Scotland retained the Calcutta Cup at Twickenham in without question the most incredible game in the 150-year history of rugby’s oldest contest, coming from 31-0 down to lead 38-31 before an England try with the last play of the game denied them their first win in London for 36 years.
Scotland need to make a statement at Twickenham today about their under-performance in this year’s Guinness Six Nations, their poor away form AND their dreadful record at English rugby’s HQ, agreed skipper Stuart McInally.
Gregor Townsend’s believes the Mission Impossible at Twickenham can be won – even if he was forced to make yet another change due to injury issues on selection day for Saturday’s final Guinness 6 Nations game against England.
Gregor Townsend has dropped Jonny Gray, Josh Strauss and Jamie Ritchie from his pack and Pete Horne from the backs for Scotland’s final Guinness 6 Nations game against England at Twickenham on Saturday.
Scotland will be self-critical and need to make more of their scoring chances, but there will be no change in philosophy or attempt at damage limitation in the daunting trip to Twickenham, says playmaker Finn Russell.
