Defending Six Nations champions England beat Scotland to go top of the Women's Six Nations table. With Team England’s 2018 Bronze medal winner Emily Scarratt becoming the Red Roses record points scorer in the process.
The match was originally postponed from Sunday and moved to Murrayfield on Monday because of Storm Ciara. However conditions were still treachous as snow teamed down from the sky above.
Three first half try’s from Sarah Bern, Abby Dow and Scarratt’s 2018 Gold Coast team mate Jess Breach gave England a comfortable 22-0 lead at half-time.
England added another five try’s in the second half to take a 53-0 win, with Scarratt's late two-point conversion along with her four others and a penalty kick earlier in the match, meaning she overtook team-mate Katy Daley-McLean as England Women's all-time leading points scorer.
Dixon stars as Great Britain men beat New Zealand 3-0 in FIH Pro League
Two time Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Adam Dixon was key to Great Britain’s hockey team win over New Zealand in the FIH Pro League in Auckland.
The event is a qualifier for the World Cup and Olympic Games with the British men currently sixth in the nine-team table. Great Britain’s captain Dixon was player of the match but was honest after the match against the Black Sticks,
"We knew we did a lot of good things, we are experimenting, and finally today it started to click. I don't think we are the finished article, but we've come a long way over the course of the last three weeks away from home."
Gold Coast team mate Liam Ansell scored Great Britain’s other goal which was sandwiched either side of Dixon’s efforts.
