SIX NATIONS: England fall to Scotland at Twickenham

SIX NATIONS: England fall to Scotland at Twickenham

 

England's Six Nations title defence got off to a terrible start as they lost to rivals Scotland on the opening weekend.

Eddie Jones' side lost the Calcutta Cup in an 11-6 defeat at Twickenham - Scotland's first win at England's home ground since 1983.

Duhan van der Mewhe's scored the only try of the game as Scotland ended a 38-year wait to win at their arch-rivals.

Backed as favourites to win the tournament, England will be disappointed to start off their Six Nations campaign this way.

It was a repeat of the first match these two participated in, way back in 1871 - the first game of rugby union - which Scotland also won.

In fact, it was the 150th anniversary of that match meaning there was no shortage of history heading into this game.
