Six Nations - England v Scotland

Twickenham, 21st March 2009

England 26-12 Scotland

The last match of the 2009 RBS 6 Nations saw an on-form England play host to a determined Scotland side at Twickenham, in a contest to decide the winner of the historic Calcutta Cup.

Inside our official England v Scotland Hospitality facility, excited guests enjoyed a champagne reception upon their arrival at the restaurant. Having taken their seats in the hospitality suite, guests were served a gourmet four course luncheon by the experienced hostesses on hand, while the guest celebrity speaker gave his fascinating insight into the events about to unfold on the hallowed Twickenham pitch ahead of the England v Scotland kick off.

Shortly after leaving the complimentary bar, guests sideline seats which were grouped together in the west stand. The combination of sideline viewing and optimum elevation gave clients an unbeatable panoramic view of the thrilling action out on the pitch, the ideal location from which to enjoy this epic Six Nations match from. A fiery atmosphere inside Twickenham Stadium greeted the two teams as they marched out to get England v Scotland underway.

Coming off the back of a fantastic performance against the much favoured French, England were keen to continue in the same vein of form against their old Celtic rivals. With Scotland having not won at Twickenham since 1983 and having suffered 40-point defeats in their previous four visits, England fancied their chances of another big win this time around at the Home of Rugby.

Scotland drew first blood with a penalty which was converted by the metronomic Chris Paterson. After losing Phil Vickery and Harry Ellis to injury shortly after, England regrouped and from the resultant ruck hoisted a kick deep into Scottish territory which allowed Ugo Monye to thunder over in the corner to cap a superb try.

England spent the rest of the half crashing waves of attack against the resolute Scottish defence and finally managed to breach it just after the 30-minute mark.

After bundling Joe Worsley into touch the Scottish defence failed to deal with the resulting line-out, which Worsley himself pounced upon just a yard out and managed to offload an uncharacteristically nimble pass. Riki Flutey took the hold of the ball and burrowed his way over the line despite desperate Scottish defence, handing England their second try of the match and taking him top of the Six Nations scoring charts in the process.

England grasped the initiative in the match and set up kept the Scots camped in their own half until the break, with Flood converting a penalty to give the Twickenham fans a 15-3 lead to enjoy during the interval’s traditional banter.

From their first half performance it looked as though the hosts were set for a comprehensive England v Scotland victory, but as ever the never-say-die attitude of the Scots came into play and they began to edge back into the contest. Firstly, Phil Godman blasted a long range penalty over the posts before Paterson managed to further reduce the gap with a penalty after Nick Easter was penalised for holding on at a ruck. With the pressure on Martin Johnson’s shoulders mounting and the Twickenham crowd growing restless, he changed things around and was relieved to see Danny Care slip a drop goal between the posts.

With time almost up, substitute Matthew Tait had the final word as he broke down the left flank unchallenged and sealed what appeared to be another comfortable victory for England at Twickenham. After the England v Scotland final whistle a thoroughly satisfied crowd celebrated another solid home performance against their fierce rivals, with the England team collecting the Calcutta Cup on the pitch.

Celebrations went on well into the evening back at the official England v Scotland Hospitality facility after the match. Guests were served a gourmet buffet and enjoyed the complimentary bar whilst fans from both sides of the border debated the qualities of both sides following another feisty England v Scotland encounter.

As the final pints of Guinness were drained, the entertainment at the England v Scotland Hospitality drew to a close, bringing an end to a fantastic day for England on the pitch, as well as a memorable corporate event for Hospitality Finder at Twickenham.
