16. Connie Powell 7.5

(on 40’ for Atkin-Davies)

On at the half-time break as John Mitchell freshened up the front row. Powell continued on the solid scrummaging start that the Red Roses asserted on Wales. Hit a great line at 55 minutes but lost the ball in contact. Brilliant line break at 69 minutes as she makes 20m downfield. 

17. Mackenzie Carson 6

(On 59′ for Botterman)

Had to follow a strong loose-head performance in Hannah Botterman, yet Mackenzie Carson certainly had a crack at doing just that. The powerful scrummager kept the tempo high up front, and ensured that the Red Roses set-piece ran as seemlessly as it did with the starting forwards. Presented good hands to, as she shipped the likes of Meg Jones into space.

18. Kelsey Clifford 6.5

(On 52’ for Maud Muir)

Solid involvement at the set-piece, and showed her subtle handling with a nice offload to send Connie Powell through a gap. The replacement tight-head stepped up, and like Carson, ensured that England maintained a good tempo of attack with the set-piece.

19. Abbie Ward 6

(On for Zoe Aldcroft 59’)

Penalised for a late hit on the nine at 67 minutes, in what was an unforced error. Ward made a replacement appearence at her home ground of Ashton Gate, and was reminding the local supporters of her defensive talents. The remainder of her hits were well timed, and Ward worked well around the park to boot.

20. Maddie Feaunati 6

(On for Marlie Packer 59’)

Involved right away with a darting run, evading and powering through defenders. Retained her spot amongst the replacements following her England debut last week in Italy. Maddie was dynamic in defence, as her impressive line speed caught the ball distribution off guard, and halted the Welsh attacking flow.

21. Lucy Packer 6.5

(On for Mo Hunt 65’)

The replacement scrum half brought a high-octane attitude off the bench, as she was utilised to snipe around the tired Welsh defenders. Linked up well with Zoe Harrison, as she distributed the ball at a quick pace, and ensured to not get caught out with the ‘use it’ referee calls.

22. Zoe Harrison 6.5

(On for Holly Aitchison 65’)

Dropped to the substitutes bench for this match, after making her comeback from injury in the Six Nations opener against Italy. Harrison led the back-line for the final 15 minutes, and closed out the fixture to send England victorious at two wins from two. Was not presented with a kick off the tee, but found touch well from the boot.

23. Sydney Gregson 7

(On for Jess Breach 60’)

Ended her nine-year wait for a Red Roses appearence, and she received a strong reaction from the Ashton Gate faithful. Described as one of the PWR’s best centres by John Mitchell, and Gregson certainly stepped up to the monicker with a solid outing.
