  1. England’s chance to make amends

    England v Scotland (19:30 GMT)

    If England win today, this Grand Slam will taste even sweeter after the way France took the title from them last year.

    World Rugby player of the year Jessy Tremouliere scored a last-minute try to help les bleues win 18-17 and end England’s hopes of defending the Grand Slam.

  2. Post update

    England v Scotland (19:30 GMT)

    The Six Nations have got hold of a graphic showing how each side’s table position has changed year-on-year. There’s something weirdly satisfying about it. Watch and enjoy.

  3. ‘Scotland are hard-working’

    England v Scotland (19:30 GMT)

    England defeated the Scots 43-8 in this fixture last year, but head coach Simon Middleton is taking nothing for granted.

    “Scotland will be ultra-competitive this weekend. They’re a hard-working side and will be looking to finish their tournament on a high.” he said.

    “I want to see us perform at a higher level for an extended period against Scotland – if we deliver this then I’m sure we’ll get the result that we want.”

  4. Back to the day job

    England v Scotland (19:30 GMT)

    England hooker Amy Cokayne is pretty inspiring too. Representing her country in rugby is just not enough for the 22-year-old.

    She’s on an elite play squad agreement rather than a full-time contract and combines her international career with a job in the RAF.

  5. ‘You can do whatever you want to do’

    Before we watch some international rugby,here’s a look at a brilliant initiative happening at grassroots level.

  6. ‘One day we’ll fill Twickenham’

    England v Scotland (19:30 GMT)

    England have had over 10,000 at Twickenham in previous games, but England fly-half Katy Daley-Mclean is aiming higher than that.

    When the 33-year-old made her England debut against Scotland in 2007, fewer than 300 people were there to watch.

    In Exeter last weekend, the Red Roses thrashed Italy in front of a crowd of 10,545.

    Daley-Mclean described that experience as “overwhelming” and spoke to BBC Sport about the rapid rise of women’s rugby. You can read more of what she said here.

  9. Scotland’s Six Nations so far

    England v Scotland (19:30 GMT)

    Scotland are bottom of the table after losing all four of their games so far.

    They came close against Wales, but were defeated with the last kick of the game after a late converted try.

    “The team played well last Friday against Wales. The result
    was hugely disappointing, but they put in a strong performance,” said head coach Shade Munro.

    “England are
    incredibly strong, but we have been doing everything we can to prepare for the
    match.”

  10. Rampant Red Roses

    England v Scotland (19:30 GMT)

    Ireland 7-51 England

    England 41-26 France

    Wales 12-51 England

    England 55-0 Italy

    You could say it’s been a dominant Six Nations so far for England – the only fully professional side in the competition.

    The Red Roses have scored over 50 points in three of their four wins and have crossed the whitewash once every 9.7 minutes on average.

    Winger Jess Breach has been the most prolific, having scored seven tries in the first four rounds.
