Tries by lock George Kruis and wing Jack Nowell gave England a hard-earned 15-9 Six Nations victory over Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday in coach Eddie Jones's first match in charge. It was not exactly a flying start to a new era for Jones and his team but, after the ignominy of England becoming the first host nation to exit a World Cup before the knock-out stages, a sixth successive Calcutta Cup victory against Scotland qualified as a solid first step. Equally depressingly, the Scots drew a sixth successive Murrayfield blank on the try scoring front against England.
A march by Germany's anti-Islamic organisation Pegida drew thousands to the eastern city of Dresden on Saturday with rallies in support of the movement also held in a string of other European cities. In Prague, around 5,000 people turned out for a Pegida-inspired march organised by two far-right groups, while in Amsterdam mounted police charged pro- and anti-Pegida groups and arrested at least a dozen people. Another rally in the northern French port of Calais, home to the infamous "Jungle" refugee camp for migrants seeking passage across the Channel to Britain, brought about 20 arrests, local authorities said.
