Wins for England and France

12:19 pm on 5 February 2012

England has beaten Scotland 13-6 in their opening Six Nations rugby clash at Murrayfield in Edinburgh.

A chargedown try early in the second half to English first five Charlie Hodgson was enough for the visitors, despite Scotland leading 6-3 at half-time and dominating the second spell.

Rugby World Cup runners-up France kicked off their Six Nations campaign with a 30-12 win against Italy in Paris.

France will take on Ireland at the Stade de France next Saturday, while Italy entertain England at the Stadio Olimpico.
