But a great team try eased the pressure on England with winger Lydia Thompson touching down after receiving the ball from Danielle Waterman.

Against Spain Kay Wilson was the tormentor-in-chief, contributing four tries and duly earning herself the weekend off - Amy Wilson-Hardy coming in on the left wing and twice going close in the early stages.

England have used their driving maul sparingly so far but it proved effective in setting up Lydia Thompson's score before half-time and Amy Cokayne was on hand to score a fourth before the half-time interval after an eye-catching run from the impressive flanker Marlie Packer. Scarratt, restored to the starting line-up, struck first however, going over in the right-hand corner after a cleverly delayed pass from Izzy Noel-Smith.

A few minutes later, Alex Matthews touched down under the posts to leave Scaratt with an easy conversion to make it 12-0.

Two tries in three minutes soon after the restart from second row Tamara Taylor and Scarratt put England in control at 34-8 and Italy briefly rallied for their second try through forward Elisa Giordano.

England notched their second straight 10-try win in defence of their World Cup title by over-powering Pool A rivals Italy 56-13.
