Jones vows England will learn lessons from Scotland draw

Jack Nowell returns from injury

It appears that, in the end, Townsend was able to convince Russell that the kicking option was not intrinsically wrong but needed to be better executed - and with everyone on the same wavelength, Scotland were able to dictate the game for most of the second half.

GREGOR TOWNSEND has identified three players in particular who have demonstrated that they truly are global animals after stepping up to the plate during yesterday's Calcutta Cup clash at Twickenham, helping Scotland mount a sensational fightback from 31-0 down to take a seven-point lead with four minutes to go.

England captain Owen Farrell, meanwhile, struggled to explain what had happened during the second half. We've got a good plan in place for him.

But it was the prelude to a stunning riposte from Scotland, who ran in the next five tries, two of them finished by jet-heeled wing Darcy Graham, as the overwhelming favourites fell to pieces.

England can still win the championship by beating Scotland, providing Wales loses to Ireland on Saturday.

"Maybe having finishers like Dylan Hartley coming off the bench in the final quarter with a calm head, is something Eddie Jones looks at".

"What a rollercoaster of emotions", Nicol told BBC Radio 5 Live. "I remember he did it a little bit with Maro and he turned out all right", he said.

And his success in the paint overshadowed RJ Barrett's 5-of-15 shooting night. "He's a good player", Maye said of Williamson. North Carolina led by 13 in the first half and 71-67 with less than 3 minutes left but couldn't hold on.

"But we gave them some easy points, and we couldn't get control of the game back". They played some good rugby and punished us.

"It was 100 per cent mental". These two bitter rivals really looked to be enjoying themselves in possession and there were stunning tries for either side - from a fine first-half England lineout to Johnson's fearless late dash.

Scotland were 31-0 down at a place where they haven't won since 1983.

There are so many questions that remain about England. But we scored a try and then another and started to believe and scored some great tries, some of them were brilliant ...

Before today, England, Ireland and Wales looked very evenly matched.

England were rattled and replacement scrum-half Greig Laidlaw fell short with a long-range penalty attempt in swirling conditions that if successful would have seen them creep ahead for the first time. Considering it was George Ford who saved England's bacon it must be said the change had the desired effect but it is concerning to say the least that Jones had to remove his leader from the fray and again the question must be asked whether Farrell assumes too much responsibility in this side. 'He'll be ready by the World Cup.' That rather suggests Cokanasiga has already gone a long way to convincing the management that he has what it takes to be a star of the present as well as the future.
