England coach Stuart Lancaster has admitted that he is pleased with England's opening win over Scotland in the Six Nations on Saturday.

Despite the visitors taking an early lead at Twickenham, England came back to see off their old rivals 38-18 and retain the Calcutta Cup.

"I'm pleased with the scoreline. I definitely would have taken that at the start of the day," Lancaster told BBC Sport.

"Our intent to play was excellent. We were a little bit loose on occasions but overall, I'm pleased with that start."

England continue their campaign next Sunday when they travel to Ireland, who beat Wales 30-22 in Cardiff earlier in the day.
