    Agreed, Scotland failed to fire in both attack & defence. In a way that's the beauty of the Six Nations, you need to hit the ground running. Unfortunately for Scotland, they are now behind the eight ball. England came to life in the 2nd half, & looked really good. However, injuries are going to test their depth this campaign.
