England v Scotland, RBS Six Nations 2011

Event Review

Twickenham Stadium, 13th March 2011

England 22 – 16 Scotland

England’s final fixture at Twickenham in the RBS Six Nations 2011 saw them up against bitter rivals Scotland, with England still chasing a potential Grand Slam and Scotland aiming to avoid the wooden spoon. As the only other team still unbeaten in the tournament, England would face a tough test against the battle-hardened Scots in what promised to be a pulsating match between these old enemies at the home of rugby.

Following a fantastic win in the England v France match in the previous round, England were looking to continue their winning ways against a gritty Scottish side which were out to spoil England’s Grand Slam hopes in this year’s Six Nations Championship.

Our Official Twickenham Hospitality facility welcomed guests with a Champagne reception upon arrival at the contemporary elegance of the Twickenham restaurant.

There was air of excitement at Twickenham ahead of the game, with the corporate hospitality guests hoping for another impressive performance in the England v Scotland match as their hopes of an England Grand Slam in 2011 still burned brightly.

With the restaurant’s complimentary bar in full flow, guests took to their tables for a sumptuous four course luncheon at the Twickenham hospitality restaurant, courtesy of Jamie Oliver’s Fabulous Feasts.

For the England v Scotland match, Hospitalityfinder were delighted to invite current England Flanker Joe Worsley MBE as the guest speaker at the hospitality facility. As one of the most experienced players in this exciting young England side with 78 caps for his country, Worsley ranks highly among England fans and with an injury keeping him sidelined for theCalcutta Cup encounter, he Hospitalityfinder’s guests a marvellous insight into England’s historic rugby rivalry with the Scots.

With officially allocated RFU England v Scotland match tickets along the West Stand sidelines, Hospitalityfinder guests had an unrivalled view of the action out on the pitch. Both teams marched out directly in front of them as both sets of supporters helped their national anthems reverberate around this fantastic sporting arena.

The expectant crowd could sense from the intense look of the teams that both sides were clearly fully fired up heading into this intense RBS Six Nations Calcutta Cup showdown.

A shaky start from the hosts saw Scotland win an early penalty, which Chris Paterson readily dispatched between the Twickenham posts.

England were soon level with a penalty of their own, stroked through the posts by Hospitalityfinder ambassador and England No.10 Toby Flood, making no mistake after his previous attempt was hooked left of the upright.

Following some electrifying rugby in their previous Six Nations matches, England were being dragged into a scrappy encounter by a Scotland side determined to upset England’s ominous rhythm in the tournament.

England found themselves struggling at the breakdown after not committing enough players, with the resulting penalty allowing the Scottish to take the lead once more through Paterson.

England’s pressure told shortly before half-time allowing the impressive Flood to give England the lead for the first time with two well-taken penalties, however a drop goal from Ruaridh Jackson level things up on the stroke of half time.

The England v Scotland hospitality guests were encouraged by what they had seen from England at half time in the England v Scotland match. Martin Johnson’s Grand Slam hopefuls looked lacking in spark, but seemed more than capable of punishing their Scottish counterparts.

The introduction of Matt Banahan in place of England skipper Tindall almost yielded immediate success for the home side after Banahan made space for Easter to set up Chris Ashton on one of his trademark bursts through the midfield, but the move was stopped just short of the line as Tom Wood was hauled down by the resolute Scottish defence.

Scotland were a man down shortly after as indiscipline at the ruck saw Barclay sin-binned and the Twickenham hospitality guests favourite Flood notch up another three points for the home side.

With Scotland a man light, England finally began to show the kind of play that has seen them light up these championships, man-of-the-match and Hospitalityfinder’s England v South Africa guest speaker James Haskell set Ben Foden free down the right, only for Paterson to force him into touch with a crucial last-ditch tackle.

England were back in full control against France once more, dictating the play and committing good numbers at the breakdown.

Toby Flood was replaced by Jonny Wilkinson, with both players receiving rapturous applause from the Twickenham hospitality guests in the West Stand.

Wilkinson was instantly involved, spraying a fine long pass out to Mark Cueto, who in turn fed substitute Tom Croft who powered his way through a tackle and over the line in the corner. The 6ft 6in flanker, who had been a guest of Hospitalityfinder for the England v France match, was delighted with the score, along with his overjoyed team-mates.

After consolation try for Scotland at the death, the full time whistle blew at Twickenham, leaving England needing only one more victory to complete a famous 6 Nations Grand Slam in 2011.

After a pulsating game, captain Mike Tindall lifted the Calcutta Cup in front of the Twickenham faithful before theEngland v Scotland hospitality guests returned back into the Twickenham hospitality restaurant, where guests celebrated another fine match between these two great sides. With Anglo-Scottish relations still good despite the good humoured banter, a post match buffet was served as the England v Scotland hospitality guests enjoyed the complimentary bar well into the evening.

Our England v Scotland hospitality packages at Twickenham remain a firm favourite, with corporate guests complimenting the high standard of rugby hospitality on offer in our luxurious Official Twickenham hospitality facility.
