England's women emulated their male counterparts by beating New Zealand, completing a 3-0 series victory in the process.

Less than three hours after Stuart Lancaster's men completed a 38-21 win, Gary Street's team triumphed 32-23 on the same pitch at Twickenham.

Early tries from Katherine Merchant and Emily Scarratt put England 12-0 up before Rawina Everitt cut the deficit.

Merchant's second touchdown and one from Roz Crowley saw England lead 24-15 at half-time, Selica Winiata with the score for New Zealand.

Jo Watmore's try and Scarratt's penalty ensured a comfortable win despite Kendra Cocksedge's try for the Black Ferns 10 minutes from time.

England wing Michaela Staniford picked up her IRB Women's Player of the Year award after the match.
