Match Commentary

85'Farrell converts. That is full-time. 61-21 final score. England join the All Blacks world record on 18 successive victories, and of course retain the Six Nations. It's the most points they've scored under Eddie Jones, and the most in the Six Nations since Italy in 2001. Emphatic.
84'TRY! Care gets a second. What an emphatic finish. What a way to win back-to-back Six Nations titles.

45'TMO says it's just a late tackle, wasn't high or dangerous. So Scotland get a penalty, no card for Hughes.
45'Nathan Hughes has smashed Tommy Seymour after the Scotland wing chipped through. Looked late. There's a bit of a melee now with Scotland players releasing a bit of frustration. TMO is having a look.

41'Back underway! Can Scotland possibly stop England joining the All Blacks on 18 consecutive Test victories?
41'+130-7 End of first half
40'Jonathan Joseph has already run 104 metres with the ball. Scotland's best, who was only on the field for 18 minutes, is Stuart Hogg with 14 metres.
40'Take a look if you dare Scotland fans at the first half stats.

37'Farrell brings up 30 for England.

25'TRY! It's Joseph again who runs another superb line in midfield for his second.
25'20-0 Conversion - Owen Farrell , England

24'Russell drops the ball and England play on with advantage. Nowell kicks through to Seymour who hurries it into touch.
23'More bad news for Scotland, their star fullback Stuart Hogg has failed his HIA and won't return. It looks like Pyrgos will play at 9 and Ali Price shifts out to the wing.
22'Scotland awarded a penalty. Captain on captain. Dylan Hartley pinged for a neck roll at the ruck on Barclay.
22'Long stoppage now. Mark Bennett, who has been on a few minutes for Stuart Hogg, needs a stretcher. Scrum-half Henry Pyrgos is going to go on the wing.
22'Substitute on - Henry Pyrgos , Scotland
22'Player substituted - Mark Bennett , Scotland
21'Russell with a shocking loopy pass on his own line, Joseph goes incredibly close to hauling it in but knocks it on. Silly stuff there. Scotland get lucky.

18'Player substituted - Stuart Hogg , Scotland
18'Substitute on - Mark Bennett , Scotland
17'Scotland have possession in England's half. Russell goes for a little run but loses the ball in the tackle.
16'Second-row, back-row, wing. What can't Maro do?
16'Substitute on - Anthony Watson , England
16'Player substituted - Elliot Daly , England
15'Farrell 3/3 now. England up 13-0.
15'13-0 Penalty goal - Owen Farrell , England
14'England awarded a penalty at the ruck. Farrell will line up another easy shot at goal.
14'Brown's first throw in since his spell in the naughty chair is wobbly and Hughes collects it for England.
13'Jones chips through but England tidy up easily. Brown is back on the field.
13'Russell tries a drop goal but its charged down. Watson regains possession for Scotland.
12'You sense Scotland are running down the clock until they a restored to 15 men. Keeping it very tight.
12'Drop goal-missed
11'Scotland patient in attack. Hogg makes a little break before tripping over his own feet.

3'5-0 Try - Jonathan Joseph , England
2'TMO says "the landing is on top of the back" rather than the head so Brown gets relatively lucky. Its a yellow card for Fraser Brown.
2'Fraser Brown was the tackler, he lifted Daly through the horizontal. This could be well be red! Huge moment early.
2'Daly smashed late on England's first real chance with the ball, might be something for the TMO to have a look at.
2'Yellow card - Fraser Brown , Scotland
2'Player substituted - Elliot Daly , England
2'Substitute on - Anthony Watson , England
1'Ben Youngs clears well from the re-start. Scotland have a line-out in their own half.
1'Finn Russell gets us underway!
1'The scene is set!
1'Joe Marler first to run out to Twickenham. 50th international cap for the Harlequins prop.
1'Let's not forget Scotland who could take the Six Nations down to the wire with victory today. The last time they beat England at Twickenham was in 1983. Martyn Thomas caught up with a few of those players
1'And he can still kick a goal by the looks ...
1'For those of you fretting over keeping Owen Farrell in your fantasy team, DON'T WORRY. He's in. No late changes to either side.
