England celebrated the staging of their historic first match against the Barbarians by cruising to a 40-14 victory at Twickenham.

Hooker Lark Davies led the charge by scoring a hat-trick in front of an impressive crowd of 17,402, while wing Kelly Smith, flanker Poppy Cleall and prop Hannah Botterman also touched down.

The Red Roses led 28-0 at half-time but the Barbarians threatened a fightback through tries from Fiao'o Fa'amausili and Millie Wood until Davies and Smith put the result beyond doubt. 

Ireland internationals Sene Naoupu, Claire Molloy and Hannah Casey were in the Baa-baas squad.
