England’s final push


ENGLAND booked their place in the Six Nations final as a flurry of late scores gave them a 67-3 victory over Italy.

Emily Scarratt and Vicky Fleetwood seized on Italian mistakes for the Red Roses’ only first-half tries.

England improved after the break with Abby Dow crossing twice in Parma.

Scarratt ended with a 24-point haul and England captain Sarah Hunter said: “Some of the tries we scored were outstandin­g.”

England will not learn their opponents for the final on April 24 until Ireland face France next Saturday.
