Gregor Townsend has blueprint for Scotland's future after brilliant Calcutta Cup triumph

26 February 2018

"Wales gave away two penalties in the whole game - I don't know if that's ever been done before, that disciplined". If there was, we shouldn't let that detract from a great Scotland victory. "Don't get distracted by other things".

"Have you got an Iphone 10? The vision's better on an Iphone 10".

There was a time, not long ago, when a debate centred on Scotland's worthiness of a Six Nations place.

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

Barclay knows victory this weekend - and the Scots' first since 2008 - would rank as a major surprise but reckons it could fire his team into title contention. What actually happened is unknown given that no one would speak about it after, but was it a sign of England losing their heads? After all, something got to England, because in 25 previous matches under Eddie Jones, England have never played this badly. England ran this play to isolate Greig Laidlaw defending on the blind side and they did it with great precision.

A Dublin date with Ireland, who top this season's table with a ideal record of three wins from three matches, lies in wait for Scotland when they resume their Six Nations campaign on March 10.

Jones, beaten for just the second time in 26 Tests since taking charge after the 2015 Rugby World Cup, confessed at full time that he could have few complaints about the scoreline.

The England coach insisted that it was Scotland who "deserve all the credit" following a fantastic performance but he will now spend the next fortnight searching for solutions as he looks to fix his side's shortcomings in defence and at the breakdown. On that occasion, Jones struck a very similar chord, but there was no backlash or alarm bells as the loss ended a world record-equalling 18-match winning streak.

"For me personally, it's really exciting; you want to test yourself against these guys and see where we are at". We invited them to the game and they took full advantage. That's disappointing. I have got take responsibility for the performance because we weren't there.

Something had gone wrong, and afterwards, Eddie Jones did what Eddie Jones does - he refused to blame the players and took responsibility himself. "It's a quiet changing room, it's disappointing and some players are down, but we have to learn from it".

Jones scored two of the Scots' three first-half tries - one an individual score from near halfway - as they blew away England before halftime then weathered an inevitable response from the visitors with a brilliant defensive effort and indomitable spirit.

"We were ready for it".
