No pressure on Scotland

Eddie Jones might say England are ready but the pressure is off the Scots.

Their head coach Vern Cotter said: “I think it is great my players find themselves in the situation of being in the fourth game and playing for silverware. But it hasn’t been discussed.

“We want to keep improving and this is a good opportunity for us.

“But there is no added pressure. We already set high standards.”

England ready

Eddie Jones insists his England side are ready to equal world record for consecutive wins.

He’s said ahead of kick off: “We’ve had great preparation and we’re ready. They are well coached by Vern Cotter, they attack at the breakdown and they attack smartly.

“Today we have to make sure our support work is good and if it is then we will be in a good position.

“We’ve been pottering along but today you will see a much improved performance.”

Farrell warms up

Our man at Twickenham Alex Spink has tweeted an update after seeing Farrell in the flesh.

Sounds like he is one to watch with the strapped thigh.

Such an important boost for England to have Farrell playing – he is so good with the boot.

Owen Farrell will start for England today.

The fly-half had been a doubt after walking out of training yesterday with a leg injury.

Owen Farrell will be given until an hour before today’s 4pm kick-off to prove his fitness.

The England playmaker did not train yesterday at Twickenham, as team-mates put the final touches to their Calcutta Cup preparations.

With a world-record 18th successive win on the line, the management refused to give any details of his injury, believed to be a dead leg.

Asked how disruptive Farrell’s absence had been, assistant coach Paul Gustard replied: “Not at all.

“We have until before kick-off to make a decision, which means he has at least another 24 hours of recovery ahead of him.

“We’ll make a call as and when we know more.”
