England have won the Calcutta Cup with a 13-6 victory over Scotland at Murrayfield.

Wild weather conditions made it tough for both sides at Murrayfield and made for a poor spectacle but Eddie Jones’ team came out on top while Scotland were left to rue their mistakes.

Owen Farrell had put England ahead with a penalty, with Adam Hastings levelling shortly after, and the score was locked at 3-3 going into the final quarter.

In a decisive moment, Scotland captain Stuart Hogg lost the ball under the posts and Farrell looked to have capitalised but from the resulting five-metre scrum, Ellis Genge powered over.

Farrell converted and soon after he slotted his second penalty to make it 13-3 and all but ensure a win.

Hastings scored a late penalty and Scotland took a bonus point but there was no late drama and Townsend and his players are still waiting on their first win of the tournament.
