Scotland v England: Six Nations

Steve Borthwick unfazed by Scotland gamesmanship threat

Starting from inside their 22, they first tested the left wing before a long pass from Russell swept play to the opposite touchline where the rampaging Jones found acres of space.

England suffered only their second defeat under the stewardship of head coach Eddie Jones as the Auld Enemy broke an eight-game losing streak.

On a more positive note, this was only England's second defeat in 26 matches, but it could still have huge implications for their Six Nations campaign.

Scotland run out 25-13 winners after three tries in a blistering first half saw them lead 22-6 at the break. "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 came out for the second half 22-6 down - its largest halftime deficit in 136 meetings against Scotland - and scored its only try nearly immediately through center Owen Farrell.

Lee Mears expects England to overpower Scotland and stay on course to make history with a Calcutta Cup victory at Murrayfield on Saturday.

Jones, a star in the making, kicked forward and gathered to ground in the 15th minute for Scotland's first home try against the English since 2004. It didn't spark a comeback, though.

Radio Host: Companies Splitting From NRA 'Basing Business Practices on Thought-Policing'
Social media users have taken to Twitter in an effort to name and shame those companies and others for their NRA affiliation. The NRA announced Friday said it still objects to raising the age limit for buying semi-automatic weapons to 21 from 18.

He added on The Offload podcast: "We must be able to impose our game on England, and play the way we did against the All Blacks".

He has 10 tries in 14 tests, having also crossed twice in Scotland's humiliating Twickenham loss previous year and against Samoa, New Zealand, and Australia in the autumn.

Scotland went back on the offensive and their cause was aided when Sam Underhill was sin-binned for a no arms tackle, allowing Russell to land a penalty that opened a 12-point lead with 14 minutes remaining.

Finn Russell knocked over the penalty and the party could start in earnest in a fevered atmosphere at Murrayfield.

However, that didn't stop Scotland breaking down the other side of the pitch, and Maitland quickly emerged into the corner and over the try line.

"That was as good a victory Scotland have had probably since 1986", former Scotland fullback Gavin Hastings said.
