England vs Scotland Six Nations: Eddie Jones wants his side to create hostility on the pitch to get revenge for last year’s defeat

England head coach Eddie Jones wants to make sure there is ‘hostility’ on the pitch when Scotland come to Twickenham on Saturday.

Jones wants revenge over Scotland in the Six Nations after losing to them last year at Murrayfield.

England will be in with a chance of winning the Six Nations title if Wales slip up against Ireland.

Even if there is nothing to play for but the Calcutta Cup, that is motivation enough to try and get one over on the ‘auld enemy’.

“Every game against Scotland has extra on it,” said Jones. “I think they have a healthy dislike of the English and we would certainly like to reciprocate the welcome we got up there last year.”

The head coach, though, does not expect the aggression his side faced at Murrayfield a year ago to be matched at the notoriously polite Twickenham.

“It’s nice, isn’t it?’ he said of the national stadium. “It’s all leather patches and brogue shoes. You don’t get people telling you where to go, you don’t get people spitting on you, you don’t get people grabbing you round the head.

“So we’ll make sure the hostility is on the field. We saw how they carried on last year after they beat us. I remember everything that was said.”
