Women's Rugby World Cup: England win 'surreal' - Gary Street England's 21-9 victory over Canada in the Women's Rugby World Cup final felt "surreal" and a "bit like a dream", said head coach Gary Street. Centre Emily Scarratt scored 16 points as England, who had lost the last three finals, won in Paris to claim the title for the first time since 1994. "I still can't quite believe we're world champions," said England vice-captain Sarah Hunter. "We're just so proud of everyone involved," added Street. "We've been on a long journey but to have that trophy makes it worthwhile. It's a pretty amazing feeling." Full-back Danielle Waterman scored a first-half try and Scarratt crossed late on as England won the tournament for only the second time, having beaten the United States in the 1994 final. "You dream about being an England captain and lifting the World Cup," said skipper Katy McLean. "That's something I've just gone and done." She added: "It's a team sport and you have such a bond within the group. I've never felt that as much as I have with this group of players and staff. Every single one is a world champion, it's amazing." England had lost the last three finals to New Zealand - in 2002, 2006 and 2010 - but their experience proved decisive this time as they beat a Canada side playing in their first. "It perhaps wasn't our best performance and it didn't quite click at times, but the true team showed that, when we're under pressure, we keep going, picking each other up off the floor," added Hunter. "Our defence was simply outstanding." Prime Minister David Cameron was among those paying tribute, tweeting: "Huge congratulations to England women on their first World Cup triumph in 20 years. Your country is so proud of you." England's 2003 men's Rugby World Cup winners Jason Robinson, Lawrence Dallaglio and Richard Hill also congratulated Street's side. Former England captain Dallaglio called the team "inspirational", while ex-England back rower Richard Hill tweeted: "Congratulations ladies. A proud day. I'm sure Tuesday training sessions feel worth it now!" England were in a strong position to win after two Scarratt penalties and Waterman's try put them 11-0 ahead after 31 minutes. Canada's Magali Harvey kicked a penalty shortly before half-time and then another two after the break to make the score 11-9. Even though Scarratt was successful with another penalty shortly afterwards, it was only when she scored a converted try in the closing minutes that England began to look safe. Street added: "Huge credit to Canada as well. I thought that they were excellent and made it extremely tough for us." Women's Rugby World Cup: England's winners 'back to work' England's victorious rugby union squad returned home from Paris on Monday after securing their first World Cup title in 20 years, but, for many of the players, it will be back to full-time work within days. Among them is Marlie Packer, a plumbing and heating engineer who will swap her boots for overalls before the week is out. "I've got two days hopefully to let this all sink in and then it's back to work," said the 24-year-old flanker. "I'll be heading back to London first and then down to Yeovil to see the family." But at least the Wasps forward, capped 28 times by her country, will have a World Cup winner's medal on her CV alongside her day-to-day career following Sunday's 21-9 success over Canada. "The boss emailed me on the morning of the final to wish me the best of luck, so they've been celebrating the success as much as I have," she added. Packer's story is a familiar tale. The women's game is yet to turn professional or benefit from the boost in sponsorship and media profile experienced by the likes of women's cricket, netball and football. Danielle Waterman, playing in her third World Cup, quit her job as head of coaching on the apprenticeship scheme at Gloucestershire's Hartpury College in order to focus on the tournament in France. "The support I've had from my family's been absolutely huge," said the 29-year-old full-back, daughter of Bath legend Jim Waterman. "My mum's been there for me emotionally. "I've had a real rollercoaster with injuries over the last four years and to have her here along with my dad, my brothers and my boyfriend has given me that extra boost to go out and play well. "It was definitely worth it quitting work. As a team, we've been on a massive journey and this has been coming for a number of years." Later this week, captain Katy McLean will be back in the classroom preparing her primary school pupils at Bexhill Academy in Sunderland for a new school term. The fly-half, 28, believes her side's win will do great things for the sport. "I know when I get back to school, I'm going to have everyone in my class out there playing rugby," she said. "There might be some reading and writing as well in between, but I think we can inspire the next generation. "The support's been absolutely phenomenal. I've had messages during the tournament from children as young as three and five." Vice-captain Sarah Hunter, a university development officer with the Rugby Football Union, admits being crowned a world champion makes the sacrifices of juggling full-time work with sport very worthwhile. "We train harder than anyone, getting up when it's dark outside and people are tucked up in bed, then working late to fit in a session at lunchtime," she said. "But there's absolutely no regrets about anything we do and moments like this make it all worth it." L'équipe d'Angleterre de rugby à XV féminin est une sélection des meilleures joueuses anglaises. Depuis son premier match en 1987, elle a remporté 10 Tournoi des six nations et deux Coupes du monde en 1994 et 2014. En 1983, le Women's Rugby Football Union (WRFU) est créé pour diriger le rugby féminin dans toute la Grande-Bretagne. Pour leurs premiers matchs internationaux en 1986, les Anglaises sont donc associées aux Galloises et aux Écossaises dans l'équipe de Grande-Bretagne. Peu à peu, de 1987 à 1990, cette équipe se divise par nations et l'équipe d'Angleterre de rugby à XV féminin joue et remporte son premier match en le 5 avril 1987 contre l'équipe du pays de Galles. Elle reste invaincue pendant quatre ans et perd son premier contre les États-Unis en finale de la première Coupe du monde féminine en 1991. En 1993, l'Angleterre remporte la première Canada Cup puis gagne la deuxième Coupe du monde en 1994 en prenant leur revanche en finale face aux États-Unis. En cette année 1994, le Rugby Football Union for Women (RFUW) est fondé pour gérer le rugby féminin sur l'Angleterre seule, en lieu et place du WRFU. Par la suite, les Anglaises remportent les deux premières éditions du Tournoi britannique de rugby à XV en 1996 et 1997 ainsi que le Championnat européen des nations 1997. En 1998, elles s'inclinent en demi-finale de la Coupe du monde face aux futures vainqueurs, les Néo-zélandaises, et terminent à la troisième place. De 1999 à 2001, elle enchainent trois Grands chelems consécutifs dans le Tournoi des cinq nations. Le Tournoi se joue à six à partir de 2002 et les Anglaises s'inclinent face à la France et terminent à la deuxième place de la compétition. C'est également la place qu'elles occuperont deux mois plus tard en Coupe du monde après une nouvelle défaite face à la Nouvelle-Zélande. La Coupe du monde 2006 ressemble à la précédente et elles subissent une nouvelle fois la suprématie des Néo-zélandaises en perdant 25-17 en finale. Entre temps, elles réalisent de nouveaux Grands chelems dans le Tournoi en 2003 et 2006, puis plus tard en 2007 et 2008. En 2009, elles remportent une nouvelle fois le tournoi malgré une défaite de justesse, 16-15, contre le équipe du pays de Galles. Elles gagnent également les deux premières éditions de la Nations Cup disputées en 2008 en Angleterre et en 2009 au Canada.
