RAF rugby union star Amy Cokayne scored a hat-trick of tries as England beat New Zealand 56-15 at Franklin's Gardens.

The Harlequins player, who was recently a guest on the Forces Sport Podcast, was a key part of what was a record-breaking win for the Red Roses.

It was the first time New Zealand's women's team have ever conceded more than 50 points in a match.

The result underlines the belief that England will be heavy favourites to win next year's World Cup with Cokayne hoping to play a big part of the tournament.

Hooker Cokayne is now the only player to have ever scored a hat-trick against the Black Ferns and the performance earned her the player of the match award.

She completed her treble just four minutes after half-time.
