England and Scotland investigated over Farrell tunnel clash

England and Scotland investigated over Farrell tunnel clash

"It's human nature, unfortunately we just weren't in the game for the first 40 minutes". We invited them to the game and they took full advantage.

"I couldn't have played like I did today without the boys round me giving me the support and knowing their game plan as well as I did. You can show it to me after the press conference, then we can have a chat about it", Jones said.

Ireland's bonus-point victory mirrored overwhelming domination of possession and territory, while Wales' nine penalties conceded equaled the total in their previous two games - against Scotland and England - combined.

"It was important for us to win against France just to get some points on the board and we did that. And I take full responsibility, so I've got to work out what I did wrong and how to fix it".

The worry for Scotland, who came from behind to beat France, is that recovering from a sluggish start against England last year, is something else entirely particularly if Jones's men can, as they did in a dominating 61-21 Calcutta Cup win at Twickenham last year, cut through an often fragile midfield defence.

"Have you got an Iphone 10?"

Wales head coach Warren Gatland looks set to make changes for the Azzurri's visit on March 11 - wing George North moving to centre could be one of them - and Owens says there must be no let-up. I apologise for our performance.

Russell's resulting penalty gave Scotland a 12-point lead which they defended superbly to thwart England's attacking raids and seal a stunning victory that keeps alive their hopes of winning their first Six Nations title since the tournament expanded.

When the fracas was picked up by broadcasters during the interval, Martin Johnson quipped in his role as pundit that it was "England's highlight so far I think", summarising a dismal first half in Edinburgh. "The vision is better on an Iphone 10".

"For me personally, it's really exciting; you want to test yourself against these guys and see where we are at".

"Owen Farrell is one of the best players in the world", said Horne. We will learn a lot from this. "I didn't prepare the team as well as I should have and that's my fault". The England side that won the 2003 Grand Slam before clinching World Cup glory went through the agony of losing the 1999 and 2002 titles and 2000 and 2001 Grand Slams; the great All Blacks suffered 24 years of World Cup hurt before finally securing their first step towards World Cup greatness in 2011.

While the win went some way to proving Scotland's mettle on the highest stage under intense pressure, there remain questions over their away record in the Six Nations.
