History! The Scots finished on 38 without a win in England, winning (11-6) in a tough match on Saturday, but where they found a perfect game plan they were able to implement until the end.
In terms of passion, we’ll be far from the crazy comeback of 2019, where, 31-0 at half-time for XV de la Rose, an impossible 38-38 draw was born that we thought would be remembered to come. for the years to come.
Less than two years later, the Scots have done even better, at least in terms of results and history, with this well-deserved success.
Faced with the winners of the 2020 edition, Scotland reaffirmed last year’s beautiful promises when they lost their first two matches in Ireland and against England, before winning the next three in their only defeat to France (28-17). Won by defeating. in Wales.
Even more than the victory, it was the impression of supremacy inflicted by Greg Townsend’s men, seldom so quick and tumultuous against the English, that impressed.
XV’s pack at the Chardon put the English forward under the extinguisher and the game at the foot of Finn Russell and Stuart Hogg allowed a discreet possession of the field, which knocked the English down.
Eddie Jones’ men, who still lacked the five elements of choice, stammered their attacking game, never managing to break through the deep blue defensive curtain.

A few minutes earlier, the same van der Merwe was just a few centimeters away from recovering a brilliant rebound of a brilliant pass into the foot of Russell (28th) in in-goal, which should have been tried earlier.
The only real fear for the Scots was this yellow card at the end of the first period (38th) against the same Russell, which had the unfortunate reflection of dragging his leg for a voluntary crotchpied on an opponent.
A numerical advantage that the British would not have taken advantage of, nor have they been able to tell the difference in the last ten minutes when the KO was in the air on either side.
England would have to rebound very quickly by getting the Italians right at home by the French in the tournament’s opening (10–50).
Scotland will receive Wales before heading to Paris to challenge the Blues to a match that already smells of powder.
