Paula George helped England beat Scotland 22-10 at Twickenham on Saturday in her last international.

Leading 15-3 just after half time and looking comfortable, England let Scotland back into the game.

But a Jo Yapp try in the 71st minute sealed the win after tries from Karen Andrew and two for Kim Shaylor.

Head coach Geoff Richards said: "Paula George has been a great asset to English rugby and she goes out on a high, playing another great game."

And Richards paid tribute to George's contribution as a role model and top professional.

He added: "She has been a great asset to English rugby and a fantastic servant and ambassador for not just Women's Rugby, but Women's Sport."
