Scotland kick at Murrayfield against

England, the Calcutta Cup match is

0:00:510:00:57

on.

0:00:570:01:01

on.

What a score! What a magnificent

try!

0:01:020:01:12

What a try for Scotland!

Try for

England!

0:01:210:01:32

It is a try! This must surely be his

greatest moment.

0:01:320:01:39

Sensational finish!

Can he get to

the line? He scores!

0:01:400:01:47

Oh, the perfect fairy tale!

A brilliant try!

0:01:470:01:58

A try with heart!

A try for his brother, Tony!

0:01:590:02:07

Scotland have beaten England at

Murrayfield.

0:02:070:02:11

England get 60! STUDIO: If that has

not got you in the mood for what is

0:02:110:02:19

to come, nothing will. Whether

player or fan watching at home or

0:02:190:02:23

around the world, a match that needs

no hyperbole, purple prose or

0:02:230:02:28

propaganda. It is the oldest

international in the world, and the

0:02:280:02:32

oldest rivalry. Scotland against

England.

0:02:320:02:38

And on a glorious late Winter's day,

it means that until at least 6:40pm,

0:02:380:02:44

the Grand Slam decider on the last

weekend of the

0:02:440:02:47

the Grand Slam decider on the last

weekend of the championship is still

0:02:470:02:50

on, Ireland against Wales is

literally going at this moment,

0:02:500:02:53

Wales have hung on against Wales,

30-27. The Grand Slam

0:02:530:03:01

30-27. The Grand Slam decider is...

37-27, Ireland must have scored at

0:03:020:03:05

30-27. The Grand Slam decider is...

37-27, Ireland must have scored at

0:03:050:03:06

the end.

What a dramatic finale. It was close

0:03:060:03:09

in Marseille last night but France

did not get a bonus point because

0:03:090:03:13

they only scored three tries Micro

against the Italians. In the blue

0:03:130:03:16

corner, Andy Nichol, in the white

corner Martin Johnson and Jeremy

0:03:160:03:23

Guscott. And Paul O'Connell

refereeing in the middle. Cake world

0:03:230:03:29

about Dier's narrow victory?

Bum

time at the end.

0:03:290:03:39

time at the end.

-- a quick word

about Ireland's narrow victory?

0:03:390:03:42

Squeaky bum time at the end. Ireland

got the job done at the end. It was

0:03:420:03:48

great to hear the interception at

the end to give them a good result.

0:03:480:03:51

Today coming here, Andy, on an

optimistic scale, where are you?

A

0:03:510:03:59

lot higher because we are at

Murrayfield are not taken. Scotland

0:03:590:04:03

are enjoying playing at Murrayfield

at the moment, they have won eight

0:04:030:04:07

out of nine in the text nations --

Six Nations. England are very good

0:04:070:04:14

at the moment, they start favourite,

but Scotland quite like that type

0:04:140:04:19

Mallards again.

I spoke to some of

the RFU hierarchy in Edinburgh

0:04:190:04:23

today, they are very confident. Do

you share that?

They are not

0:04:230:04:28

playing. From the first time I got

in the England squad it was drummed

0:04:280:04:32

into me that you do not lose this

game. I hope for England they do not

0:04:320:04:37

think it is routine. If you think it

is routine, no matter where Scotland

0:04:370:04:45

are, are in trouble. They will

battle and fight and you have to win

0:04:450:04:48

that before you can get any

dominance over them.

Eddie has been

0:04:480:04:54

around a couple of seasons, England

are ranked two in the world, they

0:04:540:04:58

have played every team except New

Zealand. They had a hiccup against

0:04:580:05:02

Ireland in Dublin but with the

forward pack, with the half-backs

0:05:020:05:06

playing as well as they are,

Farrell, it is all looking England.

0:05:060:05:10

But you do not take them for granted

because they are still decent,

0:05:100:05:15

Scotland.

Paul, totally objectively,

what do you think?

I fancy England.

0:05:150:05:21

I think Scotland are a far better

side than they have been playing. I

0:05:210:05:26

think there are opportunities for

Finn Russell in the way England

0:05:260:05:29

defend. I am confident for England

but I think Scotland have a real

0:05:290:05:34

chance.

History does not lie, when

0:05:340:05:38

chance.

History does not lie, when we look

0:05:380:05:39

at the facts and figures about the

Calcutta Cup matches, there is not a

0:05:390:05:43

lot of room of optimism from a

Scottish perspective?

Three wins in

0:05:430:05:48

18 years. The last one back in 2000.

That was a personal story. England

0:05:480:05:53

have been much better than Scotland

over the years. Scotland have not

0:05:530:05:58

scored a try against England at

Murrayfield since 2004. 18 years

0:05:580:06:04

ago, that is a long time ago. A lot

of hair has gone since then.

I think

0:06:040:06:12

you have more now!

That was a very

nice moment. A bit of tomato ketchup

0:06:120:06:19

on the chin.

But you look the part.

You guys battled.

0:06:190:06:30

You guys battled.

England came as

big favourites and you battled.

0:06:300:06:33

These games are one-offs, you had

0:06:330:06:35

big favourites and you battled.

These games are one-offs, you had to

0:06:350:06:35

come as an England player with a

sense that if we do not get it right

0:06:350:06:39

and subdue these guys, physically,

it could be very, very unpleasant.

0:06:390:06:43

You do not want to lose to Scotland.

Jeremy, you were in the great Grand

0:06:430:06:49

Slam in 1990, what was that like to

play in and what was that match

0:06:490:06:53

losing like afterwards?

I love the

game, I was new to international

0:06:530:07:00

rugby, I knew more of the Scottish

players than the English because I

0:07:000:07:02

went on tour with the Lions. I knew

how good they were, they made the

0:07:020:07:06

team, made the squad, I scored the

try, when I went off we were in the

0:07:060:07:10

lead. I absolutely don't know what

went wrong!

It wasn't my fault. That

0:07:100:07:16

team was scarred by their loss. At

the end of our team when I first

0:07:160:07:21

came in, they were scarred by that.

Coming here all guns blazing and

0:07:210:07:25

getting beaten. It was a very good

Scotland's team, don't get me wrong.

0:07:250:07:30

That was drilled into you, you do

not come here and lose. Everyone

0:07:300:07:35

wants to beat them, they are all

slightly different that they are all

0:07:350:07:38

the same, you have to subdue them,

physically. Let the crowd know. The

0:07:380:07:43

last 15 minutes when they played

France, only one team was going to

0:07:430:07:46

win. The crowd were in it, Scotland

were great. England don't want that,

0:07:460:07:52

they want people looking at the bus

timetable with ten minutes to go.

0:07:520:07:57

But unlike France in the second

half, England will not hand them the

0:07:570:08:00

game. Scotland will have to play,

try to dominate England, scored

0:08:000:08:05

tries to win.

We have this try from 14 years ago,

0:08:050:08:10

almost like an archive piece. Why is

this the last try Scotland has

0:08:100:08:15

scored

0:08:150:08:15

this the last try Scotland has

scored against Murrayfield against

0:08:150:08:17

England?

Many, many reasons. In the

interim period Scotland have lifted

0:08:170:08:22

the Calcutta Cup twice, Mike Blair

lifted it and Jason White, all by

0:08:220:08:26

kicks.

0:08:260:08:27

lifted it and Jason White, all by

kicks. Scotland will not win the

0:08:270:08:29

game today just buy kicks, they will

have to score tries. They are

0:08:290:08:34

averaging 34 points at Murrayfield

in those last nine games. If they

0:08:340:08:38

can get anywhere close to that, it

gives them a real chance.

0:08:380:08:41

can get anywhere close to that, it

gives them a real chance.

0:08:410:08:43

Looking at the statistics about

Scotland's recent form, whatever

0:08:430:08:48

level you are talking about, on a

day like today, this is when you

0:08:480:08:52

want to play, and play the game.

Maybe with Nigel Owens as the

0:08:520:08:56

referee we could have a free-flowing

match?

Nigel will let it flow as

0:08:560:09:00

much as he can. You think of the

Scottish back row, they are more

0:09:000:09:04

there are spoilers. Conditions are

ideal, if you are a forward or back

0:09:040:09:08

he will not moan. It will be a nice,

fast surface. The Scottish backs

0:09:080:09:13

will enjoy that. It is

0:09:130:09:21

will enjoy that. It is built for a

wonderful game. I used to love the

0:09:220:09:24

atmosphere here, even when Scotland

were getting on top of us, I did not

0:09:240:09:26

mind the crowd being noisy, it made

me want to play better.

0:09:260:09:29

Scotland will want to play, that

could play into England's hands. If

0:09:290:09:31

they play well, they can score

points. Huw Jones, Hopp, Finn

0:09:310:09:36

Russell, we have seen it. England

will want them to play, we will

0:09:360:09:42

slash the game to pieces, a little

bit like Wales did. That is the nub

0:09:420:09:46

of the game, how much they can play

and when.

The fast answers

0:09:460:09:52

glistening and sparkling in the late

sunshine, it is just the most

0:09:520:09:55

glorious evening. It could not be

more of a contrast to the weather at

0:09:550:10:00

Twickenham a couple of weeks ago

when England, with a little bit of

0:10:000:10:04

help from their friends individual

departments, came through so

0:10:040:10:08

narrowly against Wales. -- from

their friends in the video

0:10:080:10:13

department.

The question had been asked by Eddie

0:10:130:10:15

Jones, are you up to it?

England's kicking game, spot-on. The

0:10:150:10:22

chase.

0:10:220:10:25

England's passing game, spot-on. Joe

Launchbury's, the very best. Two

0:10:300:10:38

tries for Jonny May. This was going

only one way.

0:10:380:10:44

Until the moment of the match.

Question, try, yes or no? Question,

0:10:440:10:52

who was first to the ball? Good

questions, wrong answer.

The first

0:10:520:10:58

grounding is by England.

England V Wales in the wet, water to

0:10:580:11:07

cool tempers.

To make the colours run. To run and

0:11:070:11:19

two slides and to make the tackle of

the round.

0:11:190:11:26

England still right on track.

0:11:260:11:33

Here is an updated Six Nations

table, given what happened at the

0:11:340:11:39

Aviva Stadium a few moments ago.

Ireland winning with a bonus point

0:11:390:11:45

as well, you can see they are top

with 14 points. A losing bonus point

0:11:450:11:50

for Wales but they did not get a

bonus point for four tries. If

0:11:500:11:55

Scotland win today they are still in

with a chance, and England have to

0:11:550:11:59

go to France in a fortnight, that is

by no means a given. The

0:11:590:12:05

championship is wide open. Eddie

Jones has been much more low-key in

0:12:050:12:08

the build-up to this match than

before the game against Wales.

0:12:080:12:11

He joined Sonia MacLachlan.

0:12:110:12:18

before the game against Wales.

He joined Sonia MacLachlan.

0:12:200:12:24

Back where it started with England,

two years ago. How much

0:12:240:12:26

Back where it started with England,

two years ago. How much has the team

0:12:260:12:27

progressed?

We are moving in the

right direction, every day we get a

0:12:270:12:29

bit better, incremental improvements

all the time.

You said preparations

0:12:290:12:31

could not have gone any better, what

have they looked like?

The first

0:12:310:12:35

week we had Georgia, which is

fantastic for the set piece work.

0:12:350:12:38

The rest of the time we have worked

on the unstructured part of the

0:12:380:12:41

game, which will be important

against Scotland.

You have described

0:12:410:12:46

Scotland as akin to New Zealand,

what challenge do they present?

They

0:12:460:12:50

are very good at shifting the ball

into space, they have extreme pace

0:12:500:12:55

in Hogg. If you give them any loose

ball they will be very dangerous.

0:12:550:12:59

The England boys on the bench will

be wearing trousers to keep warm.

0:12:590:13:03

Will you be rocking a power? It is

quite cold.

I might need a full

0:13:030:13:10

suit!

Good luck today.

Cheers.

STUDIO: The England

0:13:100:13:16

replacement substitutes will have

the cycle shorts that get the

0:13:160:13:19

temperature in their nether regions

up to 40 degrees to get them hot and

0:13:190:13:23

raring to go when they had to go

onto the field of play. There is

0:13:230:13:27

somebody who might be a key weapon

this afternoon, the potent pace of

0:13:270:13:31

Jonny May on the wing. He is very

quick, and also pretty quirky.

0:13:310:13:37

It is hard to talk about myself, I

guess. Everybody is a bit different.

0:13:370:13:42

Are you?

I guess so, hopefully in a

good way.

0:13:420:13:51

For me, speed is a huge part of my

game. I was always nippy as a child,

0:13:510:13:56

going through my teenage years all

of my friends shot up and I was a

0:13:560:14:00

bit of a late developer. When I got

into my late teens, early 20s, I got

0:14:000:14:04

a bit taller and started getting

faster and faster, really. I back

0:14:040:14:08

myself to win the race. I don't want

to sound arrogant or any thing but

0:14:080:14:12

if I see space, I would back myself

to win the race.

0:14:120:14:18

Jonny May has real pace. Jonny May

away on his own! Jonny May for the

0:14:180:14:24

corner.

He is in!

What is your biggest

0:14:240:14:27

weapon, the flat speed or the

ability to go from zero to 60 in the

0:14:270:14:32

blink of an eye?

I work hard on my acceleration of my

0:14:320:14:36

top speed, often on a rugby pitch

the space can change very quickly.

0:14:360:14:41

That is the skill, Harry transfer

your speed, to make the decision as

0:14:410:14:44

to when the space changes and

identify it quickly and win the

0:14:440:14:48

race.

Is it true you stretch for up to

0:14:480:14:52

four hours a day?

No, I walk around

with my stopwatch out on my list of

0:14:520:14:57

things to do and the boys get into

me a little bit, but I spend a lot

0:14:570:15:01

of time not just retching but on the

recovery side of things. It is

0:15:010:15:05

important, if you want your body to

deliver you how to look after it,

0:15:050:15:11

the quicker you get, the boy you

have to look at yourself and recover

0:15:110:15:13

better to keep doing it. -- the more

you have to look after yourself.

0:15:130:15:19

What is on the list for today?

I

have been in the pool, had a sauna,

0:15:190:15:26

had a massage. Had a stretch, will

have small treatment. If I can get a

0:15:260:15:31

nap in, that will be good.

Music often divides us, what do you

0:15:310:15:36

listen to be for a game?

Where you

going with this?

Disney?

I have done

0:15:360:15:44

in the past. And I do still.

Anything positive, for me, before a

0:15:440:15:49

game. And that can be anything from,

like, Bob Marley awesome Disney.

0:15:490:15:57

Which Disney in particular?

The Lion

King, Hercules, I love all the

0:15:570:16:04

Disney films. Just anything. It is

not before I walk out, it will be on

0:16:040:16:09

the bus in when I am trying to relax

a little bit.

Frozen?

I don't mind

0:16:090:16:15

frozen. I might not pleasant about

one, that I liked the film.

What is

0:16:150:16:20

your fastest time over 100 metres?

10.7 a few years ago. Rugby is

0:16:200:16:28

different to a one legend metres

sprint, I have not read many of

0:16:280:16:31

them. You don't often get the

opportunity to train for 100 metres.

0:16:310:16:37

You and Anthony Watson head-to-head

over 100 metres, who wins?

Ask

0:16:370:16:41

Eddie!

STUDIO: I think Froze it

would be a good soundtrack at

0:16:410:16:49

Murrayfield. But we obviously have

the beauty and the beast here, we

0:16:490:16:51

can talk about Jonny May and paste

generally. You had the Underwoods on

0:16:510:16:56

your side, who were blisteringly

quick. In the modern game we talk

0:16:560:17:00

about physicality and bowl, if you

have that pace, what option does it

0:17:000:17:05

give you?

The beauty of pace is

everything around you slows down. If

0:17:050:17:10

you do not have pace, you are

scrambling. Jonny May has out and

0:17:100:17:15

out, flat speed. Straight-line

speed. Here's having to adapt his

0:17:150:17:21

speed into rugby, he has to learn to

run and catch, stay deep and time

0:17:210:17:25

his running onto the ball rather

than being too far ahead. He is

0:17:250:17:28

dealing that bit by bit. I do not

think there are many faster than him

0:17:280:17:33

in the Six Nations or in world

rugby, flat out without the ball.

0:17:330:17:38

That was a brilliant interview.

Speed is his point of difference, he

0:17:380:17:43

looks after it, mindset, trains like

an athlete, not a rugby player. It

0:17:430:17:48

makes a difference. He seems to be

fit to play a lot of the time and

0:17:480:17:52

can really use that speed. He looks

out about, great to see. A brilliant

0:17:520:17:59

interview for any young back three

player watching.

Not just in the

0:17:590:18:03

back, if you asked any rugby player

I think they would say they wanted

0:18:030:18:06

more speed. Simmonds, the try in

Rome. I know you can coach speed and

0:18:060:18:15

get quicker, but if you do not have

it, you never will. Jerry had it in

0:18:150:18:20

spades, and about that today.

And we

didn't!

And we didn't.

Plenty of

0:18:200:18:28

guys had speed but could not play

ball, you had to be able to play

0:18:280:18:31

rugby swell. You can have a

defensive scheme, a guy like that

0:18:310:18:36

can destroy it with his pace. Give

him the room to move and the ball,

0:18:360:18:42

they can destroy things. The worst

nightmare for a guy like me and Paul

0:18:420:18:45

would be facing somebody like him in

space, you do not have a prayer.

0:18:450:18:50

If there is a debate about

selection, Mike Brown and full-back,

0:18:500:18:54

where do you sit in whether Mike

Brown should have the number 15?

He

0:18:540:18:59

has been a to play for Eddie Jones

since he started coaching. You

0:18:590:19:04

cannot fault his aerial display. --

he has been a go to player. You have

0:19:040:19:10

players like Arnie and Dan Biggar

who can chase the ball, but all of

0:19:100:19:18

his time in international rugby,

this has been his bread and butter.

0:19:180:19:22

-- you can have players like Carney

and Dan Biggar. Finn Russell needs

0:19:220:19:27

to put the hair balls up for longer.

Mike Brown will do this all day

0:19:270:19:31

long. What he was criticised for a

bit was not passing in space, and

0:19:310:19:36

putting people in four simple

overlaps. But as an all-round player

0:19:360:19:41

he is good positionally and great

under the high ball, you cannot

0:19:410:19:44

fault him in those areas.

He was man

of the match in this game, Eddie

0:19:440:19:49

Jones came out and fully justified

it. He got a bit prickly about Mike

0:19:490:19:55

Brown, how good must Mike Brown have

felt when his coach came out

0:19:550:19:59

publicly saying how well he played

not just in Twickenham but in the

0:19:590:20:03

previous 24?

He was brilliant in

this game, but he has made some

0:20:030:20:09

massive booties in attack. People

have talked about Anthony Watson

0:20:090:20:14

possibly coming in because of that.

In international rugby you need the

0:20:140:20:20

aerial competitor that Brian is.

If

you are sat there is a forward,

0:20:200:20:24

you're going to play at Murrayfield,

Mike Brown is up there, you think

0:20:240:20:29

good. England scored their first try

of Wales not handling a high ball,

0:20:290:20:33

Watson got a hand in it, we scored.

You have to take care of that part

0:20:330:20:38

of the game, Mike Brown will do it.

And I also do not think he listens

0:20:380:20:43

to Disney!

We have Stuart Hogg on one side,

0:20:430:20:45

Mike Brown on the other, you pay

your money, you take your choice.

0:20:450:20:50

Murrayfield is filling up, bit by

bit. I am not sure what percentage

0:20:500:20:55

of the Scottish crowd has come from

the Borders, but that is still very

0:20:550:20:58

much the heartland of Scottish

rugby, whether it be Selkirk or Jack

0:20:580:21:04

Brabham or Galashiels or Holly

could. And the Scotland coach,

0:21:040:21:10

Gregor Townsend, comes from

Galashiels.

0:21:100:21:13

When I grew up watching rugby, the

best teams came from the borders.

0:21:130:21:17

Half the Scotland team was from the

Borders as well. To come back to my

0:21:170:21:24

old club and see so many people

here, it is great. Great for them

0:21:240:21:28

and for the club.

0:21:280:21:31

Back in Galashiels, have you been to

this cosy bar before?

By Contra

0:21:380:21:43

member, maybe once. Maybe after I'd

scored a try or two I would have a

0:21:430:21:47

drink that the president.

How old

were you when you started your rugby

0:21:470:21:53

here?

About five or six. During

Sunday mini rugby, not too far away

0:21:530:21:59

from here. -- doing Sunday mini

rugby. I played in my brother's and

0:21:590:22:06

attend team because they were short,

I was seven years old. We won and I

0:22:060:22:11

had two touches the whole time. -- I

played in my browser's under ten

0:22:110:22:18

team. I played all my age group

rugby here, my own jersey was

0:22:180:22:25

something I was very proud to wear.

When you see the players that have

0:22:250:22:30

achieved great success with this

club in Scotland, David Leslie,

0:22:300:22:34

Peter Dods, Chris Paterson, Legends

of the game. You feel very proud it

0:22:340:22:40

is your club.

Gala, like the old

Father Thames, just keep rolling

0:22:400:22:49

along.

I was hesitant, the winger took the

0:22:490:22:53

dummy, I gained an end and passed it

to Jim, scored at the corner.

It was

0:22:530:22:58

a lovely try.

Got the crowd going.

Gregor Townsend was blessed with

0:22:580:23:05

great talent. He could be

inspirational and try things nobody

0:23:050:23:08

else tried. Occasionally they did

not come off, but he could take the

0:23:080:23:12

criticism and go on. He has always

been very level-headed, I can see

0:23:120:23:16

that coming through in his coaching.

0:23:160:23:21

been very level-headed, I can see

that coming through in his coaching.

0:23:210:23:22

I am quite often as did you think he

would be a coach, I would say no,

0:23:220:23:26

but he was always very thoughtful.

Although he was material and how he

0:23:260:23:30

played, he played his own way, he

always had a reason for doing it. He

0:23:300:23:34

was always a deep thinker. Having

come from the borders, Gala is

0:23:340:23:39

steeped in rugby, it is not a great

surprise for me to see him being so

0:23:390:23:43

successful.

Have the players discuss the events

0:23:430:23:48

of Twickenham last year? They went

down full of confidence and

0:23:480:23:55

down full of confidence and ...

There will be specifics in terms of

0:23:560:24:03

lessons learned. In terms of the

Twickenham experience it is

0:24:030:24:06

irrelevant, we are playing at

Murrayfield and we will talk about

0:24:060:24:09

Twickenham when we go to Twickenham

in one year.

What are your memories

0:24:090:24:13

of Calcutta Cup? I think you played

ten?

How many did I win?

Do you

0:24:130:24:20

know?

One. Not a great success.

So

was it a much filled with foreboding

0:24:200:24:26

or did you always look forward to

it?

I did, I probably put too much

0:24:260:24:31

emotion into it. I had supported the

national team over the 80s and 90s,

0:24:310:24:36

seeing the game against England got

you really fired up and that came

0:24:360:24:41

rushing through my veins and body

through the game, I am sure it will

0:24:410:24:46

for our players.

Will it be through

maturity or the fact it is a

0:24:460:24:49

different role of the coach that you

have to step back and keep the

0:24:490:24:54

emotions in check?

I think it will

be calm, there is a real edge to our

0:24:540:24:59

preparations, there is excitement

when you how to prepare against a

0:24:590:25:02

team as good as England in such an

important fixture for everyone in

0:25:020:25:06

Scotland. That is the biggest game

of the year, every year. We can't

0:25:060:25:11

wait to play.

STUDIO: Five years

behind Greg at Galashiels Academy

0:25:110:25:15

was a young man who many years later

kicked England to defeat ten years

0:25:150:25:20

ago. He joins us now. And the big

question is whether this crop of

0:25:200:25:26

players currently warning up behind

us can supersede Chris Paterson's

0:25:260:25:30

team as the last Scottish side to

beat England. If they are going to

0:25:300:25:35

do it today, how important is a

player like Peter Horne at 12, given

0:25:350:25:39

he is up against Owen Farrell?

Crucial. So much about the

0:25:390:25:45

half-backs in the control, Peter

Horne is another ten. He is a great

0:25:450:25:49

communicator, organises and

distributes very well. If there are

0:25:490:25:53

ruck in the midfield, he is also a

left footed kicker, he will bring a

0:25:530:25:57

lot of balance. It Scotland want to

create balance against England, they

0:25:570:26:02

had to get outside the fast press.

Having two distributors goes a long

0:26:020:26:06

way.

Peter Horne has spoken about

studying Owen Farrell in a bid to

0:26:060:26:11

improve his own game. Are they

similar?

Pretty similar, they can

0:26:110:26:16

both play ten or 12, quite

aggressive. Very aggressive, both of

0:26:160:26:20

them. Good defenders. Peter Horne

missed a couple of tackles against

0:26:200:26:25

Wales but he is a defend

accommodative competitor. There are

0:26:250:26:30

similarities.

Finn Russell's kicking

out of hand was a little wayward at

0:26:300:26:35

times against France, will Peter

Horne take some of that

0:26:350:26:37

responsibility?

Here's a good

communicator. He played reasonably

0:26:370:26:42

well against France, Finn Russell,

his mistakes are obvious. He had a

0:26:420:26:49

bad game. He will relish the

pressure today. Peter Horne in Greig

0:26:490:26:53

Laidlaw inside him, they will help

each other. This game is won and

0:26:530:26:58

lost on physicality and Peter Horne

goes a long way to deciding if it is

0:26:580:27:01

won or lost, as well.

The clock

ticks on, less than 20 minutes to

0:27:010:27:06

kick-off.

The clash between two old

enemies for the Calcutta Cup.

0:27:060:27:15

Magnificent run, he is over!

0:27:150:27:22

Magnificent run, he is over!

Rory

Underwood, magnificent try for

0:27:220:27:25

England.

England have scored.

It

will be a try for Jason Lawrenson!

0:27:250:27:32

Sensational!

0:27:320:27:38

Sensational!

A brilliant try! That,

surely, is England's Grand Slam try?

0:27:380:27:46

Hi, long and straight!

Scotland have

won the most dramatic victory.

0:27:460:27:59

won the most dramatic victory.

A

hat-trick for Solomon Joseph! What a

0:27:590:28:01

way to win the Six Nations!

Calcutta

Cup, Scotland V England. No

0:28:010:28:07

incentive needed.

In the distance

over bad, at around five past 12 or

0:28:070:28:17

thereabouts, is Raeburn Place were

the first-ever international match

0:28:170:28:21

took place in 1871, and 18 years

later the first Calcutta Cup match

0:28:210:28:24

took place. It finished, as we plan

to Murrayfield, Scotland nil,

0:28:240:28:30

England nil. A thriller. In an idle

moment at 9:30am on the match day, I

0:28:300:28:37

looked at the team sheets for that

day. Scotland had a proper with one

0:28:370:28:41

of the greatest names in the history

of international rugby, Bulldog

0:28:410:28:46

Irvin. That was his name. Fantastic.

Is Owen Farrell the most valuable

0:28:460:28:52

player in international rugby at the

moment?

His currency is high, for

0:28:520:28:58

sure, given how he is playing. He is

valuable for England, along with the

0:28:580:29:03

likes of Billy Vunipola. If they are

not involved in the World Cup,

0:29:030:29:07

England struggle. This guy is so

influential. He is the most improved

0:29:070:29:12

international rugby player. Every

gay he improves another aspect of

0:29:120:29:16

his game. I thought when he first

came into the England set up his

0:29:160:29:20

attack was limited -- every year he

improves this is two minutes ten

0:29:200:29:26

seconds into the game. He has guns,

seen the play some put boot to ball

0:29:260:29:33

and weighted perfectly. -- he has

scanned, seen the play. He spotted

0:29:330:29:40

the dogleg in defence, attacked on

the outside, went into space, laid

0:29:400:29:43

the ball off and he even had time

for jobs that the referee but still

0:29:430:29:49

keep his composure. He can see the

space, a nice pass over to Joe

0:29:490:29:57

Launchbury, that was an incredible

off-loads by Joel. For me, the

0:29:570:30:03

biggest party has improved as his

attacking. He's another dogleg. He

0:30:030:30:08

has the composure again, a quick

glance. He has seen the space and

0:30:080:30:12

continually puts pressure on the

opposition. Every touch he has, he

0:30:120:30:16

has an impact. A big play from a

world-class player. He is getting

0:30:160:30:22

down and dirty. Stopping the

momentum of the opposition. Right at

0:30:220:30:26

the end of that match he has the

composure and the headspace to stick

0:30:260:30:30

up a really high hanging ball. Mike

Brown gets there and pushes it in

0:30:300:30:35

defence, puts more pressure on the

opposition. A world-class player.

0:30:350:30:43

So much of England is about Owen

Farrell and so much of Scotland

0:30:430:30:46

today will be about Finn Russell. Is

there any possibility that Finn

0:30:460:30:49

Russell wouldn't start today?

I

don't think so, because he is

0:30:490:30:53

Scotland's stand-off and will be for

the next few years. He had a bad

0:30:530:30:56

game two weeks ago and Townsend made

the choice of putting Greig Laidlaw

0:30:560:31:02

out there. Talk about the

consistency that Owen Farrell is

0:31:020:31:07

hitting every time. His bad game is

still a very good game. That's what

0:31:070:31:11

Finn Russell needs to find, that

consistency. He's got all the

0:31:110:31:15

skills, a brilliant temperament,

just needs to find the consistency.

0:31:150:31:19

He got affected from the first

performance in Cardiff. He almost

0:31:190:31:23

swung the pendulum too much the

other way against France. He tried

0:31:230:31:25

to kick more, which is OK, a good

tactic, you just have to kick well.

0:31:250:31:30

When's the last time you saw Owen

Farrell make a bad kick? That's what

0:31:300:31:36

Finn Russell has to do today. As a

role model, he is facing him today.

0:31:360:31:41

Not directly, but just one out in

the number 12 shirt.

In the war of

0:31:410:31:49

words before the International

occasions, Gregor Townsend was

0:31:490:31:52

talking about the England defence,

saying they are offside a lot of the

0:31:520:31:55

time. They suddenly play on the edge

and are definitively a very hard

0:31:550:31:58

team to breach.

This is turnover

ball. One thing they want to do is

0:31:580:32:04

attack your attack. There's only

three defenders here. Owen Farrell

0:32:040:32:08

fires hard and puts Jake Ball under

pressure and put

0:32:080:32:14

fires hard and puts Jake Ball under

pressure and put him back inside.

0:32:140:32:14

fires hard and puts Jake Ball under

pressure and put him back inside.

0:32:140:32:17

Pressure on the past and they fire

up the game. Even though they're

0:32:170:32:20

down numbers, their driving Wales

back all the time and they want to

0:32:200:32:24

attack your attack. That's what they

say in defence, England. Wales have

0:32:240:32:29

kicked the ball away and turned it

over. A 40 metre line break here. A

0:32:290:32:35

good break down the wing and England

should be under pressure here now.

0:32:350:32:41

Rob

0:32:410:32:47

they want to go at you all the time,

even if it's not on to go at you. A

0:32:470:32:53

break here leads to a penalty for

Wales. There is no better player in

0:32:530:32:58

the 6 Nations that I'll have ready

in the position to exploit the

0:32:580:33:04

opportunities the England defence

will give you. They put you

0:33:040:33:06

opportunities the England defence

will give you. They put you under

0:33:060:33:07

pressure certainly what they want to

attack you so much that they do

0:33:070:33:11

leave doglegs themselves and will

give you opportunities.

Martin, if

0:33:110:33:14

England are offside a lot of the

time, everyone is. Do you think the

0:33:140:33:18

assistant referees ought to take

more control of the situation to

0:33:180:33:21

make it a better game?

Absolutely.

The number one priority, get these

0:33:210:33:29

teams on-site all the way through

the game. If you are offside, it's a

0:33:290:33:33

penalty, just keep on going. Don't

do it early and forget, keep going

0:33:330:33:38

because space is such a premium.

England are saying to Finn Russell

0:33:380:33:44

today, come with your bag of tricks

and we'll stomp all over it. That's

0:33:440:33:49

going to be the game, Scotland's

attack. If you get in front of the

0:33:490:33:54

ball, you've got a chance. The

referees and the touch judges have

0:33:540:33:58

to be all offer it.

We spoke about

his early. The referees have to stop

0:33:580:34:03

coaching the players, trying to tell

them to get back onside, released

0:34:030:34:06

the ball, and penalised them. The

behaviour will change instantly.

It

0:34:060:34:10

must be nice to have enough money as

the RFU have, to say it lets fly the

0:34:100:34:17

Georgian pack over and have a couple

of scrummaging session is against

0:34:170:34:21

them. What do you think England

learn from this?

When you're in

0:34:210:34:25

camp, they now have the luxury of

this week, without the games, you

0:34:250:34:28

can train hard without having to

rest up for the game. Georgia are a

0:34:280:34:32

big strong men. They can scrummage.

It gives you a chance to play

0:34:320:34:36

someone different and have a really

good work-out. Not just specifically

0:34:360:34:40

getting ready for one game, you're

trying to improve as a team. They

0:34:400:34:44

look like they can scrummage, some

big strong boys.

Let's have a quick

0:34:440:34:49

word about Dylan Hartley.

0:34:490:34:50

big strong boys.

Let's have a quick

word about Dylan Hartley. Today he

0:34:500:34:53

perhaps almost unannounced becomes

the second most capped England

0:34:530:34:56

player of all-time, over from Jonny

Wilkinson, and 20 caps or so behind

0:34:560:35:04

Jason Leonard. In this super

analytics world, how important is

0:35:040:35:10

the captain still these days?

Still

very important because you give the

0:35:100:35:13

team a lead. You take the example,

set the example rather,. Its

0:35:130:35:20

difference now, the guy plays 50 or

60 minutes at the most. It's

0:35:200:35:23

different to how it was. To play

that long is

0:35:230:35:27

different to how it was. To play

that long is still a hell of an

0:35:270:35:29

achievement. He's still there and

his record as a captain is one of

0:35:290:35:32

the best in terms of win percentage.

He's very disciplined when he plays

0:35:320:35:35

for England. He has a different hat

on when he plays for England but

0:35:350:35:40

he's also an excellent scrummager.

We were worried for the French scrum

0:35:400:35:46

last week, for the Scottish scrum

when they played France two weeks

0:35:460:35:51

ago. It may not survive today.

England brought Georgia over,

0:35:510:35:55

putting big emphasis on the scrum.

Simon Burgess, it will be a big test

0:35:550:36:00

for him.

What's this moment like,

Andy?

It's amazing. We came up,

0:36:000:36:12

England went out first and we used

to keep them waiting and waiting and

0:36:120:36:14

waiting. Clive Woodward, I remember

him getting really annoyed and

0:36:140:36:20

turned to go down the tunnel and

there were pipers coming towards

0:36:200:36:26

him. This is where, as a player, you

want to explode out to Murrayfield,

0:36:260:36:30

like they're doing now.

An explosion

to greet the explosion of the two

0:36:300:36:35

sides. A little earlier than you

might normally expect because

0:36:350:36:40

there's going to be a presentation

to both sides. Big moment for all

0:36:400:36:50

the Scottish players, but also the

point that Martin made, from an

0:36:500:36:54

English perspective, this is a game

you just don't want to lose.

No, we

0:36:540:36:58

got burnt in 1990. The better side

won. It was a better site. Every

0:36:580:37:04

game since then, every game, we

wanted to win.

We alter dog about a

0:37:040:37:08

few people. Nathan Hughes is a

number eight today. What does he

0:37:080:37:14

bring to the England size?

He's go

forward guy, big powerful athlete.

0:37:140:37:19

He's not played a lot of rugby but

he'll be imperative. If he's on the

0:37:190:37:25

front foot, good things will happen

for England. Nathan Hughes really

0:37:250:37:28

has a big job to do, carrying the

ball for England.

Scotland don't

0:37:280:37:33

really have a Nathan Hughes. They

don't really have a blunt instrument

0:37:330:37:36

in the pack. Grant Gilchrist carried

the ball really well against France

0:37:360:37:43

but he's not really of primary

ball-carrier.

No, the impact in the

0:37:430:37:51

second half, Gregor Townsend might

have to go to his bench earlier.

0:37:510:37:55

Ryan Wilson again is there. He set

the passion, set the motion and he

0:37:550:38:00

will have George Ford and Owen

Farrell in his sights.

In the

0:38:000:38:06

context of how the match pans out,

Andy, do you think Scotland have to

0:38:060:38:10

be a head with 20 minutes or so to

go?

I think so, but more importantly

0:38:100:38:15

they have to start better than me

having either of the two games. In

0:38:150:38:19

Cardiff against France, they started

poorly. If you let England get away,

0:38:190:38:22

I don't think there's a way back.

Scotland needs to come out and get

0:38:220:38:27

their game going. We've talked about

Finn Russell, but he is the key

0:38:270:38:30

player here. He has to get

Scotland's game going but he has to

0:38:300:38:35

relax, also. He tries too hard and

did that in Cardiff, and if he does

0:38:350:38:40

that it might get away from him.

Will leave our guys on the podium

0:38:400:38:44

and go down to Sonia.

This isn't

something I've seen before on the

0:38:440:38:49

eve of the 6 Nations Test match but

indicative of the fact there's a

0:38:490:38:53

real edge to this game. As both sets

of players left the field after

0:38:530:38:58

warming up, they came off the pitch

together and there was a scuffle at

0:38:580:39:02

the mouth of the tunnel. Owen was

involved. John Barclay, the Scotland

0:39:020:39:08

captain, had to pull away a number

of his players will stop Farrell was

0:39:080:39:14

pulled away by some of his

team-mates. A real edge and you

0:39:140:39:17

wonder if some of that might spill

over into the game.

0:39:170:39:24

over into the game.

I didn't like

guys who smiled and shook hands with

0:39:250:39:27

the opposition before the game. It's

not that sort of game! You wake up

0:39:270:39:31

hating the world on this sort of

day. The only people you like those

0:39:310:39:35

who play for England. Everyone no.

In the studio, two of us are going,

0:39:350:39:46

great. The others are saying no.

Scotland versus England, this is

0:39:460:39:52

what it's about. You want to go out

there and skill aside and tactics

0:39:520:39:56

and whatever, you have to do it to

them before they do it to you.

I

0:39:560:39:59

need to mention one thing because we

received a fantastic e-mail today

0:39:590:40:03

from a lady called me Elliot. She

said could you please say hello to

0:40:030:40:06

my husband Christie Elliot, because

60 years ago today he made his debut

0:40:060:40:12

for Scotland against England? It's

his 85th birthday today. It's a bit

0:40:120:40:15

too cold to go to Murrayfield but

we'll be watching at home with many

0:40:150:40:19

millions of others. Many happy

memories, I'm sure, for you of

0:40:190:40:24

matches in days gone by. It's make

your mind up time. What we say,

0:40:240:40:29

Andy?

I want to see Scotland play

better, they have to play better

0:40:290:40:33

than against France. Their key is

Finn Russell. Their whole collective

0:40:330:40:39

game can improve by he himself

playing better than he did two weeks

0:40:390:40:43

ago. If they do that, they'll give

themselves a chance.

A massive

0:40:430:40:47

turnaround if he Finn Russell can

find his form. I think he's probably

0:40:470:40:51

going to get worse. I see England

winning by 10-15 points this

0:40:510:40:55

afternoon.

I love your optimism. I

feel a sense of foreboding. We don't

0:40:550:41:02

want to lose. I hope Scotland play

really well and I think England are

0:41:020:41:06

a little bit... They got a bit

defensive against Wales. I hope

0:41:060:41:09

Scotland can have a go and we have a

great game.

Murrayfield are all

0:41:090:41:14

behind us.

I think Scotland and Finn

Russell will turn it around and play

0:41:140:41:21

well again. I think England are too

far ahead of them at the moment.

It

0:41:210:41:24

was a fantastic match in Dublin

early today when Ireland beat Wales

0:41:240:41:28

and let's hope this game today is

equally as compelling. So much

0:41:280:41:32

history attached to this fixture.

This is the 136th meeting of the two

0:41:320:41:38

countries, who contested the first

ever international, but there's also

0:41:380:41:41

a really significant anniversary

today because 80 Dylan Mackin 80

0:41:410:41:45

years ago, England versus Scotland

at Twickenham was the first ever

0:41:450:41:48

game to be televised live. Scotland

won, won the triple Crown and also

0:41:480:41:53

won the championship. While the

enormity of the rivalry hasn't

0:41:530:41:57

changed, the intervening period, the

style of commentary has changed

0:41:570:41:59

somewhat. What the audience in 1938

would have made at our commentary

0:41:590:42:04

team, I think we do not know. They

will be with you after the anthems.

CHEERING

0:44:090:44:14

A song which speaks of this old

rivalry but in recent times it's

0:44:140:44:19

been rather an uneven contest.

Scotland need to improve over their

0:44:190:44:25

victory against France. Same team.

0:44:250:44:32

Grant Gilchrist was impressive

against France.

0:44:330:44:41

So much focus on Finn Russell at fly

half. Peter Horne is inside centre.

0:44:410:44:52

For England, a pack of power but

tremendous experience. 219 caps in

0:44:520:44:57

the front row. Joe Launchbury wins

his 50th cap.

0:44:570:45:03

Averaging almost 50 caps a man on

the back row. Jonathan Joseph scored

0:45:100:45:16

a hat-trick against Scotland last

year. Mike Brown Man of the Match

0:45:160:45:20

against Wales at full-back. On the

bench... Scotland only used half the

0:45:200:45:24

bench against France.

0:45:240:45:32

Dylan Hartley moving onto 92 caps

today, moving past Jonny Wilkinson.

0:45:370:45:43

Behind only Jason Leonard in English

terms. What a captain he's been for

0:45:430:45:48

England. Both teams gather in the

huddles far out on the turf of

0:45:480:45:52

Murrayfield. What a game we hope to

have here because in recent matches

0:45:520:45:58

perhaps this fixture hasn't served

up the best fare will stop and

0:45:580:46:04

listen to the noise at Murrayfield.

CHEERING

0:46:040:46:11

A chilly day for that sort of thing!

Nigel

0:46:110:46:13

A chilly day for that sort of thing!

Nigel Owens is the man in charge.

0:46:130:46:23

Three, two, one.

The countdown over,

we wait for the

0:46:240:46:29

Three, two, one.

The countdown over,

we wait for the latest instalment in

0:46:290:46:30

this, the oldest international

fixture in the game. The man with so

0:46:300:46:34

much to prove today, Finn Russell,

gets the Calcutta Cup under way.

0:46:340:46:39

Taken in by Launchbury.

0:46:390:46:44

The first ten, 20 minutes of this

game is so important. Scotland were

0:46:510:46:55

sluggish against Wales and France.

0:46:550:47:03

Penalty to Scotland and if Scotland

were looking for a brighter sparked

0:47:550:48:01

two start than in previous games,

they've got it.

A pity for Scotland

0:48:010:48:05

they couldn't get someone on Peter

when's shoulder when he made that

0:48:050:48:09

break.

0:48:090:48:16

Exactly what you don't want when you

play, to concede the early points as

0:48:160:48:22

an English team.

They dealt with it

very well. Grant Gilchrist, you can

0:48:220:48:31

see him fighting really hard to keep

hold of the ball. The break from

0:48:310:48:36

Peter Horne was good. It came from a

short pass from Gordon Reid and

0:48:360:48:40

that's exactly what we'll see.

England will attack so quickly.

0:48:400:48:46

Immediately the spotlight falls on

Greig Laidlaw. Eight from eight

0:48:500:48:55

kicks so far.

0:48:550:49:00

Gray it has the distance. That was

the only question. Scotland lead

0:49:060:49:11

three points to the good within the

first three minutes. An ideal start

0:49:110:49:14

for the home side.

A good two great

kick from Greig Laidlaw. Composed

0:49:140:49:23

start, some good decisions in

attack.

0:49:230:49:30

CHEERING

And Scotland have the ball. Their

0:51:060:51:10

defence stands firm and they have

the penalty. Better still for

0:51:100:51:13

Scotland.

0:51:130:51:18

Scotland.

Once or twice there, there

were just in danger of being

0:51:180:51:22

isolated. You only need to be a

couple of yards further advanced

0:51:220:51:26

than your supporting players.

Players are so quick down and up

0:51:260:51:30

onto the ball.

It's exactly what we

expected to see from Nathan Hughes.

0:51:300:51:37

One or two really early carries,

powerful carries. Interestingly,

0:51:370:51:44

Scotland are targeting that short

tackle. Very aware that they have to

0:51:440:51:50

slow England's possession.

0:51:500:51:54

Jonny Gray, sending Grant Gilchrist

alongside him.

0:52:350:52:43

CHEERING

Murrayfield is alive.

0:52:440:52:55

England have got this. Penalty to

England. England's defends matches

0:52:550:53:00

Scotland this time.

Superb work on

the floor by Chris Robshaw. Must be

0:53:000:53:08

very pleased with the way they've

managed to get around what is at

0:53:080:53:11

times a possibly narrow defence for

England.

It's interesting from a

0:53:110:53:20

line-out. When it falls to the

middle, Scotland still have the

0:53:200:53:21

ability to get round the outside

edge. Great work from Robshaw to win

0:53:210:53:29

the penalty.

Takes it three metres

beyond the line.

0:53:290:53:45

Just the faintest strains of Swing

Low Sweet Chariot.

0:53:460:54:00

Outvoted by Scotland, from an

England point of view. -- out

0:54:170:54:22

thought.

0:54:220:54:30

Short and line-out is the call.

0:54:350:54:37

Hartley to halfway. It slows for a

minute.

0:55:230:55:28

Just a little think from Care for

sending it down the line.

0:55:470:55:56

Watson bouncing off the challenge

from Farrell.

0:56:210:56:31

A different Scotland so far in the

opening ten minutes.

0:56:310:56:41

Advantage to England for the knock

on.

0:56:420:56:51

Very well directed, but Russell

scooped it up in one arm.

0:57:030:57:10

It is certainly pacey stuff so far.

Absolutely. It's interesting, really

0:57:160:57:21

intriguing. Two different styles on

show already. Scotland have passed

0:57:210:57:26

the ball off them and kept it

moving. England have gone almost

0:57:260:57:31

more direct. That means England

having to put more players into the

0:57:310:57:34

breakdown to win the ball. Scotland

have played on the edge but they've

0:57:340:57:37

saw little in the game at the moment

it almost looks as if the defence is

0:57:370:57:42

trying to force a mistake and

whoever is going to be quickest will

0:57:420:57:45

get a foothold in this game.

0:57:450:57:53

REFEREE:

Stay, stay, stay.

England

making a bit of ground again.

0:57:590:58:10

Grant Gilchrist being told to get

out of there. Can't escape notice

0:58:170:58:22

with a red scrum cap.

0:58:220:58:30

An opportunity now for England.

0:58:340:58:42

Penalty to England.

The first time

England managed to get some

0:58:510:59:01

momentum, they forced a penalty.

0:59:010:59:09

England want to play a steady game,

and this is Jonny May's pace. We

0:59:140:59:22

were talking earlier about pace.

Certainly the defensive line is back

0:59:220:59:27

about ten metres.

That's the first

time England have strong two or

0:59:270:59:31

three passes together to get to the

edge. Hamish Watson penalised there.

0:59:310:59:35

Owen Farrell and Hamish Watson have

had one or two coming togethers.

0:59:350:59:43

Tenacious, hard players. Kicking at

60% in this year's tournaments,

0:59:430:59:52

which is a little below his usual

high standard but he kicks from

0:59:520:59:57

Robert wide out.

0:59:570:59:59

Of course he can. Things level up at

Murrayfield. He is enjoying it.

1:00:131:00:21

Wagging his tail! He looked a bit

sad, I think he was a Scotland fan!

1:00:211:00:27

What a match so far. Three points

apiece, but barely pause for breath.

1:00:271:00:36

Nathan Hughes looked hesitant for a

moment.

1:00:431:00:45

Danny Care centred out, did not buy

too much ground.

Two or three

1:00:571:01:02

breakdowns snout that Nigel Owens

has asked the ball to be moved very

1:01:021:01:05

quickly. -- two or three breakdowns,

now.

1:01:051:01:16

He is through! Huw Jones had the try

amid the chaos. Huw Jones scoring

1:01:341:01:43

once more for Scotland, the first

try of the game.

England in panic

1:01:431:01:49

mode after that penalty. If you have

given away a penalty already, you

1:01:491:01:57

have dropped it straightaway.

Scotland managed to get there on the

1:01:571:02:04

back foot.

Nigel Owens makes a

tackle on Peter Horne, but that the

1:02:041:02:09

pressure Finn Russell is under from

Owen Farrell. He's still got the

1:02:091:02:12

grubber kick away. A ninth try for

Huw Jones for Scotland. It was a

1:02:121:02:18

little bit scruffy. A penalty

advantage. Sometimes in these

1:02:181:02:21

Calcutta Cup matches, it almost

typifies them, the frantic nature.

1:02:211:02:30

Good start for Scotland.

That is the

first try for Scotland against

1:02:301:02:35

England at Murrayfield Saint Simon

Danieli in 2004. -- since Simon

1:02:351:02:42

Danieli. Huw Jones cannot stop

scoring for Scotland at the moment.

1:02:421:02:47

Seven tries in his last eight

internationals. England try to come

1:02:471:02:52

again once more.

1:02:521:02:58

Laidlaw got the kick away, but

penalty to England. It is clear from

1:03:111:03:18

Nigel Owens.

That really is a dull

penalty. You have just scored, seven

1:03:181:03:28

points, it will probably give three

points back, totally unnecessary.

1:03:281:03:35

Any player in front of the ball can

stand there. Looking at Gilchrist,

1:03:351:03:39

he does not move very far. Maybe

Simon Berghan popped up a bit on his

1:03:391:03:44

side. It is a harsh penalty.

The

referee was starting to look at

1:03:441:03:52

this, they would know it was a

deliberate defensive ploy. It was an

1:03:521:03:56

obstruction point.

We did not see it

pulled up that often last year. This

1:03:561:04:02

time it was. Any movement in front

of the ball, you alert the referee.

1:04:021:04:10

Once more, over to Owen Farrell.

1:04:101:04:17

Similar kick, similar results.

England's move on to six points. --

1:04:261:04:34

England's move on.

A grubber kick under huge pressure.

1:04:341:04:41

Almost tried to disguise it with his

eyes. There was a fortunate bounce

1:04:411:04:45

from the advantage.

A good score for Scotland. Then in

1:04:451:04:50

Beits are doing the fielding at the

restarts. Hughes was able to give it

1:04:501:04:53

to Ford.

1:04:531:04:59

Play on, says the referee. The crowd

gasped, grown and jeer.

1:05:001:05:09

gasped, grown and jeer. -- gasp,

groan and jeer. What a wonderful

1:05:091:05:17

kick from Finn Russell. If you were

to judge it on the opening 18

1:05:171:05:21

minutes, it is a different Finn

Russell today.

1:05:211:05:25

He is a class player. Every game he

plays, hopefully he learns

1:05:251:05:29

something.

A hard kick on the move. A lot of

1:05:291:05:35

space to target. Itoje was committed

to that.

1:05:351:05:37

Scotland had the opportunity to

counterattack.

1:05:451:05:51

Taken down by Courtney Lawes for

England.

1:05:511:05:59

Advantage to England. Kicked away,

but they have a penalty.

1:06:101:06:18

Grant Gilchrist penalised.

1:06:181:06:23

REFEREE: Number four, taking the

maul down.

1:06:231:06:34

COMMENTATOR: The mauls have not been

aggressive.

England's mauls have

1:06:351:06:41

been poor. They have not been set up

or driven properly. The one Scotland

1:06:411:06:47

got together was driven very well

and quickly and resulted in the

1:06:471:06:50

first try.

1:06:501:06:52

Danny Care said behind the runners

to Lawes. -- said behind.

1:07:101:07:19

Danny Care complaining, the ball was

deep and taken hired by Farrell.

1:07:191:07:25

Seem more putting pace on it.

Entered by May.

1:07:571:08:05

Eredivisie flung it out, carried by

Berkeley past Itoje.

1:08:201:08:27

Berkeley past Itoje. -- Horne flung

it out.

1:08:281:08:36

it out.

A good tackle by Farrell.

Took the ball quickly.

1:08:361:08:46

Russell flung about are to Huw

Jones, who keeps it alive.

1:08:491:08:58

Watson did so well. Great power from

the winger. Berkeley eventually

1:08:581:09:04

scrums him. Nigel Owens says this is

fine. Scotland may have turned this

1:09:041:09:12

over. Hartley clinging on for dear

life.

1:09:121:09:14

REFEREE:

Scrum down.

A great whack from Huw Jones down

1:09:141:09:23

the wing.

England are kicking away a

lot of possession and inviting

1:09:231:09:30

Scotland to counterattack.

Look how hard he works to fight and

1:09:301:09:38

buy himself an extra second to

protect the ball.

1:09:381:09:46

On occasion I think players put in

the outer passes too early, but I

1:09:461:09:53

think that was the right choice at

the right time.

It was Jonny May

1:09:531:09:58

down the left-hand side, almost

hands in the air, but a really good

1:09:581:10:01

decision.

This is a loose kick from Danny

1:10:011:10:06

Care, this is a pass, almost drags

in Jonny May.

1:10:061:10:13

Watson does really well here.

A long bit of treatment to Dan Cole,

1:10:151:10:21

but he comes back now and is ready

to resume again.

1:10:211:10:28

Finn Russell has been impressive so

far. Scotland with a good few metres

1:10:291:10:38

more than England. There have not

been too many scrums so far. Mako

1:10:381:10:43

Vunipola down on one knee as well.

Fairly even on that data.

1:10:431:10:54

The first real pause we have had in

this game. You talk about the

1:10:541:10:59

fitness of the sites, Scotland pride

themselves on being as fit as any

1:10:591:11:04

but Eddie Jones talked about England

being 40% fitter than two years ago.

1:11:041:11:08

Let's see if that tells in the final

quarter.

1:11:081:11:12

England with a mighty weight

advantage.

1:11:231:11:25

REFEREE:

Crouch, bind, set!

Scotland look to secure the ball as

1:11:311:11:40

quickly as possible.

1:11:401:11:45

Scotland has not ball. -- Scotland's

ball.

1:11:471:11:59

Coming back for the Scotland scrum.

1:12:011:12:09

I think Huw Jones had almost lost it

before that.

The referee, I suppose

1:12:091:12:17

you get one shot.

It was interesting

how he gave the knock-on. Set piece

1:12:171:12:25

play from a reasonably stable scrum,

just targeting Batchelder by George

1:12:251:12:28

Ford. -- targeting that shoulder by

George Ford.

Scotland get away with

1:12:281:12:39

one. An opportunity for a very

similar position further infield.

1:12:391:12:45

Seymour is hiding behind Finn

Russell.

1:12:451:12:46

One area that Scotland were possibly

predicted to struggle and was the

1:12:571:13:01

front row, given the number of

absenteeism and injuries that they

1:13:011:13:06

have had. But they did Jim endlessly

well against France -- they did

1:13:061:13:10

tremendously well.

1:13:101:13:12

Simon Berghan, six foot four, but he

likes to get so low. He fears being

1:13:191:13:25

upended unbuckled. Very difficult to

keep the scrum up, then.

1:13:251:13:34

Simon Berghan is the heaviest man in

the Scotland side. He did not quite

1:14:071:14:10

know where he was, but he set it

back.

1:14:101:14:18

Scotland edging closer. Hartley

keeps Berghan Iturbe.

1:14:181:14:28

keeps Berghan Iturbe. -- keeps

Berghan at bay.

1:14:281:14:32

A little knock-on, England's

applause for their defence working

1:14:321:14:36

this time. They have the scrum.

It

was a change of tactic, Scotland

1:14:361:14:42

taking a direct route. Forcing the

knock-on. Nathan Hughes has been

1:14:421:14:46

really busy in his first game back.

It was a more direct route, closer

1:14:461:14:54

to the breakdown. England can cope

with that reasonably well, I think.

1:14:541:15:02

426 minutes, not too many handling

errors from either side. Conditions,

1:15:021:15:05

though.

Just one thing from the two scrum

1:15:051:15:11

attacks, they have attacked close to

the scrum. The second one was back

1:15:111:15:20

inside. I wonder if they think

Robshaw and Lawes RA little bit slow

1:15:201:15:24

off the back of the scrum?

They want

to drag players in so that the width

1:15:241:15:30

is there. If England have two people

dragged in, there are fewer numbers

1:15:301:15:39

to do that.

Keep away from the

midfield blitz.

Absolutely.

1:15:391:15:47

If you are just joining us, nearing

the half-hour mark, Scotland with

1:16:021:16:07

the one try of the game through Huw

Jones.

1:16:071:16:10

Penalty to England this time.

1:16:101:16:17

REFEREE:

All of you, far back, hinge

on and down.

1:16:181:16:23

That means bending from the waist

and simply collapsing backwards.

1:16:231:16:30

It gives Owen Farrell the chance to

clear for touch, and England's

1:16:301:16:33

line-out.

When you get your feet

level like that, as soon as you go

1:16:331:16:42

below parallel there is no way you

can hold a scrum up.

1:16:421:16:51

Looking for the maul to creep

forward again.

1:17:011:17:09

Mike Brown gave it to Watson. A

tough pass for a winner to try to

1:17:121:17:19

cope with.

1:17:191:17:25

cope with. -- a Wenger.

I think you

could say it is not the best pass in

1:17:251:17:28

the world.

England have kicked quite

often. There is the space to attack.

1:17:281:17:34

Whether it was dislodged by Peter

Horne's tackle, it was a poor pass.

1:17:341:17:43

England should keep the ball in

hand.

1:17:451:17:56

Cries of upside around the pitch.

Vunipola try to feed it to Hartley.

1:18:111:18:17

-- cries of offside around the

pitch.

1:18:171:18:22

Finn Russell in for the

interception. It could have caught

1:18:221:18:26

the ball, says Nigel Owens. Not a

deliberate knock-on. England will

1:18:261:18:31

have the scrum.

Russell read it well. But he would

1:18:311:18:41

be frustrated he did not take that.

The modern idiom is that if you dug

1:18:411:18:52

it up, you have a chance to catch

it. From an England point of view,

1:18:521:19:01

this is the first chance they have

had in almost the whole half so far.

1:19:011:19:07

The rest of the game has been played

at pace. From an England point of

1:19:071:19:16

view, before half-time they will

want to have a period of ten minutes

1:19:161:19:20

where they play coherent rugby.

All of the players have been

1:19:201:19:27

burrowing away in the ear of Nigel

Owens.

1:19:271:19:29

Ready to scrum again.

REFEREE:

Lines, sets...

1:19:321:19:40

They all need to be told to shut up.

A solid scrum this time. Kerr feeds

1:19:401:19:53

his line -- Care feeds his line and

Ford does well. Penalty to Scotland

1:19:531:19:58

as John Barclay gets applause from

his team-mates.

Great work by

1:19:581:20:06

Berkeley.

1:20:061:20:15

Born in all sorts of trouble, trying

to set it back for Scotland. -- pawn

1:20:211:20:27

in all sorts of trouble.

1:20:271:20:35

in all sorts of trouble. -- Horne.

Huw Jones goes himself. Jonny May

1:20:361:20:38

gets to him, Scotland Sydney into

the England 22. Ryan Wilson feeds

1:20:381:20:44

on. Barclays looks for support.

McInally through the middle. Farrell

1:20:441:20:52

gets him down. Scotland within

metres of the line. Maitland for the

1:20:521:21:00

try. One end of the pitch to the

other. Maitland scores for Scotland.

1:21:001:21:06

What a try. Where did it come from?

1:21:061:21:15

So nearly an interception. They

celebrate. Nigel Owens is just

1:21:191:21:24

asking a question.

1:21:241:21:26

So any reason why they cannot award

the try. So much to talk about.

1:21:381:21:44

Before the ball got to Huw Jones was

so nearly intercepted by England. We

1:21:441:21:49

look to the screens. Any reason a

try cannot be awarded? TMO Simon

1:21:491:21:56

McDowell. Watson coming in,

Maitland...

A try without a doubt.

1:21:561:22:07

They have run the better lines, made

the better decisions. They fully

1:22:141:22:18

deserved the lead.

Playing such a

quality team, you have to take a

1:22:181:22:24

risk. A long pass, teasing the

defence. You Jones does wonderfully

1:22:241:22:29

well. -- Huw Jones. The quick ball

is moved out, Russell's floating

1:22:291:22:42

pass over the top. That is an

outstanding try for Scotland.

1:22:421:22:50

The sounds you can hear our Finn

Russell's critics falling silent

1:22:511:22:56

around the country. Maitland and

Jones, the two who scored against

1:22:561:23:02

France, have scored. A difficult

conversion for Greig Laidlaw.

1:23:021:23:04

Trying to bring it down, and it

nearly does, but falls short in any

1:23:191:23:23

case. Scotland's lead is nine

points.

1:23:231:23:31

points.

Maitland has to keep his

width to get on the outside.

1:23:311:23:36

Scotland playing some attacking

rugby, getting their reward.

1:23:361:23:46

Again, Ryan Wilson fields on top of

Jonny May.

1:23:461:23:58

Laidlaw gets the kick away. Brown

comes forward.

1:24:011:24:10

Deep to Mike Brown. Some muscle up

to the ten metre line.

1:24:251:24:34

England are making good ground

coming here.

1:24:551:25:03

It urged charging headlong into the

22.

1:25:041:25:14

22. -- Itoje charging. Penalty to

Scotland.

1:25:141:25:17

Nigel Owens penalising England. They

will usually give a metre around the

1:25:261:25:33

ball for you to take a mannered.

Anything outside that, the referees

1:25:331:25:39

deem it to be excessive -- a metre

around the ball to take a man out.

1:25:391:25:46

They are being stricter beyond the

ball.

1:25:461:25:54

A frustrating penalty from England.

It is a good phase, nine phases of

1:25:571:26:02

play. It is frustrating for the

coaches.

Taken down by Wilson.

1:26:021:26:10

Five minutes remain in this first

half.

1:26:101:26:18

Nothing doing.

1:26:181:26:20

I said it earlier, these moles seem

quite passive. It is almost as if

1:26:301:26:36

there is a risk they will have to

step away. There is not the

1:26:361:26:42

dynamism. -- I said it earlier,

these mauls seem quite passive.

1:26:421:26:51

these mauls seem quite passive.

The

efforts have not been coordinated.

1:26:511:26:54

They are half-hearted. You set

yourself out to do that, you had to

1:26:541:26:58

commit to do it properly.

It has

been good defence by England to not

1:26:581:27:03

let Scotland get down.

A real

opportunity now. Four minutes to go.

1:27:031:27:15

England with the attacking position.

1:27:151:27:17

England try and get the secondary

screens. It is not going anywhere.

1:27:231:27:32

Just an injection of pace from a

standing start, almost.

1:27:351:27:39

Scotland get the penalty again.

Hughes and Ryan

1:27:461:27:58

Hughes and Ryan Wilson too untoward

things to each other. -- to untoward

1:27:581:28:03

things.

1:28:031:28:03

It is not effective enough.

1:28:101:28:17

REFEREE:

What is the problem? If you

are not sure, let's get on with the

1:28:201:28:26

game, OK?

Well, they knew what it was

1:28:261:28:33

beforehand. Oh, now, then. Contact

with the eye area, that is. Not a

1:28:331:28:40

gouge, but...

1:28:401:28:46

Barclays has done well. -- Barclay

has.

1:28:471:28:58

has.

Not accurate enough, not enough

men in.

1:29:021:29:13

Huw Jones through again. Scuttling

into the 22. What a score! Huw

1:29:151:29:24

Jones, he has done it again.

Scotland have three tries, and it is

1:29:241:29:30

that man once more.

1:29:301:29:36

that man once more.

I have been at

Murrayfield a long time ago when

1:29:361:29:38

this tidal wave of emotion and

sentiments, great play by Scotland.

1:29:381:29:46

It turns against you, it is a

horrible feeling. England are

1:29:461:29:50

staring down the barrel of defeat.

He cannot get a space between Hughes

1:29:501:29:57

and Farrell.

1:29:571:30:02

and Farrell.

It is not only the

line, it is the speed and the power.

1:30:041:30:09

Running into space. So many players

run into the man, it is running into

1:30:091:30:13

space

1:30:131:30:14

run into the man, it is running into

space. He was over 22 and still had

1:30:141:30:19

a lot to do with two defenders

coming over. The desire, the drive,

1:30:191:30:24

the leg strength. Laidlaw has the

extras. Just over a minute remaining

1:30:241:30:29

in the first half at Murrayfield,

Scotland 22, six.

I think Hughes

1:30:291:30:35

breaks it inside. At the last minute

he thinks he will just go right down

1:30:351:30:43

the middle.

1:30:431:30:47

What a player he has become for

Scotland and what a game he's having

1:30:471:30:51

here. One minute remaining and the

restart so important for England to

1:30:511:30:56

try and get something before

half-time. A little bit shorter,

1:30:561:31:00

this restart, but Wilson again takes

and Scotland may be happy to head to

1:31:001:31:06

the shareds.

1:31:061:31:11

the shareds. -- sheds.

1:31:111:31:18

The clock ticks toward 40. The fans

of Scotland looking to carry it in a

1:31:191:31:31

couple of phases.

1:31:311:31:33

Laidlaw taking all the time in the

world. Use it, says Nigel Owens. As

1:31:471:31:52

good a half from Scotland as you'll

see. England being tested as never

1:31:521:31:59

before in this championship. What a

half at Murrayfield and Scotland,

1:31:591:32:03

from 3-0 22-6.

They're not flopping,

Scotland.

1:32:031:32:17

from 3-0 22-6.

They're not flopping,

Scotland. England have got a lot of

1:32:191:32:20

problems at half-time.

It's

half-time at Murrayfield.

1:32:201:32:24

STUDIO: This is the first half-time

team talk that Eddie Jones has

1:32:271:32:32

STUDIO: This is the first half-time

team talk that Eddie Jones has had

1:32:321:32:32

to give in a situation like this.

It'll be a fascinating test of his

1:32:321:32:36

coaching skills. Huw Jones is the

Harry Kane of rugby. The blistering

1:32:361:32:45

acceleration that took in between

Brown and Watson to give Scotland a

1:32:451:32:49

very convincing lead. Are you

sensing 50 shades of 1990?

What a 40

1:32:491:32:54

minutes

1:32:541:32:54

sensing 50 shades of 1990?

What a 40

minutes by Scotland!

1:32:541:32:55

sensing 50 shades of 1990?

What a 40

minutes by Scotland! They set the

1:32:551:32:59

foundation, they came out, played

really well. Real intent, real

1:32:591:33:04

ambition, but accuracy in that first

five or ten minutes. Look at the

1:33:041:33:08

metres made by Scotland. 327. That

has been as good a 40 minutes as an

1:33:081:33:15

Scotland dabbles in the 6 Nations

and a

1:33:151:33:17

Scotland dabbles in the 6 Nations

and a long-time.

Martin, does there

1:33:171:33:18

seem a palpable difference in

intensity and in tension between the

1:33:181:33:22

two sides, and how?

Absolutely and I

said at the start if you take this

1:33:221:33:30

game for granted and don't wrestle

the initiative, you're in trouble.

1:33:301:33:32

Scotland attacked with a variation,

they went wide, they wrestled the

1:33:321:33:37

initiative and got what they got.

England had the ball, tried a couple

1:33:371:33:42

of balls and didn't get anywhere.

England like to play at their own

1:33:421:33:51

pace, dominate position. Give it to

the back three. Scotland have forced

1:33:511:33:57

them to play quicker when they've

got the ball and they're not liking

1:33:571:34:00

it. When they do get the odd bit of

momentum, Berkeley's coming in and

1:34:001:34:06

winning the ball.

A big question you

ask is how physical and how

1:34:061:34:10

aggressive can you be while

maintaining your discipline and

1:34:101:34:13

being accurate? That's what Scotland

are doing and they didn't do at the

1:34:131:34:17

start of the championship. They are

incredibly physical, playing with

1:34:171:34:21

real intent, but they're really

accurate. They're playing rugby, not

1:34:211:34:24

just putting up the jumper and

taking in without physically,

1:34:241:34:27

they're playing fantastic rugby.

When you talk about intensity, I

1:34:271:34:31

don't think we've ever seen is that

if we have, very rarely. A scuffle

1:34:311:34:34

between the players before

1:34:341:34:35

if we have, very rarely. A scuffle

between the players before the match

1:34:351:34:36

began. We've highlighted here... I

think Owen Farrell is in the middle

1:34:361:34:41

of this and perhaps Ryan Wilson. I

don't know. Where is Pep Guardiola?

1:34:411:34:47

England's highlights so far!

We did

actually consult the man who knows

1:34:471:34:52

all about these things, Wayne

Barnes, can you be

1:34:521:34:54

all about these things, Wayne

Barnes, can you be sent off or doing

1:34:541:34:57

something before a game begins? You

can't because the referee is only

1:34:571:35:01

the official once the game kicks

off. You can do almost anything you

1:35:011:35:05

want before the game starts!

If I'd

known!

So, Huw Jones first of all. I

1:35:051:35:13

think five matches in a row he's

scored a try in and he's just on

1:35:131:35:16

fire stop --

you look at the ball

that Scotland had here. They get

1:35:161:35:25

going forward and they released the

1:35:251:35:26

that Scotland had here. They get

going forward and they released the

1:35:261:35:26

ball early. They don't wait until

they lose momentum and England

1:35:261:35:31

regrouped to go slow. They go early

and gives them the front foot.

You

1:35:311:35:35

think England have it fairly well

Marshall. But a ricochet. And we

1:35:351:35:41

talked about pace at the beginning

of the game. If Huw Jones doesn't

1:35:411:35:44

have the pace to get that, it's no

try and England will scramble and

1:35:441:35:48

cover. Because it is pace, it scares

the difference, originally --

1:35:481:35:54

ricochet.

That other games played

and if it gets you away, it might

1:35:541:35:58

bounce. A beautiful way to kick by

Finn Russell. He bought a ticket and

1:35:581:36:03

Huw Jones went and got it and

scored.

Its kind in penalty

1:36:031:36:08

advantage in that situation. It can

be a 50-50 shot.

Talk about 50-50

1:36:081:36:18

shot, this path that leads to

scoring the corner, this is kind of

1:36:181:36:21

a 30-70 past, isn't it?

One that

hasn't been going well for Finn

1:36:211:36:27

Russell and the first two games but

this time...

Even in the last two

1:36:271:36:33

games, I think he's been brilliant

in this first 40 minutes. He was

1:36:331:36:38

wired into what Jeremy said before

the game. It looked from where I was

1:36:381:36:41

sitting that that was a dubious past

but actually it sailed over Joseph.

1:36:411:36:44

It was a very good at and Huw Jones,

England scrambled the defence pretty

1:36:441:36:51

well and Scotland didn't panic. A

penalty advantage, and Stuart

1:36:511:36:59

McAnally has had a great 40 minutes.

Good decisions, good decision. He

1:36:591:37:06

finishes it with another great pass.

How much has been written and said

1:37:061:37:12

about him and he's actually gone

further. He's playing more rugby,

1:37:121:37:16

fleeing from deeper again. Fair play

to him.

He's playing how Eddie Jones

1:37:161:37:20

said he would top yellow Gregor

Townsend said he would play and not

1:37:201:37:28

going into his shell. He's had a

tremendous 40 minutes. If we show

1:37:281:37:34

the second Huw Jones try, it's a

fantastic acceleration. The kind of

1:37:341:37:37

try that you said you would have

scored.

Huw Jones got a brilliant

1:37:371:37:43

line against France and this is

similar but in midfield. With pace,

1:37:431:37:48

again. Hugh John Still macro has

seen this before the ball came. He

1:37:481:37:52

is already cutting his line as they

are bringing in that ball. The

1:37:521:37:58

defence has gone, where's it going?

I think it's Nathan Hughes there.

1:37:581:38:01

He's just coming back, hasn't

reacted quickly enough with Farrell

1:38:011:38:07

and the combination hasn't worked.

The momentum took him over.

That

1:38:071:38:15

line-out came off John Barclay and

if you remember against Wales he

1:38:151:38:21

gave away two penalties poaching

just after half-time. Getting that

1:38:211:38:24

line-out, that field position from

that penalty was massive.

Nathan

1:38:241:38:29

Hughes just got drawn in, his eyes

got drawn in. Back in that position,

1:38:291:38:33

he scanned a bit better, not being

dragged in. That gave the space the

1:38:331:38:38

Huw Jones but the pace and the

power, it was a beautiful

1:38:381:38:41

combination. My goodness, does that

guy know where the try line is.

1:38:411:38:46

Would you criticise Brown or Watson?

You were saying he should have made

1:38:461:38:50

the tackle because it was coming

straight on, Mike, but Anthony

1:38:501:38:54

should have gone lower.

I can as to

this question because no one else

1:38:541:39:00

has had the experience. We've been

an international coach. We've been

1:39:001:39:03

in this situation and had to give

half-time talks, what does Eddie

1:39:031:39:07

Jones say?

He's got the easier talk

because you been so bad, been

1:39:071:39:12

outplayed, they've been more urgent

and aggressive than you. It's an

1:39:121:39:16

easy solution, you have to go out

and get into this game otherwise

1:39:161:39:21

nothing tactically is important. If

you're going to get beaten like

1:39:211:39:23

they're getting beaten. For me,

Gregor has in a way that the more

1:39:231:39:27

difficult talk. What are they going

to do with this main points at

1:39:271:39:32

half-time? There wouldn't have had

that conversation. They have to come

1:39:321:39:35

out and keep doing what they're

doing which isn't always as easy as

1:39:351:39:38

it sounds. You'll say to England,

you're getting smashed in every

1:39:381:39:41

possible way. They've got the

initiative, they're more physical,

1:39:411:39:46

faster, everything. You have to book

your ideas up right now or it's

1:39:461:39:48

going to be very uncomfortable.

Does

Finn Russell become more

1:39:481:39:54

conservative in the second half or

keep going?

He wants to play as Finn

1:39:541:40:00

Russell has played. I wrote him off

before the game and thought he'd get

1:40:001:40:02

worse but he's just been

unbelievable. To that, you gave two

1:40:021:40:08

give great credit because this is a

massive pressure environment,

1:40:081:40:12

international rugby. He knew if he

had one more poor game, he was

1:40:121:40:15

unlikely to be picked again. Gregor

has had confidence in him and he's

1:40:151:40:18

gone out and proven its.

He's not

been perfect. He passed to Stuart

1:40:181:40:23

Hogg. Whoever does play the perfect

game, but he's shown the resilience

1:40:231:40:28

and mental strength to go back to

his basics of kicking. This is the

1:40:281:40:32

attacking and he's always got that.

You always want to show it. What

1:40:321:40:35

he's done better than two weeks ago

is kicking in general, it's been a

1:40:351:40:41

lot better, as has his game

management. He always was to get on

1:40:411:40:44

the ball.

Some of his passes that

have gone awry in that first game

1:40:441:40:48

against Wales, they did. This game,

they are sticking and they're

1:40:481:40:52

hitting the mark. The players are

reading what he's trying to do and

1:40:521:40:55

he's anticipating that and being in

the right place.

I think Greig

1:40:551:40:59

Laidlaw can be the guy who puts the

sensible hat on and play the

1:40:591:41:04

percentages are bit for Scotland in

the second half. Finn Russell can

1:41:041:41:08

keep playing.

We talk about

intensity. We have a counter ruck

1:41:081:41:16

from the Scottish back. Around the

breakdown, there's been so much more

1:41:161:41:20

venom about Scotland and England.

We

thought it was a big moment. Anthony

1:41:201:41:25

does really well. But England just

knock off at the ruck. They have

1:41:251:41:31

their heads turned back. The number

four turns his head back and

1:41:311:41:36

Scotland pile in and gets to

turnover. No scorer comes from this

1:41:361:41:40

but it is a really big psychological

moment.

It almost sums up the game.

1:41:401:41:44

Watson's done really well and

England say, we've won this ball.

1:41:441:41:50

Then smash, you're back on your

backside and ball is turned over.

1:41:501:41:53

You can't do that.

Joe Launchbury is

a fantastic player. He's looking for

1:41:531:41:59

tricks, looking for anything that

comes at him. It's just a bit of a

1:41:591:42:03

lack of intent in England's players.

To get that intense back to the

1:42:031:42:08

England side, is that a change of

personnel earlier than planned?

I

1:42:081:42:10

think it's one of those where the

forwards would come together now and

1:42:101:42:15

you say, all right, we've have that

before, it's been not great, it's

1:42:151:42:20

been terrible. We're going to turn

it around now. The first 15 minutes

1:42:201:42:23

are vital for me. England squad

burst, England scored second and

1:42:231:42:27

suddenly everyone will get nervous

in the stadium. If Scotland squad

1:42:271:42:31

burst...

England like to plot their

way, whereas Scotland have that

1:42:311:42:38

ability with Finn Russell to put the

past in and away some unlike Hugh

1:42:381:42:45

Hogg -- Huw Jones goes, Stuart Hogg.

They have to change that. Unless

1:42:451:42:49

they believe they can sport three

tries just by playing the way they

1:42:491:42:53

are at the moment which doesn't look

possible.

England do have good

1:42:531:42:58

impact. Ben Te'o will bring big

physical presence. Jamie George. I

1:42:581:43:05

think England have a good bench.

They can play, they can pick up the

1:43:051:43:09

pace with the bench, certainly.

Second-half a couple of moments

away. Also this weekend, the third

STUDIO: Earlier on today in Dublin,

1:45:101:45:16

Ireland narrowly beat Wales. The

squad looks more emphatic than it

1:45:161:45:20

actually was. Wales were going for a

winning score in the last few

1:45:201:45:24

moments and then this happened,

which gave Ireland the bonus point

1:45:241:45:27

try and also means their grandstand

ambitions are still alive and well.

1:45:271:45:37

Ireland and Scotland next time

around. That promises to be a

1:45:401:45:43

fascinating game. From the Scottish

perspective, we must say as someone

1:45:431:45:47

has been part of the Berdych at the

BBC on radio and TV for half a

1:45:471:45:51

century and also a former

international himself, Ian

1:45:511:45:53

Robertson. He has announced his

retirement. His last commentary will

1:45:531:45:58

be England against Australia on

radio 5 Live in November. A special

1:45:581:46:02

presentation for him. Ian has passed

into the annals of commentating

1:46:021:46:07

history for 35 seconds to go, Jonny

Wilkinson dropped the cup glory! And

1:46:071:46:13

incomparable figure and he will be

sadly missed when he finally hangs

1:46:131:46:20

up his microphone at the end of the

year. England are out will stop what

1:46:201:46:24

did Gregor Townsend say?

That might

be one of his easiest team talks

1:46:241:46:28

ever. Just keep doing exactly as you

are doing. There's not one aspect of

1:46:281:46:32

the game you want to change. It

wasn't perfect. I thought at times

1:46:321:46:36

they got into the 22 and made a

couple of mistakes but you would

1:46:361:46:39

have thought they'd go into the 22

six up so exactly the same, go in

1:46:391:46:44

there, make a statement and get the

crowd on their feet and the second

1:46:441:46:47

half.

Martin, if England are to win,

what has to happen?

They have to be

1:46:471:46:52

more urgent, more aggressive. And

accurate, as well. You can't lose

1:46:521:46:57

the battle once they've lost it all

over the field and expect to do

1:46:571:47:00

anything.

It was an intriguing and a

fascinating and compelling first 40

1:47:001:47:05

minutes. When you look at the

scoreboard, its 16 points to the

1:47:051:47:08

good for Scotland. What will it be

in another 40 minutes? Let's go to

1:47:081:47:14

our commentary team.

COMMENTATOR: Night falls and it only

1:47:141:47:21

adds to the sense of occasion.

Scotland try to secure their first

1:47:211:47:25

win over the old enemy in ten years

will stop Scotland have to try to

1:47:251:47:31

maintain that momentum but this will

be a different England, I'm sure, in

1:47:311:47:34

this second half. Ryan Wilson fields

again. Can England find that

1:47:341:47:40

intensity that was lacking in the

first half? And will Scotland adopt

1:47:401:47:46

the same approach? Will they retreat

a little bit to and more cautious

1:47:461:47:51

game? Laidlaw clears.

1:47:511:47:59

England looking for that quick start

Martin Johnson was talking about at

1:48:001:48:06

half-time. The first five minutes in

the second half are so important.

1:48:061:48:15

Down the blindside they go.

1:48:161:48:27

England making ground now.

1:48:361:48:44

Scotland play on. Play the game,

Nigel Owens cries.

1:49:031:49:13

Jonny May can't quite get there.

Scotland scrabbling their defence.

1:49:251:49:35

England are losing the battle on the

floor at the moment. Scotland is

1:49:371:49:41

still in the danger area, though, as

McInally sets it back.

1:49:411:49:52

A breather for Laidlaw.

1:49:521:50:00

Laidlaw just get a kick away.

England will take stock.

A more

1:50:051:50:14

intense start, the second half, by

England than the whole of the first

1:50:141:50:19

half, but yet again their accuracy

at the breakdown is letting them

1:50:191:50:22

down. Scotland are not necessarily

out fighting them but technically

1:50:221:50:28

are out doing them.

The decision

went to and when not to compete for

1:50:281:50:33

the ball. We spoke about Finn

Russell at half-time. His attack and

1:50:331:50:39

defence of Jonny May was almost over

the line.

1:50:391:50:41

England come again at pace and there

is the try for England. Under the

1:50:441:50:52

post he goes and England have that

lightning quick start to the second

1:50:521:50:55

half.

I did pose the question, let's

see what England are made of. That

1:50:551:51:03

is a good response to come out. Take

the game to Scotland.

You know all

1:51:031:51:10

about this guy's response, Owen

Farrell. A set piece move to come

1:51:101:51:15

back on the short side. Grant

Gilchrist gets a little bit narrow

1:51:151:51:19

but just like Huw Jones in the first

half, Owen Farrell runs at the

1:51:191:51:24

space.

Scotland should be

disappointed. They gave two extra

1:51:241:51:29

defenders.

1:51:291:51:34

defenders.

He runs it so well,

drives that steam forward, Owen

1:51:351:51:37

Farrell. A set piece move coming

back down the short side and the

1:51:371:51:42

first point of the second half goes

to England.

A very different feel as

1:51:421:51:49

Scotland tried to regain the memento

of the first half.

1:51:491:51:57

England will have some confidence

seeping back into them now.

1:51:571:52:08

Wilson takes the hit from Watson as

Lawes creeps over.

1:52:311:52:45

Hogg judged it well and it bounced

into touch. His last kick was maybe

1:52:581:53:05

not as well measured but he's found

it here.

1:53:051:53:13

it here.

They've just conceded a

try, the right tactical decision to

1:53:141:53:20

make.

It interesting here because

Scotland wanting to play the game at

1:53:201:53:24

tempo and pace and get going and

includes taking a moment, as they

1:53:241:53:27

should, to drag to play a different

type of game. Beautifully judged

1:53:271:53:32

kick from Hogg. England's line-out.

1:53:321:53:43

Safely taken and Scotland deciding

not to engage at all.

1:53:431:53:52

Oh, interception! Butt, but, but...

Says Nigel Owens. The southern side

1:54:111:54:19

of the ground celebrates. Penalty to

Scotland.

1:54:191:54:27

REFEREE:

Too slow, slow ball.

Yeller

macro I'd like to see that again. If

1:54:271:54:37

anything it was not clear, but he's

off his feet.

1:54:371:54:49

Nigel Owens didn't call it at the

time.

1:54:551:55:03

time.

That's a huge decision.

He was

off his feet if he stays up, not a

1:55:031:55:13

problem.

19.5 stone. Dylan Hartley

pleads the case for England. He felt

1:55:131:55:27

it was a fair contest. It's close,

very close call and a chance for

1:55:271:55:33

Scotland and for Stuart Hogg from

distance.

1:55:331:55:40

distance.

Skewed to the right. Just

beyond the range of Greig Laidlaw,

1:55:401:55:47

certainly beyond the threshold.

Stuart Hogg coming in.

He'll be

1:55:471:55:53

disappointed with that, he does have

the range. He was in a good

1:55:531:55:59

position. We play on.

A restart from

the 22.

1:55:591:56:13

the 22. England certainly with

momentum at the start of the second

1:56:131:56:15

half.

1:56:151:56:25

Seymour did well to stay in field

there. Still Scotland's ball.

1:56:391:56:51

Scotland going deep here.

1:57:061:57:08

Again, well measured kick, but

England's line-out.

Scotland are

1:57:151:57:23

running out of space so rather than

kick it long, are reasonably easy

1:57:231:57:28

pick-up for England, they decided to

drop it in and apply the pressure.

1:57:281:57:37

Interesting conundrum for Scotland.

Now the game gets a little tighter,

1:57:371:57:48

what do they do? Do they continue to

take those chances?

1:57:481:57:56

Well judged indeed.

1:58:011:58:08

Tommy Seymour crashes on. Advantage

to Scotland.

1:58:131:58:25

Up, he just had to give it! There

with three blue shirts outside. They

1:58:291:58:35

will come back for that penalty, but

that was the overlap to end all

1:58:351:58:40

overlaps.

REFEREE:

12 right, dancing in front

1:58:401:58:45

of the kick.

We don't know what

consequences that might have at the

1:58:451:58:50

end of the game. --

advancing.

It's

a very simple pass. As soon as Mike

1:58:501:59:03

Brown engages, he backs off and

backs off and then the attacker

1:59:031:59:10

still wants to try to commit the

defender but Mike Brown plays a

1:59:101:59:13

little game, backs off and catches

Peter Horne out. It had to go

1:59:131:59:18

earlier.

REFEREE:

He can advance once he

1:59:181:59:22

passes the ball.

Long chat between

Nigel Owens and Owen Farrell. It's a

1:59:221:59:31

penalty to Scotland about the

halfway line. Horne knows that was

1:59:311:59:35

costly. This is the penalty.

1:59:351:59:44

I think it was from the kick because

Owen Farrell was in front of the

1:59:441:59:49

kicker and had to make an attempt to

run back before he comes forward.

1:59:491:59:57

England making replacements now.

1:59:572:00:04

Scotland is going to have another

pop. Is Laidlaw fancy giving his

2:00:042:00:08

full attention?

2:00:082:00:14

You just wonder how... How important

that might be in the grand scheme of

2:00:142:00:24

things.

2:00:242:00:33

No shot at goal. Scotland going for

the corner through Hogg. England

2:00:332:00:40

trying to get their momentum going

again in the second half. England

2:00:402:00:44

have certainly been brighter after

the break.

2:00:442:00:52

Sam Underhill has to weight as

Berkeley takes it down for Scotland.

2:00:532:01:00

-- as Barclay takes it down.

Scotland tried a little move which

2:01:002:01:11

did not quite work, but it is still

a fair ball on the floor and

2:01:112:01:17

Scotland still have it.

2:01:172:01:19

Robshaw was told to leave.

2:01:242:01:32

Allens says use it. -- Owens says.

Scotland going deep. They have

2:02:002:02:16

possession but they are heading

backwards.

2:02:162:02:22

England's defence up so, so quickly.

A wonderful tackle by Lawes. Chip

2:02:222:02:29

and chase. Can Anthony Watson

gather? Farrell again. Another try

2:02:292:02:34

for England. Time out, says Nigel

Owens.

2:02:342:02:43

Owens.

We will have to listen.

REFEREE:

I need to check if that was

2:02:432:02:50

back, or was it knocked on in the

tackle by white?

2:02:502:02:59

tackle by white?

We are going to

review.

2:02:592:03:00

REFEREE:

Time-out.

2:03:002:03:10

It wasn't Maro Itoje, it was

Courtney Lawes. What a head. --

2:03:102:03:17

hits.

2:03:172:03:27

TMO:

knocked on by white.

REFEREE:

No try.

COMMENTATOR: Krul

2:03:272:03:36

for England, widely celebrated by

the Scottish fans. It was a

2:03:362:03:38

wonderful try by Courtney Lawes.

2:03:382:03:47

wonderful try by Courtney Lawes. --

cruel for England. Scotland are

2:03:472:03:50

strong. That is a huge moment.

A

great shame for Courtney Lawes. I

2:03:502:03:54

don't think he would have even known

that he had touched him.

It is the

2:03:542:04:02

line speed, the aggressive tackling

that we have come to see from

2:04:022:04:05

England.

2:04:052:04:10

England. Unfortunate for them. A big

swing in the momentum.

2:04:122:04:19

Those two moments, the Horne, Watson

and others overlapping and that

2:04:192:04:21

decision.

I thought the Care

interception was more contentious. I

2:04:212:04:29

do not think that was contentious at

all.

2:04:292:04:33

Sam and to fill -- Sam Underhill is

on. Robshaw going to aides,

2:04:332:04:43

Underhill on the flag. Hughes is

perhaps lacking a bit of match

2:04:432:04:46

fitness after his long injury

lay-off.

2:04:462:04:49

Jonny Gray feeds onto Reid.

England's defence flies up.

2:04:592:05:10

Scotland are struggling to get over

the gain line at the moment.

2:05:162:05:23

That white line fires up, Barclay

takes it in.

2:05:232:05:34

Russell just delays that pass. Hug

overlapping Maitland. Maitland taken

2:05:402:05:48

down. A great tackle by Brown.

People make Lent was in touch,

2:05:482:05:54

Laidlaw scooped it up again. -- it

looked like Maitland was in touch.

2:05:542:06:07

For a moment it looked like he was

beaten, it was a great tackle.

Mike

2:06:072:06:16

Brown, that is a responsibility as a

full-back, you have to take the last

2:06:162:06:19

man.

2:06:192:06:26

man.

A zipped distribution pass from

Finn Russell. A full stretch by Mike

2:06:262:06:33

Brown. Excellent tackle.

It will be

a line-out, changes have been made.

2:06:332:06:39

Dylan Hartley has been replaced by

Jamie George. There he is. And Jack

2:06:392:06:44

Nowell is on the wing.

2:06:442:06:51

Mike Brown is off, Anthony Watson

has shifted to full-back and Jack

2:06:512:06:55

Nowell on the wing. A vital final

act, and Scotland are making changes

2:06:552:07:03

as well. Changes at loosehead prop.

Jamie Batty is coming on for Gordon

2:07:032:07:11

Reid.

2:07:112:07:15

-- Jamie Bhatti is coming on.

Gilchrist is on as well.

2:07:282:07:39

England look for a good exit through

the long Good of Johnny Carr.

2:07:392:07:48

the long Good of Johnny Carr. --

Danny Care.

2:07:502:07:57

Penalty to England. The work done by

Sam Underhill. The first real act

2:08:082:08:18

for him.

He does well. Not the

quickest almost dextrous openside,

2:08:182:08:28

but he gets over the ball well.

Horne reacted well. Underhill just

2:08:282:08:37

on, it is almost what Barclay has

been doing. It is a change in shape.

2:08:372:08:43

Nathan Hughes is a big ball-carrier.

England's line-out worked well

2:08:432:08:55

again.

George was picked up and driven out

2:08:552:09:01

by his opposite number, McInally.

2:09:012:09:03

Bhatti throwing himself on that ball

to secured for Scotland. Scotland

2:09:162:09:24

with a knock-on advantage, but

kicked away. Danny Care bring think

2:09:242:09:31

forward once more. Good work by the

scrum-half. -- Danny Care brings

2:09:312:09:36

England forward once more. Scotland

have the line-out.

It is a strange

2:09:362:09:44

running support line.

REFEREE:

I was paying advantage from

2:09:442:09:52

knock-on. You did interfere.

Be careful.

It is getting more tense

2:09:522:09:58

in the second-half, a different of

game. -- different type of game.

2:09:582:10:09

Scotland have the advantage, taken

earlier. A penalty coming for them.

2:10:092:10:16

Leave it...

Oh, friends.

2:10:162:10:28

REFEREE:

Do you have a number for

me? Number four? Timing, early in

2:10:282:10:37

the air.

Joe Launchbury is being singled out

2:10:372:10:38

for his timing of his challenge.

Scotland with a chance through Hogg

2:10:382:10:45

again to kick for touch.

2:10:452:10:47

Heading towards the final quarter of

this match, nine points in it. This

2:10:522:10:56

is the infringement.

2:10:562:11:03

is the infringement.

I thought that

was a soft penalty against Lawes and

2:11:032:11:07

Scotland were fortunate to get it. A

good opportunity for Scotland, as

2:11:072:11:13

you say, to try to take control of

this segment of the game. Deep in

2:11:132:11:17

enemy territory.

2:11:172:11:22

Close quarters stuff, now.

2:11:592:12:02

Ford comes into play strong half. --

scrum-half. Scotland are trying to

2:12:112:12:17

keep England back in their 22.

REFEREE:

Stay in, lads.

2:12:172:12:25

Care sends them into touch.

That was

a wonderful pick-up from Danny Care.

2:12:252:12:32

The English defence is strong in the

second half. It is coming forward.

2:12:322:12:40

No missed tackle. Forces a grubber

kick through.

2:12:402:12:48

We have not seen any magic from Hogg

yet.

2:13:062:13:14

Huw Jones and Watson. He tried to

make his way around Underhill.

2:13:152:13:24

England's defence is working well,

it is up so quickly.

Underhill has

2:13:242:13:32

been a big difference?

He has put

the influence back towards England,

2:13:322:13:38

whereas in the first half they were

badly outgunned.

2:13:382:13:46

A big substitution, Ali Price is

coming on and it is Greig Laidlaw

2:13:462:13:51

going off this time. Laidlaw's work

is done. 18 minutes to go. Different

2:13:512:13:57

types of scrum-half. Greig Laidlaw

has been a crucial part of this

2:13:572:14:01

match.

2:14:012:14:11

Scotland have stretched this lead

back of beyond a converted try, two

2:14:122:14:17

converted tries, the game will be

over. If England camp at three

2:14:172:14:22

points on, five points on, it will

start to get more tense.

2:14:222:14:32

Laidlaw nothing but a tenth

spectator for the next 18 minutes.

2:14:342:14:38

England have good scrum options

either side.

2:14:382:14:45

Just beyond the grasp of May.

2:14:462:14:50

It almost looks like England are

trying to force. The executioners

2:14:572:15:01

poor. They are trying to do a solid,

good, straight scrum. But the

2:15:012:15:08

execution of the pass and the

catchers letting them down. -- and

2:15:082:15:14

the catch is letting them down.

Many, many different players on now.

2:15:142:15:24

REFEREE:

Just get a little bit more

space, OK? Just keep the pressure

2:15:242:15:31

off the space.

Just a bit.

Scotland with the lion's

2:15:312:15:34

share of possession, territory is a

bit more even.

2:15:342:15:39

REFEREE:

Crouch... Bind... Set.

The watchful eye of Nigel Owens.

2:15:452:16:01

A good scrum by Scotland.

2:16:012:16:02

Advantage penalty to Scotland. A

dull penalty, to use the

2:16:202:16:28

description. A foot coming over.

2:16:282:16:36

description. A foot coming over.

It

was specifically banned, as he

2:16:382:16:39

knows.

It is amazing how many of

these dull penalties you have spoken

2:16:392:16:46

about to come out under pressure.

His foot should have been nowhere

2:16:462:16:55

near on either account.

Seymour

getting treatment. Just when England

2:16:552:17:00

were getting a bit of momentum

again. Tommy Seymour, this is where

2:17:002:17:07

the injury happened. He will be

heading off.

2:17:072:17:11

It will be a first cap for a big

talent player coming on. There is

2:17:112:17:21

Blair Kinghorn, the Edinburgh

full-back, winger. Very quick, very

2:17:212:17:26

big talent. What a game to come

onto.

Absolutely. Such a boost to

2:17:262:17:32

see these young players come

through. He is electric talent.

2:17:322:17:36

Played a lot of his rugby as a

stand-off. Coming on the Tommy

2:17:362:17:43

Seymour. Blair Kinghorn will rely on

the experience around him. He is

2:17:432:17:47

very quick with the ball in hand and

understands the game well.

Ben

2:17:472:17:52

Taylor was chatting during the week

about he did not really know what

2:17:522:17:55

this rivalry was or what it meant.

-- Ben Te'o. George Ford is going

2:17:552:18:07

off, there is the presence of Harry

Williams.

2:18:072:18:13

Williams.

I am surprised Te'o is

coming on for Ford. England had to

2:18:162:18:19

create something from this game.

Te'o is a direct route, I thought he

2:18:192:18:27

would perhaps be a direct

replacement for Jonathan Joseph. The

2:18:272:18:32

creative talents of Ford and barrel

together. I am quite surprised

2:18:322:18:35

England made that change. -- of

Fordham Farrell.

2:18:352:18:46

Covers Lawes retreats under the

command of Nigel Owens and Scotland

2:18:532:18:56

make a bit of ground.

2:18:562:19:04

Penalty to Scotland. Williams comes

on, his first action is a no arms

2:19:072:19:14

tackle, gives away a penalty. Bhatti

remains down.

2:19:142:19:22

Apologies for some of that. It does

not look good on Jamie Bhatti. Oh,

2:19:242:19:32

no, it is Underhill. Williams went

low, it is Underhill.

2:19:322:19:44

low, it is Underhill.

No attempt to

use the arms by Underhill. Williams

2:19:442:19:50

did tackle properly, even though he

was low.

2:19:502:19:55

It is Underhill tacking his left

elbow in towards his side, that is

2:19:552:20:00

usually a tell-tale sign. He might

have tried to target the ball.

2:20:002:20:07

REFEREE:

Lads, I am seeing a clear

no one's tackle, a penalty and a

2:20:072:20:14

yellow card.

Nigel Owens is a gay

penalty and yellow card.

2:20:142:20:22

penalty and yellow card. -- Nigel

Owens is saying penalty and yellow

2:20:222:20:24

card.

2:20:242:20:33

card. All the great work initially

by Sam Underhill in this game, that

2:20:332:20:36

could prove costly. England down to

14 men for the next ten minutes.

2:20:362:20:42

Scotland with a penalty, very

capable. Laidlaw is off, but Finn

2:20:422:20:49

Russell will take a shot at goal.

He

has got his elbow towards his body.

2:20:492:20:57

I think it is a fair decision. We

cannot have players at risk of

2:20:572:21:01

injury from shoulder charges. Sam

Underhill has made a big impact, he

2:21:012:21:08

will be disappointed with his

actions.

2:21:082:21:09

Finn Russell takes over where Greig

Laidlaw made off, Scotland have

2:21:222:21:29

their first point of the second

half. They have the man advantage,

2:21:292:21:34

there are 14 minutes remaining for

England to try to salvage this.

2:21:342:21:41

England to try to salvage this.

From

tradition, Scotland should not lose

2:21:422:21:46

this game. If they play sensibly,

they play with the same intensity

2:21:462:21:53

they have been, they should close

this game out.

2:21:532:22:00

Price was there once again.

2:22:062:22:14

England down a man, Sam Underhill

sent to the bin. Eight and a half

2:22:142:22:18

minutes of that punishment

remaining.

2:22:182:22:25

Taken well by Johnny May. England

have to do it from deep now, with 14

2:22:302:22:35

men. Just for a moment, Farrell

looked lost but Jack Nowell took it

2:22:352:22:42

on.

2:22:422:22:43

Can the 14 men galvanise themselves?

2:22:512:22:57

The scrum-halves are having a

kicking contest now.

2:23:072:23:13

England have an opportunity, 14 men

or not. Three blue shirts in front

2:23:132:23:21

of Knowle, but he skipped and the

22.

2:23:212:23:28

22. -- in front of Nowell.

Penalty to Scotland. Nothing going

2:23:282:23:47

the way of England. Scotland's

defence works well again.

John

2:23:472:23:52

Barclay again. Wait until the ruck

again, wait until the breakdown. He

2:23:522:24:00

is choosing his decision. Some good

attack from England.

2:24:002:24:12

You only need to be a split-second

later in your attempt to clear out

2:24:122:24:15

and she will be made to pay. It has

happened several times to

2:24:152:24:25

happened several times to England.

Six penalties to one is the penalty

2:24:252:24:28

count.

Eddie Jones being tested almost as

2:24:282:24:34

never before. In their last 20 16

Nations games, England have only

2:24:342:24:42

lost twice, both in Dublin. This is

a rare feeling for them. -- in their

2:24:422:24:51

last 20 Six Nations game.

Simon Berghan is replaced by WP Nel,

2:24:512:25:00

who is back from injury. David

Denton on in the back row for

2:25:002:25:09

Scotland.

A change in the front row for

2:25:092:25:15

England, Mako Vunipola is off and

Joe Marler is back on.

2:25:152:25:24

Not how he imagined making his

return to the England setup. 11

2:25:242:25:29

minutes still remain, six and a half

minutes remaining of the Underhill

2:25:292:25:35

sentence. From Scotland being the

side that wanted to play a pace,

2:25:352:25:43

they have decided to drop things

now.

2:25:432:25:52

England again on the attack. Even

with 14 men, they have the ball to

2:25:572:26:01

play with.

2:26:012:26:08

The 14 men of England are playing

well enough.

2:26:182:26:26

Still England's ball. Seven phases.

We are into the final ten minutes of

2:26:542:26:59

this game.

2:26:592:27:00

A dozen phases.

2:27:162:27:20

Scotland cry turnover, but not yet.

2:27:282:27:32

Penalty, or a knock-on. I thought it

was going to be a penalty to

2:27:422:27:47

England.

2:27:472:27:54

Nigel Allen says he did not see

anything. -- Nigel Owens.

2:27:542:28:04

Change being made, England making a

couple of changes. Joe Launchbury is

2:28:042:28:09

coming off, and Kruse is coming on.

2:28:092:28:22

-- Kruis is coming on. Wigglesworth

is coming on as well.

2:28:252:28:34

is coming on as well.

The Scotland

defence has been outstanding. Where

2:28:342:28:37

England have found a bit of space,

it is on the edge. As the game has

2:28:372:28:41

got closer and tighter, England's

skill execution has become poorer

2:28:412:28:45

and poorer.

2:28:452:28:52

England are still down to 14 men,

Sam Underhill is off and ball

2:28:542:28:58

minutes of our Tremain. -- and four

minutes of that remain. Even with 14

2:28:582:29:07

men they have had much of the play.

Wigglesworth is on at scrum-half.

2:29:072:29:18

Scotland is quite happy for a couple

of scrum resets.

2:29:232:29:33

Go go there have been a few

penalties and handling errors.

2:29:362:29:45

Eddie Jones does not look happy. He

will be frustrated at some of those

2:29:452:29:52

penalties and handling errors.

2:29:522:30:00

Murrayfield things, the scrum will

reset. -- Murrayfield things. The

2:30:002:30:06

clock ticks away.

2:30:062:30:12

REFEREE:

Once we're down, I called

the set. OK?

2:30:142:30:19

Wait, wait.

The only man many is

McInally, the Scotland hooker, from

2:30:272:30:39

the start.

2:30:392:30:44

the start.

How well Reid has done,

in this game and previous games. A

2:30:442:30:49

penalty to Scotland.

2:30:492:30:52

The time is fast running out for

England here. The feet are

2:31:002:31:06

underneath them. They're not back

like they were a couple of times in

2:31:062:31:12

the first time. Everyone just

collapsing under the pressure.

2:31:122:31:19

That's a decent nudge to touch as

well and Scotland back into the

2:31:192:31:24

England half.

2:31:242:31:31

Scotland is beginning to have a few

more options in the front row.

2:31:372:31:45

McInally will be under pressure.

Grigg, five but he's so strong.

2:31:452:32:05

England desperately trying to rescue

this situation. One room remaining

2:32:122:32:17

at the Sam Underhill yellow card.

England have discourse soon. --

2:32:172:32:24

England hath to score soon.

2:32:242:32:28

Five minutes remaining in the

Calcutta Cup and Scotland a dozen

2:32:352:32:41

points clear.

2:32:412:32:43

Scotland now will tackle themselves

to a standstill.

2:32:542:32:57

Underhill waits to come back on.

2:33:072:33:10

Robshaw now trying to get England to

go forwards.

2:33:212:33:25

Jonny May, look at the blue shirts

around Jonny May! England still

2:33:362:33:42

looking for something. Robshaw

against leading them on. 14 men

2:33:422:33:49

through a dozen phases.

2:33:492:33:57

REFEREE:

Tackle is made, play on!

Tackle is made, play on!

2:34:132:34:23

England move forward, but running

out of time. 17 phases and all the

2:34:252:34:30

while Sam

2:34:302:34:35

while Sam Underhill waiting to come

back on. Advantage to England,

2:34:352:34:38

penalty coming. Penalty but they

have to run.

2:34:382:34:47

England need this score now!

2:34:472:34:55

Robshaw, what carrying he has done!

Two minutes remaining.

2:35:032:35:12

Still England,. Anthony Watson still

going...

2:35:122:35:24

England clearing out the balls there

for them.

2:35:252:35:31

The penalty goals to Scotland and

the Calcutta Cup may well be won.

2:35:442:35:50

Eddie Jones knows it.

2:35:502:35:59

Eddie Jones knows it.

That is a

crucial intervention. I'm sure a lot

2:35:592:36:05

of England fans are saying, why has

it taken this long to England to

2:36:052:36:10

play with this intensity must remark

to play with this straightness and

2:36:102:36:15

directness? Had they done so even

for part of this, they'd be much

2:36:152:36:22

closer.

The Scotland defence

outstanding. More attack. What's

2:36:222:36:31

been lacking for me for England is

an attacking structure. The bits of

2:36:312:36:35

play from individual talent, but

attacking shape and structure I've

2:36:352:36:40

not seen this afternoon.

The final

minutes at Murrayfield and

2:36:402:36:45

Murrayfield knows that victory will

be Scotland's. The line-out goes

2:36:452:36:52

wrong, though. Perhaps Murrayfield

has celebrated too soon.

2:36:522:37:00

Is there a final twist? Time is

against England.

2:37:062:37:11

Flower Of Scotland around the

stadium.

2:37:162:37:26

There may still be a try for

England.

2:37:262:37:36

England. The clock is red, the last

passage of play will not be enough

2:37:362:37:39

for England. Arms are aloft around

Murrayfield already. England look

2:37:392:37:46

for something. A smile on the face

of Grant Gilchrist. England still

2:37:462:37:55

attack.

2:37:552:38:02

Attack to a backdrop of Scottish

song here at Murrayfield.

2:38:032:38:09

Through a phase after phase, all

they can hope for is a losing bonus

2:38:172:38:20

point.

2:38:202:38:22

CHEERING

Anthony Watson has the last touch of

2:38:292:38:36

this extraordinary match. A win for

Scotland for Murrayfield to

2:38:362:38:39

celebrate.

2:38:392:38:44

celebrate. England are stunned, they

so rarely have tasted defeat. But

2:38:462:38:49

for the first time in ten years,

Scotland will drink from the

2:38:492:38:53

Calcutta Cup. An extraordinary

result built on the first half

2:38:532:38:58

performance. Scotland rightly

celebrate. A fantastic victory for

2:38:582:39:06

Scotland here at Murrayfield.

NatWest Man of the Match, Finn

2:39:062:39:12

Russell, who had to put up with so

much criticism after the game

2:39:122:39:17

against France. His contribution

today was outstanding. John Barclay

2:39:172:39:22

was outstanding, but then NatWest

Man of the Match, Finn Russell.

2:39:222:39:35

Man of the Match, Finn Russell.

As

Martin Johnson said earlier on, in

2:39:372:39:42

the build-up to this game, this can

happen and it did happen. The

2:39:422:39:52

championship, the 6 Nations

championship is blown open. And

2:39:522:39:57

again, take nothing as read, as

predicted, in this game because

2:39:572:40:00

England came here such strong,

strong favourites. 25 wins out of

2:40:002:40:08

26. So rarely beaten in the 6

Nations but Scotland have won and

2:40:082:40:12

England go on to try and rescue this

championship. What a win for

2:40:122:40:17

Scotland. Man of the Match Finn

Russell is talking to Sonia

2:40:172:40:20

MacLachlan.

How does this sound?

Scotland winners of the 2018

2:40:202:40:26

Calcutta Cup? The IT sounds amazing.

You hear the crowd just now and it's

2:40:262:40:32

unreal Remy, ten years since we won

2:40:322:40:34

You hear the crowd just now and it's

unreal Remy, ten years since we won

2:40:342:40:34

it. You a much maligned in the week

after your first two performances.

2:40:342:40:41

How much did you personally wants to

come out here and remind people of

2:40:412:40:44

what a fine fly half you are?

It's

been a tough couple of weeks. I'm

2:40:442:40:50

going to keep smiling no matter

what. I've enjoyed all three weeks,

2:40:502:40:55

especially this one. We managed to

turn it on today.

You surprised

2:40:552:41:00

yourself as to how good you were in

the first 40 minutes?

We had a game

2:41:002:41:08

plan and did really well. We played

outstanding in the three games and

2:41:082:41:12

we managed to get back in that kind

of a form.

Do you think Scotland can

2:41:122:41:17

still have a big say in the outcome

of this championship giving you have

2:41:172:41:20

Ireland's away next?

Yeah, it's

going to tough in next couple of

2:41:202:41:25

games but hopefully we have a

chance. Hopefully we'll keep that

2:41:252:41:28

going and build on its next week.

Well done. John Barclay your captain

2:41:282:41:32

is just alongside you. Wow, where

did that come from?

2:41:322:41:39

did that come from?

I think... We've

been fuelled by this last year,

2:41:392:41:48

disappointment in the Wales game. We

haven't become a bad team overnight,

2:41:482:41:54

so it was great to get a win against

France and that's another great win.

2:41:542:41:58

I guess that blows the competition

opened a bit now.

At half-time, did

2:41:582:42:02

you say to yourselves, we need to

keep playing like this? Or was it a

2:42:022:42:07

more pragmatic approach for the

second 40?

It was a bit of keep

2:42:072:42:10

playing the same way and also the

pressure was on them to have to

2:42:102:42:14

score points so a bit of both.

What

about Finn Russell? He took a bit of

2:42:142:42:22

criticism after his first two

performances. What does it say about

2:42:222:42:25

him that he can come out and

controlled the game the way he did?

2:42:252:42:28

I don't know if you read the media

on Friday but I predicted he'd be

2:42:282:42:32

Man of the Match today. That's the

nature of the guy he is, it's his

2:42:322:42:36

character. He plays on that line.

Today, he's outstanding. Is one of

2:42:362:42:45

the best in the world, I believe.

Many congratulations.

Thank you.

2:42:452:42:50

Just alongside you is the England

coach, Eddie Jones. Just shaking

2:42:502:42:54

John Barclay by the hand. Where you

beaten by the better team?

2:42:542:42:59

Congratulations, Scotland. They were

too good for us.

Why do you think

2:42:592:43:03

England were so off the pace,

particularly in the first 40?

Well,

2:43:032:43:09

it's human nature. Unfortunately we

just weren't in the game the first

2:43:092:43:13

40. Scotland played well. Full marks

to Scotland.

How much was that team

2:43:132:43:19

talk about fire and fury from you?

We knew what we were going to get,

2:43:192:43:25

but we didn't meet the challenge

today for some reason. I'm really

2:43:252:43:28

proud of the effort of the boys at

the second half. We stuck in there

2:43:282:43:32

and won the second half.

There was a

pre-match scuffle involving Owen

2:43:322:43:37

Farrell and others among both sets

of players. Did England lose their

2:43:372:43:40

heads?

Look, I don't know. I don't

think so. These things happen.

13

2:43:402:43:46

penalties from your side today. They

can't keep it on a single figures.

2:43:462:43:51

How costly was that?

We need to sit

down and look at why we gave away so

2:43:512:43:57

many penalties and work out the

reason for it. It's never nice to

2:43:572:44:05

get beat especially here, but they

deserve the victory.

Do you think

2:44:052:44:09

England can have a major say in the

outcome of this championship?

Two

2:44:092:44:14

games to go, we'll just take our

next game. We've a lot to learn from

2:44:142:44:18

this game and we put our best foot

forward in the next game.

Thank you.

2:44:182:44:21

Thank you.

2:44:212:44:23

forward in the next game.

Thank you.

Thank you.

2:44:232:44:25

STUDIO: It was a second-half laced

with controversy and drama. That was

2:44:252:44:30

Scotland's biggest ever victory in

the 6 Nations over England and it

2:44:302:44:33

means because they didn't get a

bonus point, England, it's a 3-way

2:44:332:44:37

battle for the title and its

islands, Scotland the next time

2:44:372:44:42

around.

2:44:422:44:47

around. You might yet dared to

dream.

Very much so, but that was a

2:44:482:44:52

brilliant performance all round by

Scotland. The foundations were laid

2:44:522:44:56

in the first half with some

attacking rugby. It was won in the

2:44:562:44:59

second half with some brilliant

defence. John Barclay was at the

2:44:592:45:04

heart of that and he richly deserves

this moment.

For the first time in a

2:45:042:45:08

decade, the Calcutta Cup is

Scotland's. First played for in 1879

2:45:082:45:17

and a few Scottish victories in that

century and a half would have been

2:45:172:45:20

greeted with such rapturous elation.

From England perspective, Martin,

2:45:202:45:25

how do you assess that performance?

I think Eddie said something about

2:45:252:45:31

complacency and that it's never far

away. When you get beaten like that,

2:45:312:45:35

you normally sits down afterwards

and if you're honest with yourself

2:45:352:45:40

you say, were we in the right frame

of mind for that game? If he can

2:45:402:45:43

joke about it, but unless you get

yourself in the right frame of mind

2:45:432:45:49

as a player and team, that can

happen to anybody. In the first

2:45:492:45:52

half, they wait at the races. The

second half, they were a lot better.

2:45:522:45:56

But the cat is out of the bag, the

crowd are going crazy. Everything

2:45:562:46:00

seems to go against them and they

lost composure a bit. Scotland are

2:46:002:46:04

playing like Superman. User at the

start, you give them that they will

2:46:042:46:11

play a lot better. They did

everything you don't want to do away

2:46:112:46:16

from home.

You get the flip side of

that. Scotland in Cardiff against

2:46:162:46:21

Wales, everything they tried didn't

come off. The kicks didn't go their

2:46:212:46:26

way, some of the referee decisions

didn't go their way. Today

2:46:262:46:29

everything went their way. Their

hunt for the ball was spectacular

2:46:292:46:35

and some of the decisions didn't go

their way, but all four us here

2:46:352:46:41

believed they deserve win that game

because their heart and soul was in

2:46:412:46:44

it. It was more than England.

At the

end of the day, England have won a

2:46:442:46:50

lot. They were still turning the

ball over. That's the game. The

2:46:502:46:55

breakdown is the game more than set

pieces nowadays. They committed

2:46:552:47:00

today and they were hungrier, more

aggressive. They thoroughly deserved

2:47:002:47:04

to win.

I think Scotland, for the

first two rounds, were playing way

2:47:042:47:09

below their potential. I played the

Glasgow caused by Gregor Townsend

2:47:092:47:14

towards the end of my career. They

were incredibly difficult in

2:47:142:47:17

contact, they were so physical and

vicious. They were able to play

2:47:172:47:22

rugby while having that physicality.

The final whistle went ten minutes

2:47:222:47:29

ago but nobody has left yet. What

does this do for self belief in the

2:47:292:47:35

Scottish perspective with cyan

there's a lot happening at

2:47:352:47:39

Murrayfield. Nine wins out of ten

now. You can see everybody now comes

2:47:392:47:43

to Murrayfield, almost expecting a

win.

It's not been like that for a

2:47:432:47:49

long time, if ever. You can feel the

atmosphere in here. You can hear it

2:47:492:47:54

now. That is, as I said, the cloud

to the macro crowd almost helped in

2:47:542:47:59

the second half with the defensive

effort. My goodness, they needed.

2:47:592:48:05

How good that defensive effort was

to keep England in that game.

2:48:052:48:13

to keep England in that game.

The

crowd were totally into it. When

2:48:132:48:15

you're away from home, it's exactly

what you don't want. Every decision

2:48:152:48:19

against you, the crowd cheering,

it's 100% harder like that.

We talk

2:48:192:48:25

about decisions against England in

this instance. Let's have a quick

2:48:252:48:28

chat while we milk the occasion

because it is fantastic. It's a

2:48:282:48:33

wonderful atmosphere. I'm sure even

the away fans here are getting into

2:48:332:48:36

the spirit because it's just a great

place to be at the moment like this.

2:48:362:48:43

A lot of debate is going to be about

the way Nigel Owens handled the

2:48:432:48:46

game, particularly in the second

half, and one or two key decisions

2:48:462:48:49

that were made. Martin, talk us

through these.

2:48:492:48:56

through these.

I think his knee goes

down, so technically Nigel is

2:48:562:49:00

probably right in terms of that. As

a player, if he hasn't given the

2:49:002:49:04

advantage and then he puts his arm

up, that's what frustrates you. I

2:49:042:49:08

don't know if it's set on the field.

You can't say maybe, possibly. To

2:49:082:49:18

give Nigel his time is the correct

decision.

He's got to get back and

2:49:182:49:22

get on. It's gone, once he's given

it, gone, next job.

This was hard to

2:49:222:49:29

see at the time. His right hand came

out, a great knock on. That was

2:49:292:49:37

crucial because England have come

out playing in the second half and

2:49:372:49:41

then got that as well as the foul

try and it was game on.

If you want

2:49:412:49:49

to do forensic analysis of the game,

as an inward supporter, you can look

2:49:492:49:52

at every ruck and see a penalty for

you and you can see one for Scotland

2:49:522:49:57

if your Scotland supporter. From my

eyes, I thought Nigel Owens had a

2:49:572:50:01

good game.

Let's hear from Gregor

Townsend, the man of the moment.

2:50:012:50:06

Your first Calcutta Cup match as

coach. First win. Have you got the

2:50:062:50:11

Midas touch?

Well, it equals the

amount I had as a player so it's a

2:50:112:50:17

great feeling. We knew how important

this week was going to be in terms

2:50:172:50:22

of preparation. What it means for

our country, our supporters, and the

2:50:222:50:26

players played with real prize, real

intensity and a lot of accuracy

2:50:262:50:30

especially in the first of.

A real

show of emotion from you when Huw

2:50:302:50:34

Jones went over for his second try.

You were punching the air, out of

2:50:342:50:37

your seat. What was going through

your mind?

It was one of those

2:50:372:50:42

uplifting moments when we didn't

really execute the first and second

2:50:422:50:45

phase options as well as we thought,

but Huw ran hard and made two

2:50:452:50:52

excellent decisions on line breaks

on what to do. He did the right

2:50:522:50:56

thing and his strength got him over

the line and gave everyone a big

2:50:562:50:59

boost.

Is Huw Jones close to be one

of the best centres in the 6

2:50:592:51:03

Nations?

On form, he's very

dangerous. He worked very hard off

2:51:032:51:07

the ball for us. If you're willing

to work to get on ball, that gets

2:51:072:51:14

you rewards.

16 point lead at

half-time. Did you discuss in the

2:51:142:51:19

week, right, we'll have this sort of

lead against England in the Calcutta

2:51:192:51:23

Cup, what do we do?

Know, we discuss

opportunities we believe we can

2:51:232:51:28

create with the way we were looking

to play, the way England's defence,

2:51:282:51:33

and it was pleasing how we took them

today. We also spent a lot of time

2:51:332:51:37

putting our defence in place that

could trouble England, could force

2:51:372:51:40

them into mistakes and we did that

and we felt the contact area was an

2:51:402:51:45

area of opportunity for us today and

we got a lot of turnovers and

2:51:452:51:49

penalties.

You've beaten the second

best side in the world, what about

2:51:492:51:53

the third? You have Ireland's next.

They're pretty good. We got them

2:51:532:51:58

away from home and we need to

improve away from home so it's not

2:51:582:52:02

been great for us over the last few

years. BT Murrayfield has been

2:52:022:52:05

fantastic. We've played the top

three teams in the world at the time

2:52:052:52:12

so with England, New Zealand and

Australia, who were third in

2:52:122:52:15

November, and we played very well

against all three. The job now is to

2:52:152:52:18

make sure we put in a very good

performance away from home against a

2:52:182:52:22

top quality team.

You get a week

off. Do you allow your team to

2:52:222:52:27

celebrate tonight?

Oh, yes! It's

been a long time since we won that

2:52:272:52:31

trophy. Hopefully back at our hotel

later tonight.

Congratulation.

Thank

2:52:312:52:38

you.

Hopefully undamaged like it was

occasionally in the old days.

2:52:382:52:43

There's the Calcutta Cup. Dating

back to the Calcutta rugby club in

2:52:432:52:49

1879. Offer appreciation for what

Gregor has done having picked up the

2:52:492:52:55

taken the team on.

I think he has.

He's taken it, he came in and a lot

2:52:552:53:02

of people doubted whether it was the

right time. I think the last part of

2:53:022:53:06

that interview says a lot about

Gregor Townsend that he's already

2:53:062:53:08

looking to try to correct the away

record that's not been good. I think

2:53:082:53:14

that shows you he's moving on

already. They'll enjoy that tonight.

2:53:142:53:19

They'll analyse it and be very proud

in many ways of that game, but

2:53:192:53:23

Gregor has the temperament like Finn

Russell. He never gets too high or

2:53:232:53:29

too low. He'll take that, move on

and they'll address their away form

2:53:292:53:33

in the next game.

If we show some of

the errors and the penalties England

2:53:332:53:37

gave away, I'm sure Eddie Jones will

be analysing these ad 4am tomorrow.

2:53:372:53:40

What do we say about these?

I think

you get these into this situation.

2:53:402:53:52

Frustration comes into it, you think

everything is going against you.

2:53:522:53:56

You've got to be to keep your head

in these situations.

This is a

2:53:562:54:01

simple schoolboy error. Jonny May 's

putting in touch when he gets the

2:54:012:54:06

ball. Looking for another player and

this is the yellow card where

2:54:062:54:13

Underhill comes in with his

shoulder. This is the resulting

2:54:132:54:16

penalty for Scotland that Finn

Russell knocked over and calmed

2:54:162:54:20

everything down.

Turned the pressure

off from that early try.

Sam is a

2:54:202:54:27

young player, trying to make

something happen. Like Courtney. You

2:54:272:54:36

have to keep your head. You start

getting penalised and the game just

2:54:362:54:41

slips away and we knew with 15

minutes to go.

A lot of those

2:54:412:54:45

mistakes were forced by the defence,

the intense defence, the hits that

2:54:452:54:50

were going in time and time again,

they were not giving England any

2:54:502:54:54

easy lines or yards. They were

knocking it back, fantastic

2:54:542:54:57

defensive effort. Ryan Wilson, with

his family, at the back row with

2:54:572:55:03

John Barclay, were outstanding. The

whole pack, defensively, and their

2:55:032:55:08

workrate were bang on today.

You

taught at the start about England

2:55:082:55:13

not being up for the fight even if

in advance you can tell yourself

2:55:132:55:16

you're up for it but when push comes

to shove your not. Who do you put

2:55:162:55:20

that responsibility... At his door

does that sit?

Everyone because you

2:55:202:55:25

are a team. You as a player after

turn up ready to go. Add to that the

2:55:252:55:30

leaders of the team had the sense

that within you. We've all been

2:55:302:55:33

there where we thought were right

for the game and you go out and

2:55:332:55:36

you're not. It's a very fine line.

We've seen Scotland played

2:55:362:55:41

tremendously today. The opening game

of the tournament, they were

2:55:412:55:45

terrible. We sat at the start, these

games are one-off games in a way.

2:55:452:55:48

They don't follow on. England will

be stunned by this. There's nothing

2:55:482:55:53

like getting defeated like this as

we talked about at the start to

2:55:532:55:55

bring you into good form. They'll go

to Paris with all the momentum to

2:55:552:56:01

have a go.

It will be interesting to

hear what the England captain has to

2:56:012:56:06

say.

England had the first 40 to

forget and it was really your

2:56:062:56:12

ultimate undoing. What happened to

your team?

2:56:122:56:15

ultimate undoing. What happened to

your team?

I think we lacked

2:56:152:56:17

intensity, certainly in the

breakdown. A lot of turnover, for

2:56:172:56:22

Scotland. We couldn't build

pressure, they built a good lead and

2:56:222:56:30

like most good teams, they held that

lead. A lot to chase and the second

2:56:302:56:35

half. The boys gave a good crack but

ultimately it was too much.

16

2:56:352:56:40

points down at half-time. Did you

still as a group in the dressing

2:56:402:56:42

room believe you could get into the

game?

Of course we did. We wanted to

2:56:422:56:46

take each pay. Just get back into

the game. We didn't want to chase

2:56:462:56:50

the game. There was a couple of

turning points in that game. Small

2:56:502:56:55

things in the second half where we

just let the pressure off and didn't

2:56:552:56:58

quite... Courtney's tackle, these

things are close. Scotland played a

2:56:582:57:07

great game and built a great lead

and we will ultimately chasing.

How

2:57:072:57:11

big event is based in England's

ambition in the way that they've

2:57:112:57:15

progressed?

This is part of our

journey. It's disappointing, it's a

2:57:152:57:20

change. Some players are down but

we've got to learn from that. Win or

2:57:202:57:28

lose, we always want to get better.

This will be a big part of our

2:57:282:57:32

journey. The only thing we can do

now is look at the game and improve.

2:57:322:57:37

We got a lot to work on.

Thank you.

Thank you.

He spoke well. Final

2:57:372:57:42

thoughts. Ireland winning a narrow

match against Wales. What will Joe

2:57:422:57:49

Schmidt think when he watches that

back west to mark what will he think

2:57:492:57:53

of the challenge in Scotland in two

weeks?

I think Scotland are very

2:57:532:57:56

hard to defend. With Finn Russell

playing like that, they are very

2:57:562:58:01

unpredictable. I think from an Irish

point of view you'd be hoping that

2:58:012:58:05

the Finn Russell from the first two

rounds turns up but if that Finn

2:58:052:58:09

Russell turns up, you'll have to be

100% on your mettle for every single

2:58:092:58:14

play. If you lose focus for one

play, it'll hurt your playing.

They

2:58:142:58:19

are masters at the breakdown. They

are very without slowing down the

2:58:192:58:24

ball and nicking the ball and now

they have an extra attacker. Huw

2:58:242:58:29

Jones is definitely arriving in

international rugby.

I think they

2:58:292:58:33

were very smart how they used Finn

Russell today. Stuart Hogg took the

2:58:332:58:37

pressure off from penalties and said

to Finn Russell, go out there, take

2:58:372:58:42

a bit of the pressure off. Finn

Russell lost his mojo quickly and

2:58:422:58:47

got it back there today. He is then

a very dangerous player in Dublin in

2:58:472:58:51

two weeks.

Scotland have to be able

to play away from home without the

2:58:512:58:55

emotion of Murrayfield and all that

goes with it and play well and win.

2:58:552:58:58

England will have a horrible two

weeks. The next chance they get is

2:58:582:59:04

in Paris to go and have a go. That's

the only time they can put it right,

2:59:042:59:09

on the field.

They say history is

written by the victors and this is

2:59:092:59:13

the most historic cup in all of

rugby. Did you believe when he came

2:59:132:59:16

to Murrayfield today that Scotland

would win?

I think they had a chance

2:59:162:59:20

and they proved it with a great

performance.

They did. Thanks very

2:59:202:59:23

much, guys. A great occasion, great

day for 6 Nations rugby. The

2:59:232:59:28

Calcutta Cup, the most historic

trophy of all, is alive and well and

2:59:282:59:33

blue. Goodbye.

2:59:332:59:37

2:59:372:59:41

This latest instalment. Oh, Huw

Jones!

2:59:412:59:50

It's Jones!

Another try for England!
