The first half saw Scotland go in 13-10 ahead after two early tries from both sides and a hotly contested game, where it looked like the Scots could finally break their Twickenham hoodoo.
After the two sides came out for the second half it was a different story though. Scotland were penned inside their own 22 area for long periods, without seeing any of the ball.
Three minutes in, George Ford made that pressure tell, scoring a try and adding the extras.
Scotland continued to be second best in the second half, defending admirably but having no sight of England’s line. Mike Brown thought he’d scored another try, but it was disallowed for a forward pass in the build-up.
With five minutes to go, Jack Nowell sealed the win with a deserved try and England sit top of the Six Nations table, with the title in their hands going into the last game.
