    In France, Les Bleues bounced back from their defeat to England with a convincing 45-10 victory against Italy.

  2. Last week

    Scotland v England (13:30 GMT)

    After finishing bottom of the table without a win in last season’s Six Nations, Scotland got off to a more promising start against Ireland in the opening round of this year’s tournament.

    The Scots threatened to overhaul a 13-0 lead but just came up short, losing 18-14 in the end and picking up a bonus point.

    England got their toughest challenge out of the way early. The Red Roses are now favourites to win the Grand Slam again after grinding out a 19-13 win against France in front of a packed crowd in Pau.

  3. Last year

    Scotland v England (13:30 GMT)

    Scotland faced England at Twickenham in the final round of the competition last year and it was not a pleasant day for the visitors.

    The Red Roses sealed the Grand Slam with an 80-0 victory, running in 12 tries.

  4. Storms, postponements and cold showers

    Scotland v England (13:30 GMT)

    It’s not been the most straightforward weekend for the Women’s Six Nations.

    English World Cup winner Tamara Taylor described the fact that this game is behind closed doors, a decision that was taken for fan safety, as “super sad”.

    And the Irish Rugby Football Union apologised to Wales when they could only have cold showers after playing in a hail storm.

  5. Better late than never

    Scotland v England (13:30 GMT)

    The anticipation has had plenty of time to bubble over for this one.

    The game was supposed to be played on Sunday but that pesky Storm Ciara got in the way.

    So here we are, ready for a Women’s Six Nations game on a Monday. It’s at Murrayfield instead of Scotstoun and no fans have been allowed into the ground, but both teams have made it to Edinburgh through the wind and rain and we are good to go.
