When I first played for Scotland, we played in front of crowds in the low hundreds, so it is amazing to see Hive Stadium is sold out for tomorrow's match with England. 

It is a reflection of how far the team has come, and I know some people are disappointed they haven't managed to get tickets. 

I have spoken to a few families and while they don't know anyone playing or have kids who are playing rugby, they want to go and watch Scotland Women because they know it will be entertaining. 

The first game I played for Scotland was in front of about 200 people - now the girls will be running out tomorrow in front of more than 7,000. A sell-out crowd is so encouraging.

The atmosphere in The Hive is amazing anyway, so I have no doubt it will be electric tomorrow. 

For Scotland, it's great to have Lana Skeldon back fit. She is such a leader and a solid player within the group, and although Elis Martin did really well against France, playing England you want your most experienced players on the pitch.

Chloe Rollie is also back at fullback having been on the bench for the first two games. She also brings a wealth of experience to the team and with England's back three being as dangerous as they are, you want someone who has been there, done it and seen it all, to lead the team from the back. 

It's great to have the experience of Lana at the front and Chloe at the back in the team against England.

I'm also excited to see Meryl Smith at 12 where she offers something completely different to Lisa Thomson. She's not as direct a runner, but she'll try to create things and look to find space in the England defence in whatever way she can.

Scotland have to stick to their own style, they can't try to match England at their own game and having Meryl at 12 will give them more opportunities. 

Having Meryl at fullback for the first two games has given them two options as a first receiver, but having her at 12 means you've got a second distributor who can get the ball out wide. 

England are the best team in the world. They are probably about 10 years ahead in terms of their professionalism and the conditioning of their athletes.
