Finn Russell left fans in stitches with his witty social media update following Scotland’s fourth consecutive victory over their arch-rivals at Murrayfield.

Not only did Russell showcase flawless kicking skills, maintaining a 100 percent accuracy throughout the game and the championship, but he also played a pivotal role in Duhan van der Merwe’s tries, orchestrating the Scottish attack with precision.

His latest move? A cheeky post that has ruffled a few feathers among England supporters.

Reacting to the post, one fan wrote: “0 six nations titles. 🤣 sorry I couldn’t help myself!”

A second said: “Congratulations Scotland but more wooden spoons than triple crowns….”

Another commented: “This chap couldn’t win a raffle if he tried,”

A fourth wrote: “RWC’s that Scotland have failed in? Oh yeah that’s 9,”

The England team Steve Borthwick should play against Scotland

England made 24 handling errors and conceded 22 turnovers in a ragged display.

#1. Ollie Lawrence

Telegraph 4/10: “Perhaps unsurprisingly was not on the same page as Ford and Slade in both attack and defence in their first game together. Badly fell off a tackle on Redpath that led to Scotland’s third try.”

Planet Rugby 4/10: “Barely saw him in an attacking sense. A few carries, one bad pass, one dropped ball – although that was George Ford’s fault – but not the form we’ve seen in the Premiership.”

RUCK 5/10: “Not what the Bath centre would have wanted upon his return from injury. The powerhouse came alive with some clattering hits, yet threw a wayward pass into touch at 76 minutes that summed up his afternoon. So much more was wanted from England fans, who were excited to see him comeback.”

Replacement: Manu Tuilagi
