England and Scotland asked for clarification on Murrayfield tunnel scuffle

"If you look at the way Scotland contest the breakdown, it's not just their back row", he said. "It is one of those things that gets built up into something more than it was".

After years upon years of agony against their greatest enemy, Scotland handed Eddie Jones only his second loss as England coach and pitched themselves right into the championship picture.

England thought they were about to score their second try when Care intercepted a loose pass from opposing scrum-half Laidlaw but referee Nigel Owens penalised England lock Joe Launchbury for slowing the ball at the preceding ruck.

Scotland were excellent and fully deserved their win over England at Murrayfield on the weekend.

"We knew what we would get thrown at us at Murrayfield - 65,000 people all passionate about Scotland".

Scotland started the Six Nations with a dismal loss in Wales but rebounded by beating France in round two.

Next up for Scotland is a match away to Ireland, the only team left in this season's Six Nations who can complete a Grand Slam. Calls were growing for the introduction of promotion and relegation in the championship, giving the likes of Georgia and Romania hope of a spot in the Northern Hemisphere jamboree.

An in-form side suffered a 61-21 thrashing last March and there were emotional celebrations on the pitch as the Scots gained revenge with their first win over England since 2008.

"It's definitely going to be tough for the last couple of games but if we keep performances up like that we've got a chance". "We said after that we didn't become a bad team overnight".

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.

His other try might end up being the best of the competition, breaking through a tackle just inside England's half and running 50m before bursting through two defenders to score.

This was arguably Scotland's best performance since coach Gregor Townsend took charge a year ago.

Led by the brilliance of Huw Jones, who scored a brace of tries, and Finn Russell - criticised before the game but at the heart of Scotland's best play - the hosts opened up a 16-point halftime lead, with Sean Maitland also touching down. "We knew how important this week was going to be, what it meant to our supporters and the players played with some real pride". It didn't spark a comeback, though.

England then found themselves a man down with 14 minutes left when Sam Underhill was sin-binned for a risky challenge on opposing replacement Jamie Bhatti.

"They were too good for us".
