From tunnel scuffles to stray beer bottles and a healthy serving of hard-hitting rugby besides, the Calcutta Cup has showered us with gifts in recent years. Scotland have beaten England three times in a row in the Six Nations but trail their opponents in the standings after a highly controversial defeat, so they'll have plenty of frustrations to vent at Murrayfield today.

As usual, you can't take your eyes off Scotland. After nearly throwing away a 27-0 lead against Wales, they were denied a nailed-on victory over France by a refereeing call that was bewildering at best. As a result they're only third in the table, whereas England are second with two wins from two.

Steve Borthwick is expected to go physical for today's clash, so the return of Ollie Lawrence and George Martin could hardly have been timed better, though Alex Mitchell has joined Marcus Smith in the treatment room.

New father Kyle Steyn is back in the team for Gregor Townsend, who'll also be chuffed to have Blair Kinghorn in the lineup for the first time this tournament. Finn Russell, as ever, will expect to come in for some rough treatment from England's big boys, but will he get the last laugh again?
