Scotland vs. England: 6 Players with a Point to Prove in Six Nations Clash

Before the championship started, I boldly predicted Scotland would beat England at Murrayfield. Based on both sides’ performances in Round 1 of the Six Nations, that now seems unlikely.

England were very good, if not brilliant, in Paris, and were unfortunate not to have killed France off.

Scotland, on the other hand, were abject. So both sides will take the turf at Murrayfield with question marks hanging over them.

Scott Johnson has rolled the dice, dropping his skipper and leaving British and Irish Lion Richie Gray out of the 22 altogether, while Stuart Lancaster has chosen to stick, not twist.

Can England scrub out that slovenly start? Can Scotland possibly play as badly again?

Here are the men with the most to prove on Saturday.
