While Super Rugby Aotearoa will provide you with some live rugby from New Zealand this weekend, things are still not up and running in the northern hemisphere.

So tonight you’ve got the chance to watch two classic games between England and Scotland, back to back or you can take your choice.

Watch England v Scotland from 2019 at 6pm (UK time)

The first is that amazing, record-breaking match from Twickenham last year, where the match looked completely settled in favour of England who raced away to a 31-7 lead at half-time.

But then the unthinkable happened. Scotland, inspired by Finn Russell, produced the most incredible comeback in 6 Nations history, scoring five tries to storm into a 38-31 lead heading into the closing stages, only for England to snatch a draw at the death courtesy of George Ford.

The was Scotland’s first triumph since 2008, featuring Finn Russell’s ridiculous long-range flat pass for Huw Jones which ultimately created Sean Maitland’s try.

Jones was in great form that day and proved his worth by scoring a sensational solo try – Scotland’s third – just before half-time.

Scotland went on to win the match 25-13, to reclaim the Calcutta Cup for the first time in a decade.
