The Red Roses came from behind, recovering from an early France score to take the title. Sarah Bern and Abbie Ward converted two first-half tries to give England the advantage before Emily Scarratt’s penalty expanded The Red Roses’ lead.
England held on down the stretch to notch their 23rd Test victory in a row.
“Our forwards were phenomenal and got through so much work,” said Scarratt. “There are things to look at but now we want to celebrate it because it’s been a hard campaign.”
The Red Roses will now gear up for the World Cup, set to kick off in October.
