Huw Jones says Scotland must improve further to beat Ireland


England still have a chance to win a historic third Six Nations title in a row, but now trail leaders Ireland by five points in the table.

Six Nations organisers are certain to investigate the incident and photographs confirm it took place, but Jones was unaware of what had happened.

"I can't get my head around this "finishing" business", said the former England and British and Irish Lions centre. Are you aware of it? It's never nice to get beat, We were not in the game for the first 40 minutes and full marks to Scotland they were the better side.

'In all seriousness, I don't know about it. If there was, we shouldn't let that detract from a great Scotland victory. "Don't get distracted by other things". You have got to be good enough to handle it and we weren't today. "The vision is better on an Iphone 10".

"I've heard about this but I was in the toilets".

"I heard about it but I am always the first off the pitch after the warm-up and I was in the toilets", said Barclay. What actually happened is unknown given that no one would speak about it after, but was it a sign of England losing their heads? The intensity and quality of play was what mattered.

Owen Farrell was involved, Scotland captain John Barclay had to pull away a number of his players and Farrell was pulled away by some of his teammates.

Jones was impressed by the home performance and blamed himself for only the second defeat of his 26 Tests in charge.

Following a pre-game scuffle in the tunnel, the opening exchanges were full-blooded but dominated by Scotland who showed plenty of attacking intent which yielded a penalty, kicked by Greig Laidlaw for a 3-0 lead. "That's disappointing", Jones said.

"We are a team that are in a competition where everyone wants to beat us and every game is a challenge for us". This well worked try gave them a foothold in the game just after half time.

The famous old trophy is Scotland's for the first time in 10 years after Huw Jones' double was added to by Sean Maitland's score during a blistering first half, in which Russell was central to the hosts.

"Going over there, whatever we did here, we'll have to up that performance".

Lukaku denied after the match that he had been bothered by the criticism toward him - "at the end of day, I just have to work hard for the team", he said - but the likely boost to the striker's morale was perhaps as important to United as the victory itself.

"We were ready for it". "They're very good at contesting across the field, and the breakdown is not one or two persons' responsibility, that was rugby 15 years ago". "We knew the significance of the game, we knew what we would get thrown at us at Murrayfield".
