All that started with Barclay.

Just as Ford made a half break that looked like him getting into the game Barclay got one of the best turnovers you will see.

If Russell is already standing still behind Care's pass when he knocks it on, how can he be not offside? NB seems both sides are doing that.

Bloody hell - how many lucky bounces and fluky carries is Jones going to get this game? Good luck to the boy, but sheesh!

On the other hand have England been within 10 metres of Scotland's line? No. Says it all.

So the TMO has seen the eye gouge from the Scottish 8 but not brought it to the attention of the ref?

Brown and Watson have been incompetent. England's pack is too cumbersome with three locks and a big number 8.

Scotland are ripping England to pieces right now.

England do not look like scoring a try in this game  at the moment.

Hope they do better in the second half. Scotland deserved winners at the moment.

Eye gouge? Not really

Fingers are in the eye area making a grabbing motion. It's a ban by the letter of the law for reckless play (minimum) ergo it's a red card.

Substitutions are going to be huge. Scotland are playing us off the park at the moment but I still think our bench are worth a couple of tries once Scotland tire. Can they keep it up?

What was Farrell doing for Jones second try? He seemingly backed away from him and left Hughes on his own. Brown and Watson really should have brought him down but that was one powerful finish.

Scotland are fit enough that tireing won't be too much of a problem. Remember these players are used to playing at breakneck speed for 80 mins
