SCOTLAND Vs. ENGLAND 38-38 (DRAW) by Kris Scott
Arguably one of the biggest games in the Six Nations Championship is the Scotland v. England Calcutta Cup game. This is due to the rivalry, between the two countries and their national pride.
|England (31) 38|
|Tries: Nowell, Curry, Launchbury, May, Ford Cons: Farrell 4 Ford Pen: Farrell|
|Scotland (7) 38|
|Tries: McInally, Graham 2, Bradbury, Russell, Johnson Cons: Russell 2, Laidlaw 2|
13 Minutes into the game and England have scored three tries that’s when the fear sets in and we have that doubt the cup we currently have will be taken from us but rightfully so as Scotland were terrible.
It wasn’t until the second half and the game turned around. Scotland caught up to a now falling apart English side playing to Scotland’s advantage waking the lion within.
Scotland fought back reaching England’s current score of 31 which they maintained for a few minutes until Scotland scored another stoater gaining the lead finally with 38 to 31.
On the 82nd minute England scored their final try with a successful conversion getting the draw. From a horrific first half to an incredible comeback in the second it’s fair to say that Scotland done amazingly and deserve to keep the Calcutta cup in their cabinet for another year. Overall the Six Nations didn’t have a good year, but onwards and upwards as we have the world cup in a few months time.
