England won back the Calcutta Cup and kept their Six Nations title hopes alive with a turgid victory over Scotland in awful weather conditions.

Ellis Genge scored the only try with 10 minutes remaining as driving rain and strong gusts made for a disrupted, error-ridden contest at Murrayfield.

This result meant Scotland fell short of a third-straight Calcutta Cup, but England climb level on points with second-placed Wales, four adrift of unbeaten leaders Ireland (with France v Italy still to play).

Owen Farrell scores a penalty in either half which completed the scoring, but England could have scored more with Owen missing three more attempts from the tee as the weather contributed to a low-scoring affair.

Adam Hastings replied twice for Scotland with two penalties, with his 78th-minute kick ensuring Gregor Townsend’s men picked up a second losing bonus point in as many weekends.
