Valkyrie stars shine for England in victory over France

York Valkyrie stars Georgie Hetherington and Eboni Partington were on the scoresheet as England Women beat France 42-0 in Toulouse on Saturday.

Hetherington enjoyed a dream England debut as she registered a try and an assist on her first senior outing for her nation.

The utility, who started at full-back, found a brilliant short ball to put Amy Hardcastle over for the afternoon's second score and grabbed a try herself when stepping through untouched down the right flank after collecting a Zoe Harris pass midway through the first period.

Partington also bagged a try just after the hour mark, adding to the 12 tries she has managed for the Valkyrie this year. The winger dived over in the left corner after latching onto a Keara Bennett short-side pass.

York prop forward Liv Wood also started for England during the convincing victory, which saw Anna Davies (two), Harris, Paige Travis and Emily Rudge go over the whitewash.
