The end of the 2019 Six Nations is in sight and England are still vying for glory. Depending on how the Wales vs Ireland game goes down, England may still have the chance at the trophy and, of course, the cross-border bragging rights of beating Scotland in today’s Calcutta Cup game.
The great news is you can watch every Six Nations game from practically anywhere and getting an England vs Scotland live stream is no exception.
England v Scotland – where and when
England and Scotland will meet on the field at Twickenham Stadium, West London.
The game itself – the last of this year’s Six Nations – starts today, Saturday March 16, at 5pm GMT.
Scotland hasn’t performed as well as the side may have liked this tournament with plenty of losses (except to Italy, of course). England started off strong beating the favourites Ireland and smashed France by a huge measure but a clash with Wales saw them defeated.
While this game should be England’s for the taking, Scotland humbled England by beating them convincingly at Murrayfield last year 25–13. For this game England has dropped Joe Cokanasiga – despite his man of the match performance against Italy – and stepping in to replace him in the number 14 jersey is Exeter’s Jack Nowell. In the midfield is Manu Tuilagi and Henry Slade outside Owen Farrell. Ben Moon is back as loosehead prop with Mark Wilson in as blindside flanker to replace Brad Shields.
The Scottish side sees injured players dropping out with Tommy Seymour, Blair Kinghorn and Jamie Ritchie plus Peter Horne on the list. Recalls have therefore been handed to Sean Maitland, Hamish Watson and Sam Skinner.
Even if the game itself ends up having no bearing on the final 2019 Six Nations standings table, watching these two teams go head-to-head is always a must watch. The great news is that it’s free-to-air in the UK, so you can tune in to an England vs Scotland live stream for free if you’re there. For all your other viewing options, keep on reading.

Live stream the Six Nations when you’re not in your country
If you’re outside your home country – whether that be the UK or anywhere else – and try to start streaming the rugby via your native broadcaster, you’ll realise that you can’t as it’s location restricted. Fear not, the action is still within your reach. All you need to do is download and install a VPN to effectively trick your computer into thinking that it’s back home. That way you can enjoy your home coverage (assuming you comply with the broadcaster’s TS&Cs), minus the risk of using a naughty stream from an illegal source.
It’s really easy to get started with a VPN – simply download, install, open the app and select the appropriate location.
We’ve tested all of the major VPN services and we rate ExpressVPN as the absolute best thanks to its speed, security and simplicity to use. We also like that it’s compatible with so many devices and streaming services (e.g. Amazon Fire TV Stick, Apple TV, Xbox, PS4, etc). Express is excellent, but there are other fantastic VPN options out there as well – here are our current top three entrants on our best VPN countdown:
1. ExpressVPN: the best all-round VPN for streaming, comes with 30-day trial and/or 3 months FREE with an annual plan
2. IPVanish supports up to 10 devices, so great on the go
