Scotland's record cap-holder Chris Paterson has been made an MBE in the New Year Honours List.

The 33-year-old, who announced his international retirement earlier this month, amassed 809 points in 109 internationals.

Wales veteran Martyn Williams, the 36-year-old flanker who has won 103 caps but has recently been sidelined with a broken arm, is another to be awarded the MBE.
