The English and Scottish teams prepared at Twickenham Stadium, in London, on Friday ahead of their game on Saturday. Scotland say they will try to change their disappointing away game record, while England hope to beat Wales to the trophy.

"In long tournaments like this you can almost want to get to the end and think about getting home and the rest of it, so our focus this week has massively been on enjoying the fact that this is our last week together and getting excited about being back at Twickenham," said England hooker Jamie George.

"It's Scotland v England at Twickenham, and that's it, and that's the way we're looking at it. We're treating this as a one-off game and, yeah, all that history goes out the window," said Scotland captain Stuart McInally. "It's 80 minutes, it's a green pitch and it's two teams there. Two teams who are just going to go at it."

England and Scotland have one of world sport's longest rivalries. The first Calcutta Cup, going to the winner each time they play, was awarded in 1879.
