Scotland boss Andy Robinson tried to play down the significance of the Calcutta Cup clash which will see him take charge against the country he coached for two years.
Robinson was one of Sir Clive Woodward’s chief lieutenants in the 2003 World Cup triumph but his time in the Twickenham hotseat ended in disappointment when he was sacked in 2006.
But revenge to Robinson is far less important than ending his three game RBS 6 Nations losing streak and has called another huge defensive performance.
He said: “It is the next match. Any time that Scotland wins is very special.
“Winning is a special thing. We've not achieved that in our last four matches, but we've got ourselves into good positions and it's now about us being ruthless and being able to take the next step.
“That means we have to work hard for the whole 80 minutes.
“A key aspect for us is to stop England scoring. It's sometimes good to reflect on the past.
“The defensive efforts of Scotland at Murrayfield in the last two Calcutta Cup matches have been fantastic.”
