England vs Scotland Six Nations LIVE: Latest from Twickenham

  • England will kick off knowing whether they are playing for the Six Nations title
  • If Wales beat Ireland in Cardiff they will secure the Grand Slam
  • If Ireland win, England would need to beat Scotland to secure the title
  • Scotland have not won at Twickenham for 36 years

ENGLAND vs SCOTLAND

Earlier today…

15:50: Did we all watch the classic at the Stadio Olimpico?

Yes, I’m being generous there. A clinical performance from France condemned Italy to a 22nd consecutive Six Nations defeat with a 25-14 win.

The Azzurri were already guaranteed the wooden spoon before kick-off but dominated large parts of the game and missed several opportunities to record their first Championship win since 2015.

Jacques Brunel’s side pounced on their chances and weathered the Italian storm in defence as they recorded a win that places them fourth in the table, four points above Scotland ahead of their Calcutta Cup clash with England.

Afternoon…

15:45: Hello everyone!

I was hoping to start this live feed with Ireland having a barnstormer against Wales – teeing up a dramatic Six Nations victory for England.

That’s not the case.

Wales are having a blinder. They are playing with great composure, power and precision.

Ireland can’t argue with the 16-0 scoreline at half time.

So unless Joe Schmidt can engineer a historic comeback in the second half – England are playing Scotland at Twickenham for Calcutta Cup.

Sorry folks – that’s how it is.
