Just hearing of a scuffle in the tunnel after the warm up. Should spice things up nicely.

17 Minutes – Penalty – Farrell Scotland 10-6 England
Farrell clears over an easy 3 points after Scotland are penalised for blocking the defeders from a box kick. You can’t be active in blocking from a ruck.
23 Minutes – Scrum awarded to Scotland in the England 22.
26 Minutes – England defence keeps Scotland out, they are kicking the possession away to Scottish at the minute and they are loving the counter attack, first up tackles for England are struggling to stop Scotlands go forward.
31 Minutes – TRY! Maitland scores in the corner for Scotland.
39 Minutes – TRY! and Conversion Jones Scotland 22-6 England
Jones makes a great line between Hughes and Farrell. Brown and Watson have a go at taking him down but the tackles are no good.
40 Minutes – Ford restarts the game, barely seen him.
TRY! 44′ Farrell Scotland 22-13 England
Farrell on the short sides ghosts past the defence to score almost under the posts.
52 Minutes – Scotland mess up a try if they could just work it out the wing. England back in this game though, big last 30 minutes for both teams.
England defence isn’t coping with Scotland and they are finding gaps everywhere.
54 Minutes – Try disallowed, a thunderous tackle from Lawes on Finn Russell, Farrell and Watson kick through as the ball spills loose for Farrell to dot down. Nigel Owens pulls it back though as TMO review confirms a knock on by Lawes in the tackle.
56 Minutes – Scotland break down Maitlands wing, but he is pulled into touch by Mike Brown just before he heads off the field.
62 Minutes – Possession going between the two teams, neither making much of a dent in either defence.
65 Minutes – England need a big score in the next few minutes to give them a fighting chance of this match.
66 Minutes – YELLOW CARD – Underhill – No Arms tackle
England give Scotland easy shot at 3 points, Underhill with bad form and shoulder charges Scottish player. Sill penalty and England to fight back with a man down.
Penalty! Scotland 25-13 England – Finn Russell
The game is all but done for England here.
68 Minutes – England attack, but give away a penalty for holding on as Scotland compete well at the lineout.
72 Minutes – England run through phase play, but it breaks down with a knock on. Scrum to Scotland in their own half.
79 Minutes – England move up the field and it looks like they could pull off a score. But it doesn’t happen and England get pinged. The ball is Scotlands and Murrayfield cheers as the game is theirs.
A well earned victory to Scotland who dominated at the breakdown. Some may ask questions about Nigel Owens, but Scotland lethal when they had the oppurtunity and won turnovers.
Finn Russell picks up man of the match, he certainly had a better game than his previous two outings. But a great team performance. Huw Jones is a centre with huge potential and is proving it on the big stage.
