England Name Side for Scotland Clash

Imagine your nation's first game of a beloved tournament such as the Six Nations being a Calcutta cup clash during a pandemic... Pressure much? I'm glad these pro's have experience playing under such conditions because I, for one, would be a crumbling mess under the anticipation heading into this clash. You can also feel the hype growing by the hour with each big announcement, especially if you're in the Scotland camp. Marler, Launchbury and Underhill all dropping out early on, that's a pretty nasty spine to snap... Regardless, England have put together an incredibly impressive side heading into this match-up; even though, like many, I'm a little miffed that Willis has been overlooked again, you cannot deny that a back row mix of Wilson, Curry, Vunipola and Earl is pretty special.
