Last year’s Six Nations meeting between England and Scotland was easily the most entertaining of the 2019 tournament, with honours even in a thrilling 38-38 draw. It’s all set to be a cracking week 2 rematch today and you can watch all the action as it happens with our Scotland vs England live stream guide.
Scotland vs England – where and when
This Six Nations clash takes place on Saturday, February 8 at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh.
Kick-off is at 4.45pm GMT, local time. If you’re looking to watch the match in the US and Canada it’s a 8.45am PT, 11.45am ET morning start, while for Aussie rugby fans it’s a 3.45am AEDT in the early hours of Sunday morning.
With both England and Scotland experiencing disappointment in the opening games of this campaign, expect this to be another hard fought Calcutta Cup showdown.
Scotland gave a decent account of themselves in their 19-12 defeat against Ireland in Dublin last weekend. They ultimately found it hard to break down a strong defence but will rue a costly dropped ball by skipper Stuart Hogg when the game was delicately poised. Coach Gregor Townsend has largely kept faith with the same set of players, with only Nick Haining being switched out in favour of back-rower Magnus Bradbury.
While England showed some fight to drag themselves back into the game in the second half, having trailed 27-0 at one point, Eddie Jones and his players will have to dig deep to rectify their shoddy first-half showing. Jones has rung the changes with with Willi Heinz, Lewis Ludlam, Mako Vunipola and George Kruis all coming into this side for this crucial face-off in Edinburgh.
