Duhan van der Merwe’s late try gave Scotland back-to-back wins at Twickenham for the first time, with a stunning 29-23 Six Nations victory against England.

After Huw Jones and Max Malins traded scores, Duhan van der Merwe scored an individual try that will go down in Six Nations history to take Scotland ahead again.

England stayed patient and were rewarded as Malins finished off a well-worked team try before Owen Farrell’s penalty put them one point up at half-time.
