EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND, January 07, 2012 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Scotland will get their RBS 6 Nations campaign underway with a game against England at Murrayfield on Saturday February 4th.
The clash between two of rugby union's oldest rivals is always a passionate affair and this fixture will be no different, with both sides eager to bounce back from disappointment at the 2011 World Cup in New Zealand.
Fans heading to the famous Edinburgh stadium can expect a thrilling encounter that should set the tone for the remainder of the 6 Nations.
Scotland will be without influential former captain Chris Paterson, their most capped player, for the tournament after he recently announced his retirement from international rugby.
Meanwhile, England must adjust to life without Martin Johnson, who quit as manager following a widely criticised World Cup campaign.
Caretaker head coach Stuart Lancaster has been charged with revitalising the squad and overseeing success in the 6 Nations.
The game is due to kick off at 17:00 GMT. Tickets are priced between GBP35 and GBP75 for adults, while under-18s will pay between GBP17.50 and GBP37.50.
