Six Nations: Eddie Jones seeking answers to England's rare failings

Owen Farrell was at the centre of a pre-match scuffle prior to Scotland defeat

The Glasgow forward, who is also embroiled in the rumbling furore over an alleged pre-match bust-up in the tunnel, has been reported over an incident in the 37th minute of the match involving his opposite number Nathan Hughes.

He could be ruled of the tussle with Ireland in Dublin a week on Saturday and the trip to take on Italy in Rome seven days later. "As always Ronnie was the most popular pick with punters so we took quite a hammering from him beating Ding in the final", said Apati.

"It is very tough to win away from home and we're certainly no different from that".

"I thought we were ready to play but we weren't".

"When we beat Australia in Sydney, that was a remarkable performance in itself and that should give us some optimism for what's going to be an incredibly hard challenge in Dublin".

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.

Six Nations Rugby is writing to the Scottish and English unions to request clarification on what happened in the tunnel ahead of Saturday's Murrayfield clash.

Horgan said his government will continue moving ahead with public consultation on four of its proposed measures. "I think it is fair to say that in a small way today B.C. blinked", Notley said .

"The game has moved on so much that it's hard to compare the other eras", Hadden insisted. Scotland were too good for us.

"The skills of the professional players now are so much greater than they were in the past".

And just before half-time the Scots brought a capacity crowd at Murrayfield to its feet with their third try when Jones burst through England's midfield and held off the despairing tackles of fullback Mike Brown and wing Anthony Watson before going under the posts, with Laidlaw adding the simple conversion.

"We didn't do that two or three weeks ago in Cardiff".

"Unfortunately we just weren't in the game for the first 40 minutes".

Captain Rory Best said having young blood in the side was key with the Irish on a 10-Test winning streak.
