When fly-half Katy Daley-Mclean made her England debut against Scotland in 2007, fewer than 300 people were there to watch.

Twelve years on, the 33-year-old is preparing to face Scotland again as she bids for a seventh Six Nations Grand Slam with the Red Roses.

England have dominated the tournament this year, scoring more than 50 points in three of their four wins – one of which was in front of a record crowd of 10,545 at Exeter’s Sandy Park.
