Aldcroft touched down in front of a record home ticketed Women’s Six Nations attendance of 10,974 at Twickenham Stoop.

England were dominant throughout the match as they ran in 10 tries and secured the Triple Crown.

Aldcroft capitalised on a loose ball from a ruck and powered over in the 65th minute of England’s dominant win, their fourth win from four in this year’s Six Nations.

“Zoe Aldcroft has been a sensation all tournament with an old head on young shoulders,” said coach Middleton.

“It was a great atmosphere and to have nearly 11,000 here was fantastic and then to put on a good performance which I think we did do.

“It was great we were able to get the crowd on their feet like we did.”

The Red Roses now await details of their postponed final fixture against Italy, knowing they are just one win away from sealing a successive Grand Slam title.
