  1. Bye!

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    That's all from snowy Murrayfield. Hopefully the players have all got the feeling back in their fingers by now.

    Have a read of the report from England's win here.

    The Six Nations takes a rest now, but we will be back to cover England v Ireland on Sunday 23 February and in the meantime make sure you listen to this Wednesday's edition of Rugby Union Weekly for all the latest Women's Six Nations chat.

  2. 'We strive for perfection'

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    England captain Sarah Hunter said on Sky Sports:

    "Ironically we were more accurate when the snow came down.

    "Both the coaches and players strive for perfection and to constantly keep pushing the standards.

    "Ireland [England's next opponents] have had two good wins so far and look a really strong outfit.

    "They have a powerful pack, their interlinking play will pose a challenge for us.

    "We've had two tough away trips in very different conditions. It's definitely tested us and we're looking forward to getting to Doncaster and getting home support there."

  3. 'Playing England is an amazing opportunity'

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    Scotland captain Rachel Malcolm said on Sky Sports:

    "From where we were at last year, we've had a lot more time together now.

    "Though the scoreline doesn't show it, we've taken a step forward compared to Twickenham last year.

    "Playing against England is an amazing opportunity. Playing one of the best teams in the world, they're going to expose your weaknesses and it was great to learn as a team.

    "Italy is a really big game for us in terms of pushing on and improving performances."

  4. 'There's a great buzz in the changing rooms'

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    England coach Simon Middleton said on Sky Sports:

    "It's a seven out of 10. It was a pretty good performance bearing in mind the conditions.

    "We had a good second half and played a bit smarter.

    "You could see they were really struggling [in the conditions]. They stayed in there and we just about got away with it.

    "We're pleased with the score and particularly with keeping Scotland to nil because they've got dangerous players.

    "Sarah Bern was absolutely amazing. There was some great finishing from Abby Dow.

    "We've played two games away against two very good sides in totally contrasting conditions. I'm thrilled and we've got plenty to build on.

    "The most important thing is we can see progression in the side.

    "There's a great buzz in the changing room. We've got a great group."

  5. 'A gulf in class'

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    Scotland coach Philip Doyle said on Sky Sports:

    "It was a very hard day at the office. In the first half our scrum was excellent.

    "Unfortunately our line-outs let us down and we paid the price.

    "You are looking at a professional side and we're not but we've at least closed the gap on them. That's all I asked today.

    "It's a gulf in class. It's hard to take but we'll look forward to Italy now. That is a side we can definitely challenge a lot closer.

    "This is the one we've been targeting and looking forward to. We've got a few points to prove to ourselves.

    "It was a credit to both sides the way they tried to play good rugby when it was incredibly hard out there."

  6. 'We kept our heads switched on'

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    Player of the match Emily Scott said on Sky Sports:

    "It was really difficult. It's not often you play in the snow like this and it got icy towards the end as well.

    "We handled the postponement well. Adverse conditions is what we have to deal with.

    "We kept our heads switched on and knew we had to perform today. We had hot water in drinks bottles to keep our hands warm which was a dream.

    "I was pleased to start at full-back and to get 80 minutes under my belt. We still have a way to go but we've done a job so far."

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    But the weather was the big story from that game.

    The conditions in the second half were absolutely brutal as snow swirled around Murrayfield. Let's hope the hot water's working

  8. Post update

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    There are a few telling stats from that match.

    England made almost double the metres Scotland did: 884 to the Scots' 404.

    Scotland lost eight line-outs in total and won just two. And both sides conceded a healthy number of penalties: seven for Scotland and six for England.

  9. Post update

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    So England's Grand Slam defence continues.

    They are now top of the table on points difference, with Ireland second after winning both their games too.

    That means the next round of games will be a tasty one as the two unbeaten teams face each other in Doncaster on 23 February.

  10. 'Threats throughout England's team'

    FT: Scotland 0-53 England

    Scotland will be happy with the scoreline in comparison with last year.

    England took time to get into the game but showed patience and when they got it right there were real threats throughout the team.

  11. Full-time

    Scotland 0-53 England

    The team doctors leave tracks in the snow as they leave the pitch.

    Scotland have a scrum inside their half and are pushed back again. England gain possession and Katy Daley-McLean decides they have had enough time out in the blizzard. The fly-half kicks the ball out to finish off England's dominant win.

  12. 'Players cold as penguins'

    Scotland 0-53 England

    Rocky Clark

    Former England World Cup winner on BBC Radio 5 Live Sports Extra

    The players are huddling around like penguins trying to keep warm. I shouldn't laugh but it's quite funny from here!

  13. Post update

    Scotland 0-53 England

    Yet another break in play as two more players appear to have come off badly from a collision.

    Scotland get into a huddle with a hot water bottle being embraced in the middle.

  14. Try - Scotland 0-53 England

    Claudia MacDonald (Con Scarratt)

    And another one!

    Great work from replacement scrum-half Claudia MacDonald as she reacts immediately to a mistake from Scotland, kicking the ball forward and diving down onto it for England's eighth try.

    Emily Scarratt overtakes Katy Daley-McLean as England Women's leading points-scorer with the conversion.

  15. Post update

    Scotland 0-46 England

    England full-back Emily Scott is given the player of the match award. She might not have been able to secure a hat-trick yet, but that'll do.

  16. Post update

    Scotland 0-46 England

    Scotland knock the ball on, which will be desperately frustrating for them. They have got five minutes left to try and get on the board at Murrayfield.

    We have another stoppage as Scotland number eight Jade Konkel receives treatment. Emily Scarratt, Jess Breach and Amber Reed huddle like penguins. Reed looks like she might cry.

  17. Post update

    Scotland 0-46 England

    Amelia Harper, who made her England debut last week, gets some strapping on her head, while Scotland forward Louise McMillan goes off for an HIA with a big bump over her right eye. McMillan had to have an ice pack on the bump, the last thing you would want in this weather.

  18. Post update

    Scotland 0-46 England

    Scotland were building some momentum, but there are a couple of players down injured so the referee stops play.

  19. Post update

    Scotland 0-46 England

    England concede another penalty on the floor and Scotland are inside their 22.

    It feels like they deserve at least one try in this game, but England are keeping them at bay for now.
