  • Description

    RECORDING THEIR BIGGEST WIN FOR YEARS, ENGLAND'S RUGBY TEAM TODAY BEAT ARCH-RIVALS SCOTLAND BY 27 POINTS TO 14 TO REGAIN THE CALCUTTA CUP.

    PLAYING SOME OF THE BEST RUGBY ANY ENGLAND SIDE HAS PRODUCED FOR A LONG TIME, ENGLAND RAN OUT EASY WINNERS BY THREE GOALS TWO PENALTY GOALS, A TRY AND A DROPPED GOAL, TO SCOTLAND'S GOAL, TWO PENALTY GOALS AND A TRY.

    ENGLAND TOOK TIME TO SETTLE WHEN THE GAME OPENED AT TWICKENHAM, AND THEY WERE TRAILING WITH 8 POINTS TO SCOTLAND'S 11 AT HALF TIME.

    BUT IN THE SECOND HALF, ENGLAND STRUCK, WENT AHEAD AND EVER LOST THE INITIATIVE. SO COMPLETE WAS THE HOME TEAM'S DOMINATION IN THE LATE STAGES OF THE GAME THAT THEY SCORED ELEVEN POINTS IN THE LAST FIVE MINUTES, INCLUDING A TRY IN WHICH McFADYEAN TOUCHED DOWN AFTER BRILLIANT INTER-RUNNING WITH TWO OTHER MEN.

    DURING THE SECOND HALF, SCOTLAND NEVER ONCE CROSSED ENGLAND'S 25-YARD LINE.

    ENGLAND NOW SHARE TOP PLACE IN THE INTERNATIONAL TABLE AND, WITH A FINAL INTERNATIONAL FIXTURE AGAINST WALES, STAND A GOOD CHANCE OF WINNING THE CROWN.
