England And Scotland Could Be Under Investigation For Tunnel Scrap

"Unfortunately we just weren't in the game for the first 40 minutes". We had three opportunities to score, and we took three chances.

Jones was quick to brush off the notion that his side had been affected by the reported scuffle inside the tunnel ahead of kick-off, but he acknowledged that they had not been able to deal with the occasion.

He said: "I went back to Scarlets on our week off and just had a little chat with some of the Wales guys who faced them last week.

I think Wales have surprised a few people, played very well, it makes all the games exciting, I think you wouldn't be fully confident of predicting the results at the weekend".

"To see their faces after the game and how much it meant to them.it means the world to all of us, but those guys that have been around for a while and had some not so good times in a Scotland shirt, it's massive for them", he added. "We knew the significance of the game, we knew what we would get thrown at us at Murrayfield".

"We just weren't there in the first half and I take responsibility for it".

Jones crossed twice and Sean Maitland also went over as the Scots surged into a 22-6 lead at half-time and never looked back.

Woodward said he had "no real explanation at the moment" for England's poor display, citing Scotland's 34-7 loss to Wales in the first round as a reason to avoid rushing to judgement.

Something had gone wrong, and afterwards, Eddie Jones did what Eddie Jones does - he refused to blame the players and took responsibility himself. It's good that we don't do that. I apologise for our performance.

England and Scotland must explain the tunnel fracas involving Owen Farrell and Ryan Wilson at Murrayfield on Saturday following a request for clarification by Six Nations Rugby. "The vision is better on an Iphone 10".

There's more evidence on this showing that that's true, given how poorly England started the match.

Gregor Townsend's side won 10 turnovers to England's four, while Jones will be well aware that his team finished the match with another heavy penalty count against them. We will learn a lot from this.

"We conceded nine penalties, and it does frustrate your game".

"Ireland are a great side, and if you are indisciplined against them, they punish you, and that's what they did". "I didn't prepare the team as well as I should have and that's my fault".

"Wales go to Ireland with not a lot of pressure on them and that can make them unsafe".

"Maybe at the start people were saying Ireland, if they could win away in Paris, would probably get to Twickenham unbeaten but we'll see".
