Owen Farrell At The Centre Of Heated Scuffle Before England & Scotland Game

The Voice Of The Montage Eddie Butler Talks Calcutta Cup And Six Nations

England's Grand Slam dream is over as superb Scotland win the Calcutta Cup

Eddie Jones cut a contrite figure as he dissected England's performance in a surprise 25-13 defeat against Scotland at Murrayfield.

Huw Jones went over for two tries and Sean Maitland also touched down, with impressive fly-half Finn Russell orchestrating all three scores before Scotland closed out the match.

The match was a personal triumph for Russell, who had been taken off by coach Gregor Townsend in the 65th minute of Scotland's preceding 32-26 win over France. The royal welcome to Princess Anne seemed to take that little bit longer, so much so that when the backing anthem finished, she still had six Scottish players to meet and greet, before an additional word with captain John Barclay.

"I couldn't have played like I did today without the boys round me giving me the support and knowing their game plan as well as I did".

At least 1 killed, 6 injured in Kabul blast near North Atlantic Treaty Organisation headquarters
A second suicide vehicle bomber targeted an NDS compound near a police headquarters in Helmand's provincial capital Lashkar Gah. A blast erupted Saturday in the Afghan capital of Kabul , local media reported citing the Interior Ministry.

"We played so well and executed the game plan, well not as well as we could, but well enough". Scotland, however, were magnificent: they stood up to the challenge, and perhaps laid the gauntlet to England before kick-off.

"I said after the first weekend that one game does not make you a awful team just as one win doesn't make you the best team in the world".

Next up for the Scots is a crunch contest with Six Nations leaders Ireland in Dublin, while England will look to bounce back against France.

Eddie Jones was asked about the incident afterwards but he stated he didn't know anything about it.

"It was fantastic to go out and beat England".

More rains forecast for IL as flooding continues
Joseph River rising to more than 11 feet - surpassing a record of 10.9 feet set in 1982, reports The South Bend Tribune. A storm system is going to bring snow and ice to parts of New England, but Pennsylvania will primarily see heavy rain.

It was a first win over England in 10 years, and there was a revelry and electricity inside Murrayfield not witnessed or felt in years.

England will be annoyed with their general execution and Eddie Jones may regret taking on Scotland's back row with only one fetcher.

Farrell kept the visitors in touch with two penalties, but their attack was lethargic and in defence they simply could not contain Scotland with Russell and Jones combining to create the field position for Maitland to dive over in the corner. Laidlaw missed the tricky conversion but Scotland led 15-6.

Jones pointed out that his champions had won the second-half 7-3, mainly thanks to Farrell's well-taken try, but Scotland were already out of sight having dominated the breakdown.

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.
