What England and Scotland say happened in the Six Nations tunnel fracas

Adjust Comment Print

Six Nations Rugby has written to both teams seeking clarification over what happened as the players left the pitch upon completion of their warm-ups for the 25-13 victory registered by Scotland.

Once the Six Nations have received explanations from the English and Scottish unions as to what caused the flare-up they will decide whether to take the matter further or let it drop, putting it down to pre-match tension that momentarily flared out of hand.

The Times reports that England are expected to say the incident was sparked by Wilson, talking to Ford, and that Farrell was defending his fly-half.

While the players can not be cited for the tunnel incident which occurred before the whistle, Wilson was citing for alleged contact with the eye area.

BetVictor's Charlie McCann added: "It was a good day for football punters yesterday with all three favourites winning in the big games in England, although Arsenal scoring- not that they ever looked likely to- would have hurt even more".

"We've got to take our medicine and learn. We lacked proper spacing in defence and we've got to find out why", said Jones.

According to The Independent, the RFU "have told the Six Nations that Farrell was not the instigator of the conflict and was provoked".

England flanker Sam Underhill has escaped a citing after being shown a yellow card for a no-arms tackle in the latter stages of the Calcutta Cup match.

Betway's Alan Alger said: "Sunday wasn't too kind as United fans were out in force backing their side- we also saw trebles with United as the meat in the sandwich of odds-on sides Tottenham, who grabbed a late victor, and Man City, who weren't tested by an abysmal Arsenal at Wembley".
