The last time England played Scotland in Twickenham, the match ended in a 38-38 draw.

The match was one of the most bizarre games we have ever witnessed, and many could argue that this was a fluke match.

Who has the stronger team?

On paper, it still is England by a long stretch. The men in white are missing the likes of Sinckler, Marler, Underhill and Vunipola. However, they still have one of the strongest teams in the tournament.

A predicted England starter team still has bags of talent in many different positions. The replacements that they bring in an arguably better team than Scotland have still.

1. Ellis Genge
2. Jamie George
3. Will Stuart
4. Maro Itoje
5. Courtney Lawes
6. Tom Curry
7. Ben Earl
8. Sam Simmonds
9. Ben Young’s
10. George Ford
11. Jonny May
12. Owen Farrell
13. Henry Slade
14. Anthony Watson
15. Elliot Daly

Scotland, on the other hand, have one of the strongest backlines that they have ever assembled.

Adam Hastings, Stuart Hogg, Finn Russell and the newly added Cam Redpath give Scotland one of the most deadly backlines that we have seen. However, their forwards still struggle to match England’s.

This is a predicted Scotland line up for the game against England on the weekend.

  1. Rory Sutherland
  2. Fraser Brown
  3. Zander Fagerson
  4. Scott Cummings
  5. Jonny Gray
  6. Blade Thomson
  7. Ritchie Gray
  8. Matt Fagerson
  9. Ali Price
  10. Finn Russell
  11. Darcy Graham
  12. Adam Hastings
  13. Cam Redpath
  14. Duan van der Merwe
  15. Stuart Hogg

Two very strong teams for certain.

The Rugby Onslaught Alpha prediction

England never play well when they have the big favourites tag.

The injuries to some of the key players has given the media an excuse to convince fans that England will struggle against Scotland in this Six Nations clash. The reality is that England as still as strong as they have been in every position despite the injuries.

Prediction: England by 7+
