So it's England who come out on top in that floral battle.
The Roses now join defending world champions Australia and New Zealand in winning two from two.
They have also booked their place in the next round.
The Thistles showed plenty of promise and patches of fluid play, but ultimately they didn't quite have the extra gear needed to contend with England.
The evening session continues here in Liverpool with two more matches still to be played but we'll be back Sunday morning as the Roses take on Samoa at 11:00 BST.
Thanks for joining us this afternoon.
