Regardless of what occurred on the 5th, there had been a noticeable increase in tension between us and our Scottish friends during and since the independence campaign which manifested itself on the 5th.
On the 14th of March we will be hosting the Scots at Twickenham as part of the magnificent six nations tournament. I'm sure the Scottish players and fans will be getting a very 'warm' welcome from the English players and their fans.
I personally can't wait - lets sort this out on the field of play rather than on our keyboards.
Twickenham, 14th of March - put it in your diary. It's going to be a scorcher of a game!

Yep, looking forward to it: always a wonderful occasion, regardless of who wins (although I'd prefer it was Scotland ). Looking forward to the football match in Glasgow later this month too - should also be a cracker

That thought occurred to me. It would be great to stuff the sheep stealing Pictish horde, although our selection continues to confuse me. I like Jonny May but he should not be picked on the wing he comes inside to readily. Ashton should be back in IMHO.
Lets hope England send them homewards to think again whoever we pick

It's also Scotland v England in a football friendly on 18th Nov.
Let's just hope none of our sensitive Caledonian friends fire any rascist or offensive remarks at the English.

I'd agree with that. I like Ashton, hopefully Lancaster will have the side settled by then. It will be interesting to see how Attwood does if he plays against the Kiwis on Saturday too.
As James said, it'll be a cracking game. I'm hopeful that we'll be just that bit too strong for them, but the jocks do have a habit of raising their game against us, and they've bitten us on the backside more than once in the past, so we mustn't take them for granted.

Try again Tom. I'm still waiting to find out any benefit of Brexit or what could have been done to give us some benefit. more
