Scotland 6-13 England, Murrayfield Stadium

Ellis Genge was the only try-scorer in the game as England regain Calcutta Cup with a 6-13 win over Scotland in tough conditions at Murrayfield Stadium on Saturday.

This is England's first win in the tournament after their defeat to France in the opening game as they take their tally to five points while Scotland continue to remain at fifth place.

Once again Stuart Hogg was on the wrong side of things as his hesitation under the posts led to a scrum for England which Genge ensured they went past the try line and it proved to be the decisive factor in the game.

The match was played in awful weather condition with Owen Farrell's first penalty attempt going wide due to strong winds but he made amends in the 11th minute when he kicked a three-pointer to get England off the mark.

Another Farrell penalty went wide as both teams were finding it tough to cope up with the conditions at Murrayfield ensuring the first half finished with a slender 0-03 lead for the visitors.

Scotland were awarded a penalty six minutes into the second half for an England offside and Adam Hastings accepted in gracefully allowing the hosts to level the scores. The decisive moment came in the final 10 minutes when Hogg looked to gather a kick and ended up conceding a scrum five-metre from the try line allowing Genge to power his way through and Farrell improved it to provide Eddie Jones' men some comfort with a seven point lead.

Farrell and Hastings traded penalties in the final 10 minutes as Scotland managed to get a losing bonus point while England registered their first win of the tournament to revive their Six Nations campaign.
