Watch: England And Scotland Play Out The Craziest Game Of All Time

The biggest comeback in Championship history! Scotland have come back from a seemingly insurmountable lead to grab the most unlikely of draws against England, clawing back a 31-point deficit.

It could have been even better, with England needing a last minute try from George Ford to snatch a draw for his side.

The Scots got off to a horrific start in this one, finding themselves trailing their hosts on a scoreline of 31-0 inside the opening half. It looked like the game could finish with an absolute cricket score, and it very much seemed like a case of damage limitation.

When they grabbed a try just before halftime, it seemed like it would have very little impact on the game. But Scotland came out flying in the second half. This try from Darcy Graham got them going, launching a comeback for the ages.


This beauty then got them back into contention.

This intercept try got them back on level terms, with Owen Farrell's pass picked off by Finn Russell who streaked home.


Farrell should have been sent to the bin a few minutes later, with yet another trademark poor tackle from the Englishman.


How many times does Owen Farrell get away with incidents such as this? It seems that in every game he plays for England he commits some sort of late hit or other sort of dangerous tackle, but in the majority of cases he gets away with it. That's what happened here.

Despite England getting away with one, Scotland would take the lead, and it looked like they were about to grab one of the most unlikely victories we have ever seen.

Unfortunately it was not to be, as England somehow managed to find the time to grab an equalising try, with George Ford touching down underneath the posts.

It was a fitting end to the most bonkers game in Six Nations history. Scotland will no doubt be thrilled to come up with such a showing in the second half, but will be disappointed they couldn't hang on at the end.

Eddie Jones meanwhile will have a lot of questions to answer, after one of the biggest cock ups we have ever seen.
