Having held off a spirited fightback by Wales and started their Six Nations campaign with a victory, Scotland were left furious after being denied a match-winning try last time out against France. Coach Gregor Townsend will hope his players can now channel that frustration and continue their excellent recent run of form against England.

Scotland have won their past three Six Nations encounters against the Auld Enemy, with Finn Russell producing an outstanding display last year as they secured a 29-23 win at Twickenham. Scottish fans will hope Russell can once again pull the strings against an England side that has relied on resiliency, work-rate and determination to win their opening two games. 

England edged past Italy by three points and then beat Wales by two points but coach Steve Borthwick has bemoaned his side’s lack of power. He will hope that is rectified against Scotland. Manu Tuilagi and Ollie Lawrence are both available after injury, as is the hard-hitting Leicester forward George Martin.

Line-ups:

Scotland: Kinghorn, Steyn, Jones, Tuipulotu, Van der Merwe, Russell (co-capt), White; Schoeman, Turner, Fagerson, Gilchrist, Cummings, Ritchie, Darge (co-capt), Dempsey.

Replacements: Ashman, Hepburn, Millar-Mills, Skinner, Christie, Horne, Healy, Redpath.

England: Furbank, Freeman, Slade, Lawrence, Daly; Ford, Care; Genge, George (capt), Cole, Itoje, Chessum, Roots, Underhill, Earl.

Replacements: Dan, Marler, Stuart, Martin, Cunningham-South, Spencer, Smith, Feyi-Waboso.
