Follow live updates as defending champions England kick off their Women’s Six Nations against Scotland in Newcastle.

The Red Roses have not lost a game in the competition since 2018 en route to four consecutive titles, but are dealing with a number of significant absentees, with long-standing captain Sarah Hunter set to bow out after a hometown swansong on Saturday.

Hunter, England’s most capped player, will make her 141st and final appearance amid a period of significant change for the Red Roses, with head coach Simon Middleton departing after this tournament and a number of senior figures missing from his squad.

Scotland will hope to deny Hunter a perfect farewell; Bryan Easson’s side suffered a series of tight defeats in 2022, but it is hoped that the introduction of professional contracts and a planned evolution of their style will pay dividiends in this campaign.

England 53-0 Scotland

64 mins: Is this another? Aitchison looks for the crossfield switch. It’s palmed Sarah Beckett, who picks it up and spins for the line.

Looks like the kick just went out of play, though.

Meanwhile, Poppy Cleall is hobbling off with what looks to be a right ankle injury. That’s a worry for England ahead of the rest of the tournament.

And another! England turn to the lineout maul as they pin Scotland in the corner. Scotland aren’t able to come up with any answers, and Packer crosses for her second of the game.

England 48-0 Scotland

63 mins: The attendance at Kingston Park is a sellout: 10,053 – a good start for England as they build up to what they hope is a record-breaking crowd at Twickenham against France on the final weekend.

England 48-0 Scotland

60 mins: And here’s the moment we have all been waiting for: with a huge smile on her face, Sarah Hunter makes her way off the pitch for the final time in an England shirt. It’s by far the loudest Kingston Park has been all day, as Hunter raises her arms to applaud the crowd.

16 years, 141 England games – legend.

England 43-0 Scotland

The conversion is good, and now England begin to ring the changes in the front row. Liz Crake cames on for her England debut, with Lark Davies and Kelsey Clifford on as well.

TRY! England 41-0 Scotland (Kabeya 51’)

48 mins: Scotland look to build on the halfway line but their attack is too slow and Lagi Tuima is quickly able to jump out and pressure the line. It results in a chance for England down the right wing – Abbie Dow hands it off to Sadia Kabeya, who takes a brilliant step around Helen Nelson and powers over!

England 36-0 Scotland

45 mins: A chance for Scotland! Helen Nelson looks for the switch to Coreen Grant, but the bounce defeats her and Abby Dow is able to clean up. It comes back for the Scotland penalty, but England’s scrum is too big.
