Brown: ‘Don’t write us off’

Brown: ‘Don’t write us off’

SCOTLAND N0 8 Kelly Brown has a message for England ahead of the teams’ showdown at Twickenham on Sunday – don’t underestimate us.

England is trucking along nicely and is on course to complete  its first Six Nations Grand Slam since 2003.

While Brown has been impressed with how the Martin Johnson-coached side has gone about its business so far, he reckons Scotland can claim its first win in London since 1983.

“We know how they play and we've got a couple of plans up our sleeves to attack them," Brown told the Press Association.

Scotland has lost to France, Wales and Ireland so far in the competition and appears destined to finish near the bottom of the competition. Next week it faces a potential wooden spoon clash with Italy.

“We've shown in patches just exactly what we can do,” said Brown.

“For us it's about starting well, putting the pressure on them in the first 20 minutes and really getting stuck into them and trying to upset their rhythm. From then anything can happen.”
