Debutant Jessica Breach scored six tries as England Women marked a milestone game with a comprehensive 79-5 victory against Canada.

The Red Roses, in their first game since the Rugby Football Union confirmed the team would receive match fees for the first time, ran in 13 tries at Allianz Park in London.

Harlequins winger Breach raced over on England's left on three separate occasions as she completed a hat trick in the opening half-hour.

Rachael Burford also scored early on and Abigail Dow touched down under the posts a minute before half-time as England took a 29-0 lead at the interval.

Breach added her fourth try, bursting through the middle of the visiting defence, and after Amy Cokayne crossed the whitewash, the 20-year-old grabbed try number five in the corner.

Marlie Packer touched down before Cindy Nelles scored from close range to get Canada on the board in the 61st minute but Dow added her second soon after before Breach collected a high ball and surged over for her sixth.

Rochelle Clark crossed for England's 12th try before Breach set up fellow debutant Ellie Kildunne to finish the try scoring in the first game of the three-match series.
