Georgina Gulliver helps England Women return to winning ways
Bath's Georgina Gulliver was the vice-captain as England Women got back to winning ways with a 34-0 triumph over Italy yesterday.
Although the championship is now out of their reach, England cruised to victory after making a flying start, scoring five tries in the first half.
Gulliver played 51 minutes of the match and had a hand in the fifth try, scored by prop Roz Crowley, as England bounced back from defeats against Ireland and France last month.
Head Coach Gary Street said: “It was not just the win that was important but the response of the players who came back from two defeats.
