Scotland will hope to continue their recent Calcutta Cup dominance as England come to Murrayfield for a crucial Six Nations fixture.

It is four years since England last took victory in this famous fixture, with that narrow 2020 win their sole success in the last six editions of the clash.

For Gregor Townsend’s hosts, victory is surely a must after a much-debated defeat to France before the first fallow week left their hopes of mounting a title challenge slim.

Steve Borthwick, meanwhile, will know his side must be better than against Wales as they look to continue to build momentum. Here’s everything you need to know. Get the latest Calcutta Cup odds and tips here.

Team news

Blair Kinghorn returns to the Scotland side after overcoming injury, with Kyle Steyn also returning to the starting back three having been a late scratch against France due to the impending arrival of his newborn daughter. Former skipper Jamie Ritchie is brought back on the blindside to complement Rory Darge and Jack Dempsey in the back row, with Matt Fagerson out of the squad entirely.

England also switch full-backs, though Freddie Steward’s demotion comes as more of a surprise after a strong performance in the win over Wales. George Furbank is preferred to the Leicester man after an impressive season leading Northampton to the top of the Premiership table, and offers an extra pair of distributing hands with Ollie Lawrence in to add carrying potency in midfield after injury. Danny Care replaces the injured Alex Mitchell at scrum half and wins his 99th cap, while George Martin returns to the bench.
