England host Scotland this evening in fifth and final round of fixtures, as this year’s Six Nations draws to a close at Twickenham.
Scotland emerged victorious when these old rivals faced each other at Murrayfield last year, and lifted the Calcutta Cup after a thrilling 25-13 triumph.
That was the first time the Scots had defeated the English since 2008, and saw centre Huw Jones score Scotland’s first try against England in 14 years, but if they are to win at Twickenham for the first time since 1983 they will have to at least emulate the intensity of that performance.
Mark Pougatch will be live on ITV and ITV HD from 4.15pm, where he’ll be joined in the studio by Jonny Wilkinson, Clive Woodward and Ian McGeechan.
Pitchside reports come from Martin Bayfield and Jim Hamilton, while match commentary comes from Nick Mullins, Lawrence Dallaglio and Scott Hastings.
ITV will show the first fixture of the day as Italy host France from 12.30pm, while the BBC airs Wales v Ireland from 2.45pm
