6N: Scotland blow away England 25-13 to lift Calcutta Cup

Superb Scotland stun England to win Calcutta Cup

Scotland Women 8-43 England Women: Danielle Waterman and Charlotte Pearce both scored two tries as England beat their Scottish rivals in the Women's Six Nations at Scotstoun.

"It was unbelievable to go out and beat England".

With Scotland turning over England in Edinburgh and Ireland rolling Wales in Dublin the Irish now enjoy a 5pt lead on the table with 2 matches remaining.

"We're under no illusions - we've now got a really tough away game".

Jones, who has scored 10 tries in just 14 Tests, was well aware of the task facing Scotland for all their collective brilliance against England. "We knew how important this week was going to be, what it meant to our supporters and the players played with some real pride".

England thought they were about to score their second try when Care intercepted a loose pass from opposing scrum-half Laidlaw but referee Nigel Owens penalised England lock Joe Launchbury for slowing the ball at the preceding ruck.

His other try might end up being the best of the tournament, breaking through a tackle just inside England's half and running 50 meters before bursting through two defenders to score.

Television footage of the incident that took place shortly before kick-off of Scotland's 25-13 victory on Saturday appears to show a scuffle between Farrell and Ryan Wilson that ended when they were pulled apart by team-mates. "But resilience and toughness stays and that is what we are trying to develop", added Jones, whose over-riding goal with England is to win next year's World Cup in Japan.

England then found themselves a man down with 14 minutes left when Sam Underhill was sin-binned for a unsafe challenge on opposing replacement Jamie Bhatti.

Russell knocked over the penalty and the party could start in earnest in a fevered atmosphere at Murrayfield. It would also tee them up for a Grand Slam game against England, in Twickenham, on March 17. Things seem to start going against you when you try so hard to catch up.

Wales attacked from the kickoff and were making ground on the wings until, with 80m 30s gone, Gareth Anscombe threw a floater out to the right wing and Ireland speedster Jacob Stockdale intercepted and ran 40m untouched to the posts to finally settle the result.

As it stands Ireland are the team to beat in 2018.

Ireland host Scotland next in two weeks, not having lost a championship match at home in more than five years. The England side that won the 2003 Grand Slam before clinching World Cup glory went through the agony of losing the 1999 and 2002 titles and 2000 and 2001 Grand Slams; the great All Blacks suffered 24 years of World Cup hurt before finally securing their first step towards World Cup greatness in 2011.
