While the players from both England and Scotland watched on as Duhan van der Merwe scored one of the great Six Nations tries, Finn Russell used the moment to rub it into his opposite number Owen Farrell, after the England captain failed to lay a finger on on the big Scottish winger.

The maverick ten was seen rushing up to Farrell and pushing him, before clearly shouting something in his direction.

It also came soon after Farrell had smashed Russell, causing a turnover, while he was in a dangerous position in England's 22.

As you can see in the clip below, there is no love lost between the former Lions teammates.

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend spoke after the game of his pride, after his side secured the Calcutta Cup for a third year in a row.

"Hugely proud. I don't know if it's this fixture, but it got me emotional at the end.


"To see the way the players came back, in a venue we struggled for a lot of occasions, shows what a team we have. We weren't at our best today.

"The game needed to break out, and it wasn't until the last 20 minutes where we started to force the issue in a positive way and move the ball to edges - that was great to see.

"To win from behind, when you've only got five minutes, to score such a good try makes it all the more special.


"England are a top, top side. Coming to Twickenham for any team is really difficult. You get belief from how you've gone against a team in the past. 2018 unlocked opportunities here."
