Six Nations - round two

  • 42 mins: Scotland's line-out picked up by Robshaw and England get on the front foot with Burrell, who picks out May. The England winger looks to come inside and Farrell looks for a cross-field kick to Nowell, but it's far too heavy.

    2/8/2014 6:05:10 PM
  • [yellow-card]52 mins: England get the break through the brutality of Vunipola and May races for the line. Dunbar comes in and fails to release, he will spend the next 10 minutes in the sin bin for his efforts. 
    2/8/2014 6:07:02 PM

    2/8/2014 6:08:10 PM

    2/8/2014 6:08:42 PM

    2/8/2014 6:10:32 PM
  • 55 mins: Laidlaw kicks deep into English territory and May collects, only to hand a cheap pass to Brown but he and Twelvetrees are happy to work their way out of trouble rather than kick out of panic. 
    2/8/2014 6:11:06 PM
  • 75 mins: England making more and more territory but again lose the line-out from the throw off Youngs.
    2/8/2014 6:36:27 PM

    2/8/2014 6:36:45 PM

    2/8/2014 6:37:35 PM
  • 78 mins: England get the ball out and look to spread it wide before winning the penalty after Farrell's individual dash. 
    2/8/2014 6:38:30 PM
  • 79 mins: England win their scrum just outside the Scotland 10-metre line but fail to make it over the gain line and we come back for a Scotland scrum. 
    2/8/2014 6:40:34 PM
  • 80 mins: Clock has gone red as Scotland win the scrum and look to move away from their own 10-metre. It comes back to Weir and he launches it into the stands. 
    2/8/2014 6:41:17 PM
  • [full-time]SCOTLAND 0-20 ENGLAND
    A comfortable evening for England as they get their 6 Nations challenge underway. It was definitely a war of attrition for the purists as conditions dictated the run of play more than player quality. Luther Burrell and Mike Brown both touched down their second England tries, while a drop-goal from Danny Care and seven points from the boot of Owen Farrell gave the visitors a commanding scoreline.

  • [half-time]FRANCE 9-3 ITALY
    A scrappy first half, definitely one for the purists. 16 penalties, but only four of which registering on the scoreboard as Philippe Saint-Andre's men go in with the advantage. An error-strewn performance from both sides but France, eventually, made Italy pay for their lack of discipline.
