First topic message reminder :

England v Scotland
6N Round 5
Saturday 16th March
Twickenham Stadium
London

KO 17.00

Well here we are at the final round of matches and three teams can still come out on top following Ireland's demolition of France this afternoon.

England have the advantage of playing last and will know what they have to do, if Wales have not already wrapped it up with a Grand Slam earlier in the afternoon. That actually might be Scotland's best chance of getting anything out of this game if England get distracted about what is going on else where, particularly if they find playing for second spot a distraction, knowing Wales have already wrapped things up.

On paper, this is only going to be an English win, the only question being by how much.

Scotland have had an awful championship, where just about everything that could have gone wrong. They are only playing for pride, but history tells us that sides that are done at this stage in the competition, rarely have anything left in the tank for the final game.

It is not as if Scotland have any form at Twickenham either, we have not won there since 1983 (did I ever mention that I was there!). We had had a crap season and no-one gave us much of a chance that year either if I remember, then the following year we won the GS. Can I see that happening this time though?

Only in my dreams!

So what do both sides hope to get from the game?

England clearly want a BP victory, some revenge for last year and hopefully a championship. They would also like to show the continued emergence of such players as Cockanasiga, who could be pivotal to them doing well in the WC.

Scotland, despite whatever spin they put on the game, might just be happy with a decent performance and continued development of some of our young starlets. We took another pile of injuries this weekend and getting a half decent competitive side onto the pitch is going to be a challenge in itself. Still, this exposure might be the making of young Hastings, Bradbury, Graham, McDowell, Skinner, Ritchie and anyone else who gets to play, down the line.

Test rugby is a hard old place to earn your living and they will likely be finding that out next weekend.



England


Daly, Nowell, Slade, Tuilagi, May; Farrell, Youngs; Moon, George, Sinckler, Launchbury, Kruis, Wilson, Curry, B Vunipola.

Replacements: Cowan-Dickie, Genge, Cole, Shields, Hughes, Spencer, Ford, Te'o



Scotland:

Maitland; Graham, Grigg, Johnson, McGuigan; Russell, Price; Dell, McInally (capt), Nel; Toolis, Gilchrist; Skinner, Watson, Bradbury.

Replacements: Brown, Reid, Berghan, J Gray, Strauss, Laidlaw, Hastings, Harris

This is a very disappointing six nations in terms of competitive games. It's like Wales and England are the only teams that bothered to turn up. Men against boys most matches.

Bring back Frank Hadden....

This is truly awful. Three locks and we still can't win a lineout.

As I've said in other topics, toonies luck is finally running out, he's being horribly exposed as a coach. Our attack hasn't looked this impotent in years. We haven't looked this disorganised since Scott 'call me mate' Johnson. It's been a downward spiral for the last year as toonie has had time to bed in.

Injuries don't help but none of these players are that bad. Italy caused England more problems than we are.

Wonder if Toonie will do the postmatch interview. For about the first time ever he looks almost clinically depressed.

Oh my God. Worst Scotland performance I've ever seen. That is saying something.

If this continues Toonie may well have to resign.

Let's talk about Brexit instead. It'll be more fun.

I'm done. This is too awful. After supporting Scotland through all the Poopie we've had this really takes the piss.

I nearly made it through a half but i dont really fancy seeing another team put 80 points on us.

Get McInally on the wing so we can get a decent hooker on.

May missed a tackle and Farrell gets outrun by a hooker - surely that's not in the script?
