What is the latest news?

Here is what our columnist Brian Moore says about the game:

England’s recent record against teams ranked higher than them is poor. Thus, their next game, against Scotland at Murrayfield, is the ideal opportunity to take the next step on the path back to rugby’s top table. A win would open up a genuinely seismic game against the Irish, with the winner left the sole contender for a Slam. A loss would mean England had won just one out of the last six Calcutta Cup games and that they belong at the bottom end of the table, where they have dwelt for the past three years.

Though it will not be accepted as such by Steve Borthwick, this is a vital game as it will show whether there has been any genuine improvement under him in this Six Nations.

When did Scotland and England last win the Six Nations?

Scotland last won in 1999, before Italy joined and when the tournament was known as the Five Nations. England last won in 2020.

Scotland’s last Grand Slam was in 1990. England’s last Grand Slam was in 2016.

Scotland’s last Triple Crown was also in 1990. England’s last Triple Crown was in 2020.
