Eddie Jones: England players lost control

A victory for Wales would secure a Grand Slam for Warren Gatland's men, while Ireland also has a chance of retaining the Six Nations title if it triumphs in Cardiff.

Jones's team capitulated in spectacular fashion at Twickenham, conceding five second-half tries and nearly gifting Scotland the Calcutta Cup after taking what should have been a commanding 31-0 lead before half time.

Darcy Graham had mixed emotions after full-time of Scotland's insane match against England.

Laidlaw's penalty lacked the legs and Farrell was replaced by George Ford as the tension ramped up, before Johnson and Ford exchanged tries in a heart-stopping finish.

"It is 100% mental, we will get that right."

England coach Eddie Jones says he will protect Joe Cokanasiga from media hyperbole after leaving the wing out of the squad to face Scotland.

"It's not something you can fix easily, it's going to take some digging deep into the team's psyche".

"My clear goal is to be in this side for the World Cup in 2019 and we have unbelievable potential here". They were carving us up a bit and we were chasing our tails.

"We played some brilliant rugby but again we should have been further ahead at half time and the game should have been put to bed. 'You've got to keep players" feet on the ground, ' he said. We then scored some great tries in that second half which was really pleasing. They must take a huge amount of credit for their second-half fightback.

We'll see if the comments Green made during his postgame media session will spark any animosity from Houston for the next meeting. But that's what helped the Dubs defeat one of the teams who beat them three times this season.

"It is a fantastic achievement", added Jones. It's always a combination of things. We were seduced by the scoreboard, but it was a lesson and we are all disappointed.

'We've got a good plan in place for him [Cokanasiga].

'Joe's a good, young player and we're looking after him.

Jones clung to the positives of experiencing the setback now, rather than in Japan. "We are ready to play well ourselves". But it's a lesson.

"Because you do that in the pool game against Tonga, for instance, then you can find yourselves in a hard situation going forward". Jones's handling of this precious talent was endorsed by England captain Owen Farrell, who noted similarities with how he handled another much-hyped youngster.

"But we gave them some easy points, and we couldn't get control of the game back". It was a game we could have won at the end, but the overriding emotion is that we are pleased. Although we probably didn't start with a thought we could deliver results like this, it grew.

Fly-half Farrell was replaced by George Ford in the second half at Twickenham, moments after he was fortunate to avoid a yellow card for what appeared to be a late tackle on Darcy Graham.

"And part of it is getting them the right amount of Tests to get the required level of confidence to play well in the bigger games".

"The massive improvement for us is in our mindset", he said. "We will have to look at ourselves a bit deeper and perhaps that's a good thing".
