ScotRail has appealed to fans to plan ahead as services to and from Edinburgh will be extremely busy.

They are also advised to allow additional time for travel.

Phil Campbell, ScotRail head of customer operations, said: “Scotland v England in the Six Nations is one of the biggest games in the rugby calendar, and we will be doing all we can to make things run smoothly.

“Although we can’t make every train longer, we will be using every train we have on the day.

“If you’re going to Murrayfield, please allow extra time for travel, and buy your ticket in advance, not on the day.

“The last trains of the day will be very busy, so please aim for an earlier service to avoid disappointment.”
