Robinson out to spoil grand slam

FORMER England boss Andy Robinson is convinced he can lead Scotland to their first win of this year’s RBS 6 Nations against his old team this weekend.

Robinson has rung the changes for Sunday’s clash at Twickenham, recalling backs Simon Danielli, Joe Ansbro and Rory Lawson and flanker Nathan Hines.

And the Englishman insists the Scots can spring a huge surprise by ending the home side’s hopes of a grand slam in the penultimate round of fixtures, despite historically having won just four times in 44 trips to London.

“The record books show what a special achievement it would be for the Scotland team to win on Sunday,” said Robinson.

“That is our intention and we firmly believe that if we can deliver a sustained, intelligent and ruthless performance then we can achieve our first win of this season’s championship.

“England have played some good rugby in this championship but Sunday is about our performance.”

England manager Martin Johnson is set to name his team tomorrow.
