Women's Six Nations: RAF Star Part Of Winning England Side

Amy Cokayne and England sealed the title with a 10-6 win over France.

The RAF's Amy Cokayne has won the Women's Six Nations with England for the third consecutive year.

A 10-6 win over France sealed another title for the Red Roses with the Air Force player featuring as a substitute.

After a dominant 52-10 win over Scotland in the first round of matches, England continued their momentum by thrashing Italy at the Stadio Sergio Lanfranchi in Parma.

That meant a win over France would seal the title and despite a much closer contest, England came out as victors.

Post-match, Cokayne took to Twitter to dedicate the victory to the support she receives from her service.

Cokayne is a major part of the RAF team who are the current Inter Services champions.

Prior to the Women's Six Nations, Cokayne spoke to Forces News and said she hoped more people would tune into this year's tournament.

She said: "Now that's it on BBC iPlayer and stuff, hopefully, we should get some good viewing figures.

"With it being just after the men's tournament, the Six Nations is on people's minds at the minute.

"Having our own tournament, you are going to get the hardcore women's rugby fans but because there's no competition with the men's rugby, people will just want to watch rugby hopefully.

"You might get some crossover with people that have never watched the game before."
