Why Scotland might 'fancy themselves' against England at Twickenham: Team news, match preview and statistics for Saturday's Six Nations match.
I fancy Rachel Hunter. Don’t think it’s going to happen though! Removed

I don't see many problems for England, I dare say that the English women's team would give Scotland a run for their money. Removed

Really!, so the men have beat them once in 4 years, so what does that tell you?.
only way to resolve our differencies is the taunt that British troops perfomed worst in ww2, which is laughable, the Scots & English knew that too.

the honour of the army retreat to hold up the Germans in dunkirk retreat fell on the mainly English 2nd div

the English fought so well, especially against the Waffen SS, they were shot after they were overrun

I would love to see Scotland edge a classic. Head says England will maybe grab a close win. Heart says I would love to see Scotland joyful at the end. Head and heart say the return of the Six Nations is just brilliant!
I wouldn't. Come on England. Do it for all our children and women and men and for the Northumbria where the Scots raped and pillaged our people. Removed

Andrew Brace refereeing will add a bit of uncertainty to how the match will play out. Ireland's not so secret weapon!

Ah but it's Eng so it is not to be lauded. Imagine the headlines if "brave" Scotland or "tenacious" Ireland or "gritty" Wales had done it.

In Finn Russell Scotland have a man who haunts every Englishman’s dreams like William Wallace and Angus MacAskill before him. Time and time again England have been badly exposed by flair players like Russell which is why I predict a 50+ Win for the Bravehearts.

Timid, middle aged, white male office workers, blood pressures going thru the roof, over what may/may not happen in a ball game, escapism for their own mediocre lot. A match which has nothing to do with them quite frankly, played by old public school boy millionaires, working up an appetite for their dinner and copious amounts of beer before and after.
Could it get ANY more ridiculous?
It’s ok to be White. ????To the indigenous people of these lands this match symbolises more than sport. Removed

Straining upon the start. The game's afoot:
Follow your spirit, and upon this charge
Cry 'God for Harry, England, and Saint George!'

Ordinarily (in non-pandemic times) England home games at Twickenham, may be watched LIVE by the people of Ireland, Scotland, Wales and numerous other countries around the world, for free on terrestrial TV. It is only the people of England, who are excluded, and can not watch England play LIVE. They must pay SKY for the privilege. Then watch a second rate highlights show, hours later.
Ridiculous???
It is on live on ITV...please check your facts...idiot! Removed
By the way Monye - an average player who was only selected for the sake of tokenism, an even worse pundit for the same reason. Removed

"tokenism"
Can you qualify your vast knowledgeable rugby opinion by explaining why he's an average rugby pundit?.......or maybe there's a more insidious reason why you spouted your sweeping comments

I seem to remember him scoring an awful lot of tries in the premiership, maybe because he was a bit more than average, hence the caps.

What is the "Lol" it's like communicating with my 4 yr old niece.
I spout out game stats to qualify a particular game or if you get some troll spouting bile like a particular player/s had an opposing player in their pocket
For example last years stats on the 7-13 Eng victory proved many views that certain trolls refused to admit, now that's relevant because a lot of those players are still playing

OTS, blind optimism or ‘typical Scottish arrogance’? Just curious, that’s all......
@PiggytheDick, fair point pal :-) Removed
Wonder if 'Shoulder Boy' can get through a game without trying to break an opponents neck or start a fight. Hopefully the ref will be watching. Removed

And yet so many refs (including Nigel Owens), TMOs, citing commissioners and international coaches wouldnt agree with you. Wonder whose opinion we should take?!
well, I'll take my own opinion thanks, based on the matches and video replays I've watched of him being a dirty, petulant, little oik. And before you say I don't like him because he's English, I think his dad was a great player, especially in League (which I also follow). Just because the refs don't see it doesn't mean he's not a cheating little tawt. Would I have him in my team? NOT A CHANCE!!! Removed

Latest news - every Scotland player has just kacked their pants and are refusing to come out to play at twickers, England given the walkover... SRU has sent a litigation letter already by DHL.
We all know the English like to tackle from behind. Hoping for a reacharound. Removed
aye, tackle from behind and through the back door, BOD loves a bit of the dark brown stuff :-) Removed

I got home just now, in time to watch the rugby international. But they were doing this misguided "taking the knee" nonsense. I turned the set off. I can't be bothered to watch it, since they're politicising it.

They did the same with football so I stopped watching that too.

It's disgraceful to say you don't want racism, then include a racist gesture. It is absurd.
