Scotland 20 - 17 England LIVE: Calcutta Cup retained as 38-year wait ended at Murrayfield

Scotland get their Six Nations campaign underway this afternoon and they don’t come much bigger than England at BT Murrayfield.

The stadium will be packed to the rafters with tickets like gold dust around Edinburgh with fans missing out during last year’s tournament due to Covid-19.

It is the 140th meeting between the teams with the 139th one of the most memorable as Scotland won 11-6 at Twickenham Stadium. Eddie Jones and his men will be out for revenge but there is a confidence around the Scotland team.
