  1. Goodbye!

    FT: Wales 12-51 England

    That's it from me - thanks for joining our coverage today.

    So England roll on with three wins from three.

    The Red Roses host Italy in Exeter in less than a fortnight, while Wales return to action in Glasgow against Scotland on Friday, 8 March.

    In the meantime, you can stay across the final Six Nations fixture of the third round from Rome here, as Italy take on defending champions Ireland in the men's tournament.

    England celebrate
  2. England move back to the top

    FT: Wales 12-51 England

    That result in Cardiff sees England move back to the top of the table with maximum points, while Wales remain in fifth.

  3. 'England a step above the rest'

    I've been impressed by England. They are so much stronger than other sides and are a step above everybody else.

    England have more in the tank, they need to cut down the error count, and I would like to see more of the play come through Zoe Harrison's hands alongside Katy Daley-Mclean as a play-making partnership.

  4. 'We want the Grand Slam'

    FT: Wales 12-51 England

    England prop, and player of the match Sarah Bern, told Sky Sports: "We definitely want to achieve the Grand Slam, but Italy played very well yesterday so we are taking each game as it comes."

  5. Full-time - Wales 12-51 England

    England surpass 50 points for the second time this year as they move back to the top of the table.

    The Grand Slam is very much still on...

  6. Try - Wales 12-51 England

    Katy Daley-Mclean

    Just as Wales did at the other end, England go through the phases before Katy Daley-Mclean caps off an impressive performance with the visitor's ninth try from five yards out.

  7. Post update

    Wales 12-46 England

    As we enter the final minute, England have the ball back as they prepare for a line-out just inside the Welsh 22.

  8. Converted try - Wales 12-46 England

    Cerys Hale

    The Welsh pick and go tirelessly but they initially struggle to make any inroads.

    After 28 phases, Wales are rewarded for their perseverance and replacement prop Cerys Hale claims the try near the posts.

    The two points are added from the conversion.

  9. Post update

    Wales 5-46 England

    It's not pretty but the hosts win their own line-out. The ball is moved in-field by the forward pack but the English line are standing firm.

  10. Post update

    Wales 5-46 England

    Now then, Wales have a chance to add a second try with a line-out on the English five-metre line.

    Can they retain the ball and put the squeeze on?

  11. 'England depth crucial'

    Wales 5-46 England

    Heather Fisher

    2014 Women's World Cup winner on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    England have got their power runners on and are looking for the extra points to finish off the match. They have such depth and experience on the bench whereas Wales have not got that.

  12. Converted try - Wales 5-46 England

    Sarah Beckett

    It's a first international try for England flanker Sarah Beckett and the Red Roses continue to dominate in the sunshine.

    The Welsh defence has been much improved in the second half, but they go missing as Beckett strolls through to dot down under the posts.

    Zoe Harrison kicks the two points.

  13. Post update

    Wales 5-39 England

    England clearly have a plan in place to produce ball-playing prop forwads.

    Shaunagh Brown picks up where Sarah Bern left off and she powers through the Welsh line from inside her own half.

    The Harlequins prop gains 20 yards for the visitors, but Katy Daley-Mclean takes here eye off the ball and England lose possession.

    Becky Grey

    Dow's got to be happy with that on her first start during this year's Six Nations.

  15. 'Great finish from Dow'

    Wales 5-39 England

    Heather Fisher

    2014 Women's World Cup winner on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra

    Abbie Dow put in some great fend-offs. There's nothing better than when you pass to a winger and watch them go like that.

    It's a great finish, she's got a lot to offer with her pace and is so dangerous with ball in hand.

  16. Try - Wales 5-39 England

    Abigail Dow

    The ball is back in England hands and Katy Daley-Mclean shows and goes before passing to Abigail Dow, and the winger does the rest.

    She brushes off three defenders with a strong fend off the left hand to score England's seventh try.

  17. Post update

    Wales 5-34 England

    The try stands but Zoe Harrison misses the conversion.

  18. Post update

    Wales 5-34 England

    Hang on, we are just checking with the TMO whether the try is legitimate...

  19. Try - Wales 5-34 England

    Catherine O'Donnell

    It's taken 20 minutes, but finally we have the first points of the second-half.

    The England forwards show good patience before Catherine O'Donnell powers over from close range.

    The try is met with some pushing and shoving on both sides, but calm is quickly restored.

  20. Post update

    Wales 5-29 England

    Becky Grey

    BBC Sport at Cardiff Arms Park

    Feels a bit harsh taking Sarah Bern off after that. She was so close to a hat-trick!
