World Cup winning England hooker Emma Croker scored five tries as Richmond Ladies put Aylesford to the sword last Sunday.

Croker led the charge as Richmond romped to a 74-0 win thanks to further scores from with Oli Davies (two)and Jackie Shiels (two), Fiona Fletcher, second row Rowena Burnfield and number eight Anna Caplice.

The match should have been played out in the World Cup Fanzone, but was switched to the Athletic Ground at the last minute with the pitch in Old Deer Park inadequately prepared.

Richmond top the Premiership table by four points ahead of Saracens.
