Scotland's famous win puts ball in Ireland's court

Scotland's famous win puts ball in Ireland's court

Scotland registered their first victory over England in a decade to reignite their NatWest 6 Nations title aspirations and leave the champions nursing a conclusive 25-13 defeat.

Gregor Townsend's men made England pay for countless errors and held on for a famous Calcutta Cup win.

Nonetheless, both sides went in at the same time, and a flashpoint erupted, with Owen Farrell and John Barclay reportedly involved.

Scotland have not beaten the auld enemy for a decade and suffered a 61-21 drubbing at Twickenham past year.

But England replied in kind through Farrell's 14th-minute penalty - a kick greeted with boos by the home crowd, who by that stage would have been aware of the tunnel fracas.

"Whenever England play anyone they want to beat them, the opposition want to beat them, Scotland, Wales, France, Ireland, they all want to beat England so every game's big, every game's fought and won".

A 22-6 lead had been compiled by half-time, leaving Jones' pre-tournament questioning of Scotland's lateral offence and ability to deal with expectation looking ill-judged.

Huw Jones left his calling card on England with two of the touch downs and his power at outside centre repeatedly rattled a defence that has rarely been in such disarray.

And Hartley, whose 92nd Test saw him become England men's second most capped player of all-time, blamed a lack of intensity at the breakdown as the catalyst behind defeat, as well as close calls as the cause of huge momentum shifts.

Jones, the son of English parents, could have had three had he not been stopped by Jonny May. Scotland, however, were magnificent: they stood up to the challenge, and perhaps laid the gauntlet to England before kick-off.

Farrell cut the deficit to nine points early in the second half with a try off a pass from Care that the inside centre duly converted.

England had another "try" disallowed when Farrell was denied after replays showed flanker Courtney Lawes had knocked on in the build-up when tackling Russell.
