The Irish Rugby Supporters Club is delighted to announce that tickets for the GUINNESS Series 2013 will go on sale on ticketmaster.ie at 10am on Thursday, May 30.
England go into Saturday's Calcutta Cup clash at Murrayfield as extremely short odds favourites to complete the second leg of what is widely expected to be a Six Nations Grand Slam triumph to follow up their victory in the World Cup in Australia at the end of last year.
But despite the vast gulf that separates England from a Scotland side in the first stages of rebuilding, Woodward insists there can be no room for complacency in what may be difficult conditions given the steady rain in Edinburgh on Friday.
"I don't care how we win the game, it's just about winning," Woodward said. "We are used to the favourites' tag, but this is another good match-up. If we are allowed to play the way we want to play, then we can win the game, but it will be a tough old game - it always is up here.
"We've been up here and won, and we've been up here and lost. On both occasions, we were red-hot favourites, and you draw on all your experience as a player and as a coach.
"I just know it is very easy coaching a team who are the underdogs playing against arguably the best team in the world. You know what's going on in their changing room - Scotland have got absolutely everything to gain, and nothing to lose."
Although England opened their campaign with a seven-try hammering of Italy in Rome, Woodward was not totally satisfied with what he termed a "little bit rusty" performance.
"We've sat down and watched the video, and we are looking for a big performance tomorrow."
Woodward also underlined that a greasy pitch would be no excuse if England were to succumb to what would be a major upset.
"People talk about the weather up here in 2000, but it did rain before 2000. We just had a bad day, and lost to a better team."
Scotland go into the match looking to restore some morale after last week's heavy defeat by Wales in Cardiff. Coach Matt Williams has called up wing Simon Webster and flanker Jason White in a bit to give his side some added edge.
England will hand a first Test match start to Sale forward Chris Jones and will look to his 6ft 6in (1.95m) frame to give them an added edge in the lineouts.
