The game had been played at an incredible intensity from the opening minutes with England pressuring the Scots heavily around the breakdown.

We saw as Maro Itoje was able to charge down Scotland scrum-half Ali Price numerous times at the breakdown, but it was the visitors who were able to get on the scoresheet first through the boot of Finn Russell.

Scotland were first to score a try in the match after having had the upper hand in the first half.

This was the opening score for South African born winger, Duhan van der Merwe.

It looked like this yellow card for Finn Russell might have halted the momentum of the Scottish charge.

The Scottish held strong and upped their intensity into the second half, managing to stifle the English attack in atrocious wet conditions.

One man who dominated in midfield was Cameron Redpath who was clinical at inside centre. There was huge hype going into the game around this 21-year-old – and he more than lived up to it with an assured running performance.

Scotland managed to hold on to record a historic 6-11 win, their first at Twickenham for 38 years.
