    Recap

    As if all the excitement was not enough from the Wales v Ireland test the Scots had something special planned for England in the last game of the Championship.

    Scotland produced one of the best fight backs we have seen at test level when they were down 31-0 before halftime.

    They did score their first try before halftime to go into the break 31-7 behind.

    England ran in four tries securing a bonus point before halftime through Jack Nowell, Tom Curry, Joe Launchbury and Jonny May.

    What unfolded after the break nobody could believe.

    Scotland came roaring back in what one can only call ridiculous style.

    Darcy Graham wriggled over for a double before Magnus Bradbury went charging through the middle and Finn Russell picked off Owen Farrell.

    The English was stunned, half an hour ago they were 31-0 down and suddenly they were level at 31-31.

    Johnson blasted through the English backline to score under the poles with minutes to go. Scotland was in front and they were thinking that a 36-year wait is over in beating England at home.

    With Scotland in the lead and the clock in the red, England mounted one last attack and despite valiant Scottish defence, Ford went over and converted to claim a draw in this 11-try thriller.

    This still give Scotland to keep the Calcutta Cup and one of the best fight backs we have seen in test rugby.

    Nobody really gave the Scots a change throughout the week and England coach even mocked the Scots for their record against England at Twickenham.

    Social media did not forget any of the mockery from England fans nor Jones.

    Joe Marler made some strong statements in the week about the Scots…

    That came back to bite him…..
