But Red rose The stars had to smoke in the final moments of the game when referee Ben O’Keefe failed to blow the penalty in their favor.

If they make that official, England could potentially win the match and get off to a perfect start to their Six Nations campaign.

And one suggested that Jones’ side had been made difficult by Strauss, the former Scotland captain.

He believes O’Keefe made some inconsistent decisions throughout the game.

And the referee’s failure to award a late penalty to England is nothing short of ‘controversial’.

“I was quite surprised that nothing happened because the referees are often quick to blow penalties, especially with the direction of making the game more interesting.

“These days you usually have a reset error and then a penalty, so it was controversial.

“There is human error involved in everything, but going forward there needs to be a friendly process to make it better for everyone – the referee and the players most importantly.

“As a former player, I feel that there should be more consequences because some decisions are big decisions and can change the dynamics of an entire tournament.”
