Follow live coverage as England host Wales in a crunch Six Nations match at Twickenham on Saturday evening.

Defeat to Scotland in the opener at Murrayfield leaves little margin for error for today’s hosts and coach Eddie Jones knows nothing less than a win will do with tournament favorites Ireland and France still to come. They will have to do it without Manu Tuilagi, however, with the Sale center recalled only to later be ruled out by injury. Back row Courtney Lawes is back though and will captain the side while Ben Youngs must surpass Jason Leonard’s record as England’s most capped player as a replacement with Harry Randall continuing as starting scrum-half.

For Wales, Louis Rees-Zammit is the surprise omission with fit-again Josh Adams and Alex Cuthbert preferred on the wings. Number eight Taulupe Faletau will make his first international appearance for 11 months, having successfully proved his fitness following a long-term ankle injury.

Back out there

A return to action in a Scotland jersey for Mark Bennett at half-time – the injury-plagued center is on for Chris Harris, who has not re-emerged.

That brilliant Yoram Moefana score

That was a half of some brilliant rugby from both sides, but particularly France, and perhaps never better than in the build-up to this Yoram Moefana score.

TRY! Scotland 10-19 FRANCE (Gael Fickou try, 42 minutes)

Another pearler! Jonathan Danty decisively deposits Finn Russell on his rear-end with a brutal bump, and then charges away with angry intensity. France swing the ball wide, Yoram Moefana checking as he takes a bouncing ball but gathers momentum.

France look short of numbers as they look to the right, but Gael Fickou will do it himself! He out-runs Nick Haining on the angle, brushes aside Ali Price and just about squeezes over by the corner-flag. Melvyn Jaminet converts – an extremely costly five minutes for Scotland.

Scotland 10-12 France, 40 minutes

France play to width, Yoram Moefana nearly putting Stuart Hogg in trouble with his footwork and then offloading nicely for Melvyn Jaminet, who somehow grasps it with a single hand.

It goes wrong soon after, but France have a penalty from the lineout drive on the right. Cameron Woki is warned for his rather forceful reaction to a Scot’s grasping of his shirt, but there is nothing in the incident to warrant over-turning the penalty. France will attack from on the edge of the Scottish 22 with the final play of the half.

Scotland 10-12 France, 38 minutes

That would have been an all-timer, but Stuart Hogg drops it! It’s a moment of audacious brilliance from Scotland, playing themselves out of trouble, Hogg jinking, Finn Russell dancing and eventually Duhan van der Merwe storms through a great gaping space to breach the line.

He combines with Chris Harris, who has three outside him as he bears down on the last defender. Harris hurls for Hogg, the widest of them, who had the freedom of Edinburgh had he been able to grab a pass that just drifts agonizingly away from him. Oh, what might have been!

Scotland 10-12 France, 37 minutes

Almost again! Finn Russell slithers through a half-hole and produces what looks to be an outstanding off-load, but it evades Darcy Graham’s hands from him.
