It is 36 years since Scotland won at Twickenham, but even a big home victory won't do England any favours unless Ireland find a way past Wales in Cardiff.

The Scots were victorious in Edinburgh last year, their first success over the Auld Enemy since 2008. But England have shown huge attacking intent in their home victories over France and Italy, bagging 14 tries, and put 60 points on the Scots the last time they visited.

Scotland have won just seven of 49 away matches in the Six Nations - five of those in Italy - and have fallen at least ten points short of the handicap in their last five road matches.
