Last Updated: 13/02/17 5:14pm
World champions England scored 11 tries as they crushed Wales 63-0 in Cardiff to make it two successive Women's Six Nations wins this season.
Wales had no answer at the Arms Park in front of a 4,000-strong crowd as England's women followed up last weekend's Twickenham victory over France by blitzing their opponents in dominant fashion.
Worcester winger Lydia Thompson led the way by scoring three tries, while Amy Wilson-Hardy and Danielle Waterman both crossed twice.
And the one-sided success was further underlined through touchdowns from Amy Cokayne, Natasha Hunt, Katy McLean and Sarah Hunter, with Emily Scarratt kicking four conversions.
England led 36-0 at half-time, and it was always damage-limitation for a Wales team outgunned in every key department.
England coach Simon Middleton said: "We are proud of how we came out and played today. We definitely built on our performance against France and it was a real team effort out there.
"There are still things for us to work on but it was great to get the clean sheet and keep them from scoring as Wales put up a strong fight, right up to the final whistle."
The victory puts England top of the Six Nations standings on nine points, though Ireland could usurp their rivals by recording a bonus-point win over Italy at Stadio Tommaso Fattori on Sunday.
Meanwhile, France strolled to an emphatic 55-0 victory over Scotland at the Stade Marcel-Deflandre in La Rochelle.
The hosts scored three tries before the half-time interval to put themselves on course to secure their first victory of the Six Nations campaign.
France then added a further six tries after the break to assure themselves of the points and condemn Scotland to their second successive defeat.
Sunday saw Ireland claim a bonus point 27-3 win in Italy to move top of the Women's RBS 6 Nations table.
Hannah Tyrrell scored a try in additional time as the visitors, winners in Scotland last weekend, claimed the bonus.
It had been 3-3 at half-time, but Ireland scored four unanswered tries in the second half, with Leah Lyons, Sophie Spence and Paula Fitzpatrick also scoring.
