The Calcutta Cup is always a volatile affair, however the atmosphere this year was stepped up a notch as nobody quite new which way it would go this year.
Unfortunately, this led to a number of audible periods of booing during the game when Owen Farrell stepped up to take kicks, and so some fans took to Twitter to vent their frustrations…
Ok, I know it's a tense game but there really isn't any need for boo's, guyyyssssss….. #ENGvSCO

Lovely bit of booing, Scottish crowd. To quote Nigel Owens, this isn't soccer. #ENGvSCO

It wasn’t all one way however as England fans also resorted to booing during some of Greig Laidlaw’s kicks.
