England raced out of the blocks and lead after just a couple of minutes when prop Vickii Cornborough rumbled over from close range and that was soon followed by Abby Dow's brilliant solo try, running from her own half, beating a number of USA defenders.

12 minutes had passed before England had their third as Worcester's Lydia Thomson celebrated her 50th cap with a try in the corner.

USA battled back well thereafter, camping themselves in the England half and frustrating the hosts, without managing to capitalise.

England then responded to that period of pressure from the visitors and heading into the final ten minutes they scored again as Lark Davies touched down following a effective rolling maul from a 5-metre lineout.

There was time for one more before the break as scrum-half Leanne Infante darted over and with that, the half-time scores read 29-0 to England.
