Townsend talks up Scotland belief

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend says he does not care what the doubters think as he feels his side can get a win at Twickenham on Saturday.

The Scots head down to London looking for their first win over England since they triumphed at HQ all the way back in 1983.

Scotland secured a memorable 25-13 win over the Red Rose in their last meeting at Murrayfield and Townsend, despite the injuries in his squad, feels his team are capable of going down to Twickenham and getting a result.

"If no-one thinks we're going to win then that's fine," he said.

"We believe we can win and that's what we're working to do. Scotland teams tend to be underdogs on a number of occasions and it usually brings the best out in them.

"We're very motivated and full of energy. There were a lot of positive aspects against Wales, a quality team. We know we have to improve again to win at Twickenham."

England still have a chance of winning the Six Nations, if Ireland can do them a favour by beating Wales in Cardiff in Saturday's earlier game.

Scotland are 2.00 to win the game against England at Twickenham on Saturday, with the Red Rose 2.00 to secure victory and 2.00 to do so by a margin of 11-15 points.
