    Scotland have a tough assignment as they face off with the high-flying English at Twickenham.

    England are coming off a very impressive victory over the All Blacks would be confident of making a real impression in this years 6 Nations tournament. They should get off to a winning start with an average Scotland coming to London on Saturday.

    Most interestingly, Billy Twelvetress has been named at inside center, replacing the injured Manu Tuilagi. Outside of that selection the English squad looks sound and should perform.

    The ex-kiwi Sean Maitland is an interesting addition to Scotland and will be expected to perform after his fast introduction to European rugby. Maitland played 54 matches with the mighty Crusaders and should really standout for the Scots.

    This will be a one-sided contest with the English just too strong all across the park. England to win by 15.

    England off to perfect start

    England have started 2013 on the right foot with a 38-18 victory over Scotland at Twickenham.

    The four try effort was comprehensive from the hosts as they dominated possesion for the entire match and were fully deserving of the result.

    The match started out with both sides aiming for the sticks before convert Sean Maitland scored on debut for the visitors. But England found their rhythm before the break and built a 19-11 lead.

    England then strode away from Scotland with 3 second half tries to leave their coach Stuart Lancaster well satisfied.

    In fact, Lancaster's main problem is now having too many options. Billy Twelvetrees stepped into the no.12 jersey and was a standout, winning man of the match honors. With Manu Tuilagi coming back from injury Lancaster has a tough choice on his hands.

    Next weeks match against Ireland in Dublin now looms as must watch rugby.

    Cons: Farrell 3
