Scotland Team Named For Calcutta Cup Clash

Head Coach Gregor Townsend has reselected the starting line-up from Scotland’s round two win over France (32-26) for this Saturday’s Calcutta Cup clash with England at BT Murrayfield Stadium (kick-off 4.45pm) – live on BBC.

The team features three changes to the bench with fit-again prop Willem Nel (Edinburgh Rugby), lock Tim Swinson (Glasgow Warriors) and centre Nick Grigg, after consistency of performance for Glasgow Warriors highlighted in a man-of-the-match winning performance last weekend in a bonus-point win over Cheetahs.

Scotland Head Coach Gregor Townsend, said: “Taking on England is going to be a huge challenge and we are well aware that only our very best will be good enough in this fixture. As always our supporters will play a vital role throughout the match and we’re delighted to be back at BT Murrayfield with the backing of our home fans.”
