Scotland vs England – Live Match
Six Nations 2016
Date & Time: Saturday, 06 February 2016 – 04:40 pm uk time
Channels: BBC Sports (UK), RTE (Ireland), FR2 (France)
Preview & Predictions: Scotland has come alongway under their ex-manager Clements and they are one of the favourites to win this years Six Nations, specially after their Rugby World Cup performances last year. They have a quality lineup who can turn it on against any big team this year. England are no longer they force they once were but they do have a superb record against Scotland having won 9 of their last 10 meeting between the two and Scotland has not beaten England in last 10 matches with only 1 draw coming back in 2010.
But playing at home against England side who are bound to be under pressure after their abysmal showing in world cup last year, will surely put Scotland into driving seat going into the game. Predicting a result in this one is a far-cry but even with Scotland’s improved showings since their last years Six Nations I am going with a narrow win for England with not more than 3 points in it.
