Scotland 0 England 20

ENGLAND put their RBS 6 Nations campaign back on track with a comprehensive victory over Scotland.

Luther Burrell and Mike Brown scored a try apiece while Owen Farrell booted a penalty and Danny Care slotted a snap drop goal.

But the Murrayfield pitch had its say as both Farrell and Greig Laidlaw missed two penalties each.

England entered the Murrayfield clash needing a win to keep alive their Championship hopes after a 26-24 defeat to France in Paris last week.

Billy Twelvetrees and Jonny May both started for England while Ben Morgan produced another cameo performance from the bench in the 70th minute, replacing Billy Vunipola.
