England vs Scotland at Franklin’s Gardens, Northampton

The Scots first and England led a meagre 12-7 at half-time but in the second half the home side scored five tries.

England attacked first but Cameron Anderson, the Scottish outside centre intercepted a miss pass, and ran many metres to score. That was Scotland’s only score in the match as the lead lasted just four minutes. England were simply far too strong for 2019’s wooden spoonists.

The last try was spectacular. Scotland were attacking but England left wing Arron Reed got possession and raced over 90 metres to score.
