Royal Air Force and England Rugby Union star Amy Cokayne helped England get their Six Nations campaign off to a flying start with a 58-7 win over Scotland in round one.
The England hooker scored two first-half tries to contribute to England's total of 10 tries as the Red Roses began their quest for a fifth successive Six Nations title.
Their opponents, Scotland, had to do without their RAF star Sarah Bonar who is recovering from a collarbone injury but was named to Scotland's Six Nations squad earlier this month.

Due to playing in the Six Nations, Cokayne, Bonar and Morris were absent from the Royal Air Force's Inter Services opener against the Royal Navy on Saturday, where the light blues won with a 10-17 victory in Plymouth.
It is yet to be determined whether they will be available to play for the RAF when they face the Army in the second round of the Inter Services in Gloucester on 15 April.
Carys Williams-Morris will appear again for Wales when they play Scotland on 1 April as Sarah Bonar continues to recover from her injury.
Amy Cokayne will appear for England once again when they face Italy on 2 April.
