The Red Roses secured the 2019 Women's Six Nations Grand Slam with a 80-0 bonus-point win over Scotland at Twickenham Stadium.
Having already won their first four games with bonus points, England ran in 12 tries in front of a record crowd, of 13,278, for a women's game at Twickenham to secure the title France won last year.
It took just over two minutes for England to score as Poppy Cleall broke the line and fed Sarah Beckett for the flanker to cross under the sticks.
A cross field kick from Katy Daley-Mclean was gathered as the ball bounced by wing Jess Breach as she continued her run of scoring in every game of the 2019 Women's Six Nations.
Natasha Hunt darted through from a quick tap penalty before Breach got onto Emily Scarratt's kick forward for her second and England's bonus point.
The first half scoring continued as Cleall drove over following some impressive forward work, and it was the pack's work from driving maul from a lineout where Amy Cokayne dropped over the line off the back for a 45-0 lead at the break.
Simon Middleton's side did not let up after the break, and were back on the scoreboard with Sarah Bern's powerful drive off the back of a ruck got England's first try with captain Sarah Hunter scoring in similar circumstances a few minutes later.
Further tries from Scarratt, Cleall and Cath O'Donnell sealed the deal for the Red Roses.
England have won the women's Six Nations 15 times, as well as 14 Grand Slams. Their 2019 success followed the Rugby Football Union's move to award their squad with professional deals, making them the first union to do so in the 15-a-side format.
