Eddie Jones fronts up after Scotland smash England in Six Nations

She added: "We were at full capacity during the first game, so we had a queue stretching up the road, lots of people were trying to get in and have drinks before the Scotland match". If there was, we shouldn't let that detract from a great Scotland victory.

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. You can show it to me after the press conference, then we can have a chat about it.

"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".

England had the Calcutta Cup wrenched off them on the same week that centre Ben Te'o boldly proclaimed that his side's storied history against Scotland was "irrelevant" to him.

When the clash was highlighted 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.

Buoyed by a vociferous crowd the hosts consistently stretched the visitors' defence and Jones collected a deft Russell grubber kick to dive over next to the posts to score Scotland's first home try against England since 2004. "I take full responsibility and I have to work out what I did wrong and work out how to fix it". You have got to be good enough to handle it and we weren't today. I apologise for our performance.

England are now five points behind Ireland on the Six Nations log, with matches against France in Paris and Ireland at Twickenham to come. After half-time they were better, and it was Scotland making the mistakes that looked potentially costly, but as long as the gap was over 10 points it never actually looked like a momentum shift had been completed.

"It is frustrating that we put ourselves under pressure at times". "It's a quiet changing room, it's disappointing and some players are down, but we have to learn from it".

"These lessons you don't want to have but they are the best lessons in the world. I didn't prepare the team as well as I should have and that's my fault". However, Ireland are closer to England than they have been in nearly two years.

With France, Ireland and a three-Test tour of South Africa coming up - plus New Zealand in the autumn - we're going to find out if they are capable of doing just that.

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.
