England back on track

EDINBURGH - England got their Six Nations campaign back on track with a crushing 20-0 Calcutta Cup victory over Scotland at Murrayfield.

Luther Burrell and Mike Brown, as they'd done in defeat by France last weekend, both scored tries as the 132nd edition of international rugby union's oldest fixture saw Scotland rendered pointless by England for the first time since a 15-0 loss at Murrayfield in 1978.

Had not fly-half Owen Farrell missed several goalkicks, the final scoreline might have been even more lopsided.

"Losing to France last week was massively frustrating and we wanted to show a reaction this week," Brown told the BBC.

"We've definitely done that. I'm ecstatic to score a try. The pitch isn't in the best condition but I thought we played at a great tempo."

For Scotland, it was a match to forget, with replacement scrum-half Chris Cusiter admitting: "Nothing worked. We couldn't get anything going.

"It is massively disappointing. The setpiece was malfunctioning and the line-out wasn't going well.

"If that is not working then you won't win a Six Nations game."
