Motion text

That this House congratulates the Scottish national men's rugby union team on their 11-6 victory over England in the opening game of the Six Nations Championship, winning the Calcutta Cup; notes that this is the first victory by a Scotland team at Twickenham since 1983; appreciates the work and dedication shown by coach Gregor Townsend, captain Stuart Hogg and the rest of the squad; congratulates Duhan van der Merwe on his try and Finn Russell on his two successful penalty kicks; applauds the extremely assured debut performances by Cameron Redpath and David Cherry; further notes that a Scottish victory was very apt as this year marks the 150th anniversary of the first rugby international between Scotland and England which took place on 27 March 1871 at Raeburn Place, Edinburgh which Scotland also won; and wishes Scotland the very best of luck in their remaining Six Nations fixtures.
