anything else."

  3. 'We wanted to put on a show'

    FT: England 66-7 Wales

    England captain Emily Scarratt: "It's awesome playing here in front of this many people. We love playing in front of crowds like this.

    "It's the last game of the Six Nations for us at the moment, so we wanted to put on a show, and rectify a few things we were frustrated with after the Ireland game. We set ourselves really high standards, and when you fall short of those it's frustrating. We got back on the horse as it were, and the scoreboard probably speaks for itself. Some fantastic tries right across the board.

    On Katy Daley-McLean:"She's awesome, she's like a fine wine isn't she, getting better with age! Constantly putting people in the right areas of the field, keeps the forwards going forward. I'm glad she's on my team!"

  4. 'A fantastic occasion'

    FT: England 66-7 Wales

    Player of the match Poppy Cleall: "I thoroughly enjoyed it, we love playing here at the Stoop. To come down to a record crowd, it's a fantastic occasion.

    "[Simon Middleton] is a bit of a stickler, so I'm sure there's quite a lot we need to work on. There's some areas we need to improve on, so we need to go back and have a look at that.

    On the postponement of the match against Italy: "We're rugby players, we turn up when we're told and prepare because that's what our job is. At the moment, we'll enjoy this win, and hopefully go over to Twickenham to watch the men do the same."

  6. 'England will be pleased'

    FT: England 66-7 Wales

    Catherine Spencer

    Former England captain on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    I think England will be pretty pleased with that. They won't be as pleased with the first half but the second half was fantastic. Everyone played well in that half.

    It's a tough one for Wales. They were struggling to make ground. They've got a lot of work to do, they're going to have to really look at their structures and what they're doing. It's an uphill battle.

  7. Full-time - England 66-7 Wales

    It's all over and England have claimed their fourth win of the championship.

    The unbeaten defending champions run in 10 tries in a thumping victory to win the Triple Crown and all-but seal another title.

  8. 'Lovely footwork'

    England 66-7 Wales

    Catherine Spencer

    Former England captain on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    There were a few Welsh players to negotiate, but it's lovely footwork by Sarah McKenna again, and Emily Scarratt in the build-up. Simon Middleton is looking a lot happier this week than he was at this stage of the game against Ireland.

  9. Try - England 66-7 Wales

    Sarah McKenna

    This time Sarah McKenna does get her try.

    England's performance has been all about powerful running from their forwards but winger McKenna straightens her line to score her side's 10th try with a great finish.

    Emily Scarratt misses only her second conversion.

  10. 'McKenna's had a really bright game'

    England 61-7 Wales

    Catherine Spencer

    Former England captain on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    Hannah Jones does a really good job of holding the ball up against Sarah McKenna. McKenna's another player who's had a really bright game today. She's really enjoying herself and has such lovely footwork.

  11. Post update

    England 61-7 Wales

    Sarah McKenna gets over the line but she is held up over the line.

    Credit to the Welsh defence who have continued to show real grit despite being on the receiving end of a heavy defeat.

  12. Post update

    England 61-7 Wales

    Natasha Hunt is back on for the final five minutes as her sin bin comes to an end.

  13. Post update

    England 61-7 Wales

    The television camera moves onto Poppy Cleall and the crowd begin to cheer as she is announced as the Player of the Match.

    Was it ever in doubt?

    The second-row's hat-trick was just the gloss on a powerful display all round.

  14. 'A lovely pick from Hunter'

    England 61-7 Wales

    Catherine Spencer

    Former England captain on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    It was a really lovely pick from the base of the scrum from Sarah Hunter. I watch tries like this and it makes me question why teams don't use the eight pick more often, it creates such a good platform.

  15. Converted try - England 61-7 Wales

    Hannah Botterman (con Emily Scarratt)

    You don't stop Hannah Botterman from there!

    Sarah Hunter picks up from the base of the scrum and takes three red shirts with her. The ball is recycled and Botterman powers over from close range.

    It's simple rugby against a tiring Welsh outfit.

    Emily Scarratt kicks the conversion.

  16. Post update

    England 54-7 Wales

    As we tick towards the final 10 minutes, it's time to bring you the official attendance.

    There are 10,974 supporters at the Stoop. Great to see.

  17. 'Energy and intensity is phenomenal'

    England 54-7 Wales

    Catherine Spencer

    Former England captain on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    The energy and the intensity all over this pitch, wherever they are, when they're already forty-odd points up, is phenomenal. They're not taking their foot off the gas - if anything they're pushing the accelerator even harder.

  18. Converted try - England 54-7 Wales

    Zoe Aldcroft (con Emily Scarratt)

    England's 14 players hit back straight away and they rack up the half century.

    They roll through the phases with precision and second row Zoe Aldcroft powers over from close range.

    Emily Scarratt makes no mistake from the tee. She's only missed one conversion so far.

  19. 'A tough moment for Venner'

    England 47-7 Wales

    Catherine Spencer

    Former England captain on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    A bit of a tough moment for Mia Venner there. Natasha Hunt worked hard to save the situation, but it was the right decision from the referee to award the penalty try.

  20. Sin-bin

    England 47-7 Wales

    Natasha Hunt goes into the bin for her tackle off the ball.
