Al Kellock is dreaming of sealing his place among the legends of Scottish rugby by helping Scotland end three decades of misery in London in their opening Six Nations clash at Twickenham on 2 February.

The Glasgow forward is one of 35 players hoping to be named in interim Scotland head coach Scott Johnson's first line-up, which will bid to become the first side from north of the border to win at Twickenham since 1983.

England are heavy favourites for the match following their victory over New Zealand last month, which followed Scotland's 21-15 defeat to Tonga in November.

But Kellock said: "The last game we had for Scotland was a huge disappointment, for everyone concerned. But this is now an opportunity for us to put it to bed.

"If we win, it gets us off to a fantastic start in the competition. It's key to get a bit of momentum at the beginning.

"It would be unbelievable if we did it. I'd love it. I've been lucky enough to play England a few times - beaten them up here, drawn with them up here and pushed them close down there when Max Evans scored that great try when he kicked it over the top in 2011.

"We had a disappointing result in Auckland in the World Cup when we were fantastic for 70 minutes but they scored a breakaway at the end.

"They are all special games but to win one down there would put you in among the legends of Scottish rugby."
