How Twitter reacted to England landing the Calcutta Cup

| 07.02.2016

England’s new dawn under Eddie Jones started with a win in the Six Nations, as they beat Scotland 15-9 at Murrayfield in the Six Nations.

The new coach will be pleased that the first-win monkey is off his back so quickly, but witnessed a scrappy affair from his new side.

Here’s the best of Twitter’s take on the game, as England landed the Calcutta Cup:

George Kruis overpowered the Scottish defence to break the deadlock

Although two Grieg Laidlaw penalties brought Scotland back to within touching distance

The early action had some observers commenting on the lack of quality

Errors from both sides made the game a tough watch, but it was England that remained in charge

England’s second try, from Jack Nowell, turned the screw

An Owen Farrell penalty increased England’s lead

While some Scottish players found strange places to make a list

Another Scottish penalty threatened to spark the drama, but in the end, this stat summed up the occasion

It's not just cricket that interests him though, with football, golf, tennis and any American sport not played on ice all high on his list of favourites.
