England set-up a three way fight for the Six Nations title with Wales and Ireland after overcoming Scotland in an unconvincing performance at Twickenham.

It had been more than three decades since Scotland's last win at Twickenham, but that streak looked like it could have come to and end when Scotland entered half-time with a shock three point lead.

But tries from Jonathan Joseph, George Ford and Jack Nowell secured the win for Stuart Lancaster's men.

England launched themselves out of the blocks, with Luther Burrell racing away only to be denied a very early try by Scotland full-back Stuart Hogg. Minutes later, however, Jonathan Joseph cut through a weak defence and side-stepped Hogg for the opening try of the match.

An error-strewn England side spurned several good chances to extend their lead in a difficult opening quarter for the visitors.

But with their first venture into English territory, Mark Bennett stunned Twickenham with a well-worked try from the quick line-out.

Ford and Greid Laidlaw exchanged kicks to make it 10-10 and England thought they'd scored again through Anthony Watson but it was ruled out for a forward pass.

Scotland themselves came close to a second try before half-time, but were prevented by an excellent tap tackle from Mike Brown on Tommy Seymour. England were offside at the breakdown and Laidlaw converted the penalty to give Scotland a three point lead at half-time.

But that was as good as it got for the Scots, who are without a win in this Six Nations. They could only look on without a second-half point as two more tries and a few more points from the boot of Ford secured the win for England.

The win sets up a tantilizing final weekend of the Six Nations in a week's time. England, Ireland and Wales all have hopes of winning the championship on points difference, having won three of their four games each.

England are in pole position with a point difference of +37, but face a tricky tie at home against an always unpredictable France side.

Ireland, who did have hopes of the Grand Slam before defeat to Wales on the weekend, are not far behind on +33 and travel to Scotland on the final day.

Wales, boosted by their defiant defensive performance against Ireland, face Italy in Rome knowing their +12 points difference means that only a big win will do.
