Six Nations: Scotland offers England at Twickenham


Exploit of the XV of the thistle in English soil (23-29) this Saturday on the occasion of the entry into the running of the two teams.

What a successful coup by Gregor Townsend's men!

The Scots went to seek, this Saturday, a success during the first day of the Tournament against England.

The decision was made at the end of the game thanks to a try by van der Merwe.

For his first with the English team, coach Steve Borthwick records his first defeat with the XV of the rose before facing Italy next Sunday in Rome (4 p.m.) while the XV of the thistle will receive Wales next Saturday (5:45 p.m.).

Scotland had a very good start to the game.

From the 15th minute, the Scots multiply the charges and put the XV of the rose under pressure.

Stuart Hogg's teammates play the advantage and Tuipulotu sends a nice low kick that Huw Jones picks up to score the first try of the match (15th).

10 minutes later, England replied with their winger Max Malins, in a corner and after a good job from the forwards.

The crossover continues between the two teams.

Van der Merwe recovers the leather on his 50 meters and pierces the entire English defense.

A sublime test, which will certainly be one of the most beautiful tests of the competition.

The English then put the turbo and Malins, again him, scores in a corner after a duel won by Ludlam (38th).


Winger van der Merwe was colossal against England.


A constant crossover

On the return of the lemons, the English accelerated and it was Genge, omnipresent who scored a new try (48th).

At that point in the game, Borthwick's men made the break.

But was not without counting a trickster try from Ben White flush with a ruck (51st) and a new penalty from Russell (52nd).

The match got carried away and despite the difficulties of the Scottish pack in conquest, the latter attacked wide and once again sent van der Merwe into a corner.

The colossus of South African origin eliminates three defenders and scores.

Russell transforms and allows his people to pass in front.

The English will try everything at the end of the match but will not manage to score.

Very good shot from Scotland who wins with the offensive bonus and is full of confidence.
