England too strong for Scots in Six Nations opener

- +

England coach Stuart Lancaster said he faced a selection debate after Billy Twelvetrees marked his Test debut with one of the team's four tries in their 38-18 Calcutta Cup win over Scotland at Twickenham. 

England's centre Brad Barritt (L) is tackled by Scotland's players during their Six Nations rugby union match at Twickenham Stadium in south-west London, on February 2, 2013. England started their Six Nations campaign with a 38-18 win as Scotland's 30-year wait for a Twickenham triumph was extended yet again.

Saturday's success saw England launch their Six Nations campaign in convincing fashion with Twelvetrees, in for the injured Manu Tuilagi, delivering an accomplished all-round performance that saw him run a good line for a try on the crash ball early in the second half.
