Rugby U


Good afternoon, the pivotal game in the Six Nations for 2017, the biggest Calcutta Cup game for many a year, England v Scotland from Twickenham with me, Rob Sutton, let's do this!


Wales beating Ireland in Cardiff last night means an England win will secure back-to-back championships, they would also equal the all time record of consecutive wins set by the All Blacks, a first Scotland win at Twickenham in 34 years would leave them in pole position for a first title since 1999.

To the team news, we will start with England Brown, Nowell, Joseph, Farrell, Daly, Ford, Youngs, Marler, Hartley, Cole, Launchbury, Lawes, Itoje, Haskell, Hughes Replacements: George, M Vunipola, Sinckler, Wood, B Vunipola, Care, Te'o, Watson.

Scotland: Hogg, Seymour, Jones, Dunbar, Visser, Russell, Price, Reid, Brown, Ferguson, R Gray, J Gray, Barclay, Watson, Wilson Replacements: Ford, Dell, Berghan, Swinson, Du Preez, Pyrgos, Weir, Bennett.

Perfect afternoon for rugby in TW1, 4 Scottish wins at HQ in 106 years, they won't have a better chance than today, 10 minutes to kick off.

The official #MysticRoddy prediction is England 18-22 Scotland. Really fancy us today.


England by 5 for me pal but hope it's a cracking game!

We have the Calcutta Cup, the Triple Crown and the Championship trophies up for grabs this afternoon!

Joe Marler on his 50th cap leads the sides out to the usual fire display at Twickenham.

Anthems time, Flower of Scotland up first.

The kids did an okay job with the anthem, the Scots are down in force and now for God Save the Queen.

GSTQ - the National Anthem of the United Kingdom, some Commonwealth countries and Crown Dependencies - but not England.

Nothing quite like a Calcutta Cup Saturday, we are an ITV ad break away from kick off.
