England international records tumble at Esher

  • Worst defeat suffered by any England Women's XV at home - ever
  • Worst defeat by any England Women's XV this century
  • Second worst defeat suffered by any England Women's XV ever
New Zealand did not beat England A last night - they destroyed them. England A 3, New Zealand 48... if you can bear to watch you'll find an X-rated three minutes or so here.

Okay, not England's 1st XV, nor really New Zealand's second team (the touring party is only 26 or so strong, so a fair few players from Saturday played again) - but an indication of the scary depth of talent that the Black Ferns have. After all, the England team were hardly novices - there were a fair few players out there with 1st XV experience, and as a team England A would be a match for most 1st XVs from the rest of the world (probably only behind the likes of Wales, Canada, France and maybe Ireland and the USA).

The second test between the Black Ferns and England is on Saturday - live on Sky. If the visitors play like this again you may need to watch from behind the sofa!

    I would have thought the result against the england A side showed the distance England 1st XV and the Black Ferns are in front of the rest of the world.
