Today marked the moment when Scotland Women's captain Donna Kennedy won her 100th cap for her country.

However, she was unable to celebrate her momentous achievement with a win as Scotland lost by three tries to two.

Both Lucy Millard and Tanya Griffith crossed the line for Scotland in the first half to give them a ten point lead at the break.

In the second half, with Scotland suffering from a combination of fatigue and French pressure, the hosts ran in three tries and added a penalty to their tally to pull the game from Scotland's grasp.

Speaking after the game, Scotland Womenâ's head coach, Lee Adamson said: "Today was always going to be a difficult game, especially with the added pressure of Donna’s historic 100th cap. The players really wanted to give her the win that she deserved.

"The girls put in a magnificent performance in the first half only to be undone by a more accomplished French team."

After today's game, the Scotland Women's team will commemorate Donna's historic cap record with a series of presentations. She will receive a special golden cap, an official book of congratulations from the team and the local community in Maurepas presented her with a gift alongside a French player who had just won her first cap today.
