England vs Scotland rugby: Kick-off time, TV channel, live stream free, teams for Six Nations 2021 game TODAY

ENGLAND are looking to get off to a winning start against Scotland as they set out to defend their Six Nations title.

Eddie Jones' Red Rose were 13-6 winners against the Scots at Murrayfield to regain the Calcutta Cup on their way to last year's championship.

But they'll want no repeat of their last meeting at Twickenham in which they threw away a 31-0 lead to trail before a face-saving George Ford try secured a 38-38 draw.

    Reigning Six Nations champs England get their 2021 campaign underway against Scotland at Twickenham later.

    The Red Rose stars will need no reminder of the danger their opponents possess after suffering an almighty scare in the same fixture two years ago.

    The teams drew 38-38 despite England surging into a 31-0 half-time lead and Scotland leading 38-31 with the clock in the red.

    But George Ford's try at the very death saved England from a first defeat to the Auld Enemy at HQ since 1983 – a record Eddie Jones' men are again defending today.
