16 minutes: Scotland earn a penalty that looks to be within kicking range and presents Adam Hastings with the chance to cancel out Owen Farrell’s earlier kick. But, with gusting wind having caused Farrell to miss an earlier effort, instead of opting to go for the three points that would restore parity, Stuart Hogg goes for the corner. Scotland win the line-out but then lose possession and the chance goes begging.
34 minutes: With half time approaching and Scotland having failed to profit from the wind that has been at their backs, Hogg despatches another penalty into touch. The ball is gathered at the ensuing line-out but the drive for the whitewash ends with Rory Sutherland being penalised for going off his feet. England run the clock down and the hosts reach the break without scoring.
41 minutes: Scotland resume with intent and Sutherland makes a thundering run that carries play deep into the England 22 and sets up a spell of sustained pressure. Hogg boots another penalty into touch and Scott Cummings gathers the throw to create the platform for another multiphase effort that yields a penalty. This time Hastings goes for the sticks and ties the scores.
69 minutes: George Ford hits a clever kick that squirts off the sodden pitch and bounces towards the Scotland line. Hogg covers back but misjudges the bounce and is fortunate to apply downward pressure with his stomach as Farrell pounces. From the ensuing scrum, England set up a surge that ends with Ellis Genge powering over. Farrell converts and five minutes later boots a penalty that looks to have made the game safe.
77 minutes: Scotland have a chance to retaliate with a 25 metre penalty. Needing two scores, Hastings goes for goal and cuts the deficit to seven points, meaning the Scots can still draw if they can claim a converted try. That sets up a rousing finale. With the clock ticking towards 80 minutes, Ali Price kicks from his 22 and a subsequent knock-on hands England a scrum that gives them the chance to see out the remaining seconds before Ford clatters the ball into the crowd to spark celebrations in the away camp.
