O2 Inside Line - Season 4 Episode 5

England took heart from their narrow loss to France last weekend and have been in camp preparing for Scotland and the Calcutta Cup. Hosted by the brilliant Alex Payne, this latest episode of O2 Inside Line gives superb insight and build up for the match.

Despite the loss to the French at the weekend, England have kept faith in the same starting XV for this Saturday’s Murrayfield clash with Scotland.

“It’s good to be able to select the same players and they are all determined to put last week’s result behind us and build on the performance,” said head coach Stuart Lancaster.

“Scotland will be hugely motivated by their defeat in Dublin and, as we found two years ago, Murrayfield is a tough place to play,” he added.

England have won the last four Calcutta Match encounters but will be wary of a Scotland team that contain the likes of Stuart Hogg, who is always willing to attack from deep. In this week’s O2 Inside Line Player Analysis features Hogg himself, as they look at ways to cut down his space.

There’s also a look back at a great bit of play by Billy Vunipola, and then Player Cam gives us a look into a gym session, where Brad Barritt casually bench presses roughly 120kg’s.

There is good banter between the players when they talk about who would play them in a film, and then we learn about the Head of Stadium Events for the RFU, Nigel Cox, and what his role involves.

Kickoff at Murrayfield on Saturday is at 5pm (local)

England team:
Mike Brown, Jack Nowell, Luther Burrell, Billy Twelvetrees, Jonny May, Owen Farrell,  Danny Care, Joe Marler, Dylan Hartley, Dan Cole, Joe Launchbury, Courtney Lawes, Tom Wood, Chris Robshaw, Billy Vunipola Replacements: Tom Youngs, Mako Vunipola, Henry Thomas, Dave Attwood, Ben Morgan, Lee Dickson, Brad Barritt, Alex Goode

Scotland team:
Stuart Hogg, Tommy Seymour, Alex Dunbar, Matt Scott, Sean Lamont, Duncan Weir, Greig Laidlaw, Ryan Grant, Ross Ford, Moray Low, Tim Swinson, Jim Hamilton, Ryan Wilson, Chris Fusaro, David Denton Replacements: Scott Lawson, Alasdair Dickinson, Geoff Cross, Jonny Gray, Johnnie Beattie, Chris Cusiter, Duncan Taylor, Max Evans
