England beats Wales 73-7 for a record-setting 25th straight victory.

In order to become the first international team to win 25 straight games, England thrashed Wales 73-7 on Wednesday as part of their preparations for the women's Rugby World Cup.

The England team, captained by Sarah Hunter, hasn't lost since July 2019 and enters the World Cup in New Zealand from October 8 to November 12 as the favorite.

Before center Helena Rowland finished off her hat-trick after the interval, the "Red Roses" scored six tries against Wales in the first half.

Following a minute of silence in honor of Queen Elizabeth II, there was applause to mark the end of her 70-year reign.

Players of both teams wore black armbands and their shirts included a tribute to the queen.

Head coach Simon Middleton is due to name the England squad for the World Cup on Tuesday.

England won the World Cup in 1994 and 2014 and finished runners-up on five occasions, including at the last tournament in 2017, where they lost to New Zealand in the final.

The upcoming edition of the World Cup was delayed by a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
