Breach adds to Red Roses try tally

Jess Breach was on the scoresheet when England made it two wins from two in the 2020 Women’s Six Nations as they beat Scotland 53-0 at Murrayfield.

 

Flying winger Breach, from Chichester, latched on to an Emily Scarratt looping miss pass to race in for her 21st try in 12 Tests.

 

England secured a bonus-point win with eight tries in freezing conditions in Scotland.

 

The rest came from Sarah Bern, Abby Dow (two), Emily Scott (two), Sarah Hunter and Claudia McDonald.

 

Scarratt kicked five conversions and a penalty.

 

Scarratt’s 13-point haul meant she overtook team-mate Katy Daley-McLean as England Women’s all-time leading scorer.

 

The game took place on Monday after it was postponed on Sunday due to safety fears because of Storm Ciara.

 

Chichester return to London One South action tomorrow when they travel to Cobham (2.30pm KO).

 

The first team had a blank weekend last Saturday in the league.

 

Cobham will represent another tough test on the road for Chichester, who have struggled for wins away from Oaklands Park.

 

Cobham sit fifth in the table and 13 points above the visitors, who have now established themselves in the top eight with a seven-point gap between their closest rivals below them.

 

Bognor, who were also without a game last Saturday, are at home in Hampshire Premier leaders when ninth-placed Alresford visit.

 

Alresford lost last weekend to Alton.
