Make no mistake about it, this is the game that every Scotland player wants to play in.
Some people will try and downplay it, but playing against England is different than every other Test match and is the pinnacle.
And although Scotland head into the match off the back of a loss in Dublin, I think they will have taken a lot from that improved showing.
Everyone will look at Stuart Hogg dropping the ball over the line, but that is probably an as uncharacteristic mistake as you will get and overall I thought he played outstandingly.
There were a few eyebrows raised when he was named captain - certainly not by me - and in Dublin you could see the way he led on the pitch and the way he communicated well with his team and the referee was great.
Hogg sorry for 'schoolboy error' ??— Sky Sports Rugby Union (@SkySportsRugby) February 1, 2020
??? Scotland captain Stuart Hogg ?????????????? has apologised for the incredible "schoolboy" gaffe that cost his side as they lost 19-12 to Ireland.
The Shaun Edwards affect as France beat England last Sunday was massive. He is so relentless and intense and England got a bit of shock out there in Paris and didn’t know what to do.
I will be intrigued to see what happens on Saturday as the two old enemies battle it out for the Calcutta Cup, but I do feel that all the pressure is on England.
Scotland always play well at Murrayfield. If you look at the win in 2018 and the second half at Twickenham last year, then we know we can score tries against England and I think individually, a number of the Scots are getting back to the top of their game
For example, it was great to see Rory Sutherland come back into the fold after a couple of years out against Ireland and really scrummage well at loosehead - the tight five will again be key this coming weekend
It will be fiery, intense and enthralling and we would not want it any other way!
