Althought the odds look stacked against them, Kelly Brown believes Scotland can do the job against England
Flanker Kelly Brown insists Scotland should not be written off before their trip to face England in their next RBS 6 Nations match.
Everything already points to a fourth win on the spin for Martin Johnson’s men with Scotland losing all three of their opening games and not having won south of the border for 28 years.
But the Saracens star believes all of the pressure will be on the home side when Andy Robinson’s side make the trip on March 13.
Brown won his 43rd cap in the 21-18 defeat to Ireland and admits Scotland have got to do their talking on the pitch.
Their final match of the tournament against Italy at Murrayfield has already been billed as a wooden spoon decider but Brown is convinced all is not lost.
“England will be going for a Grand Slam and Twickenham will be jumping but we’ve got the motivation that we can put a spoke in their wheel,” said Brown.
“We are a very, very proud team who are never going to give up and say ‘that’s that’.
“The nation deserves a team that is going to keep on fighting and we did, to the extent we got back into the game and could have snuck it at the end against Ireland.
“We’ve just got to back up what we practiced. We highlighted the fact all week that we needed a good start against Ireland and we didn’t do it.
“That is something we’ll look at again in aiming to work out a solution.”
