Laidlaw’s conversion made it 10-3.

England got another penalty to take their score to six

It was a gain Finn Russell that was doing his part to send Sean Maitland over in the corner.

Then came the Huw Jones moment running straight through England defence and with two English on his back had the power to get over the line

  1. Well I’ll be. A weekend for upsets, although I saw a video earlier the week, that detailed why the Scots are the perfect foil to England and their gameplan. Didn’t believe they could pull it off though. Well done Scotland
