Aki, Conway (2) and Ringrose watch Ireland’s Open Six Nations with bonus points

Scotland 20 England 17

England beat themselves at Murrayfield when their Grand Slam hopes crumbled and burned at the first hurdle.

And Eddie Jones would go without saying that this is some kind of self-inflicted loss that will burn for months.

On a Murrayfield night when Marcus Smith came of age, scoring in a brilliantly impromptu challenge, England lacked the maturity to find a match for them.

Instead, Luke Cowan-Dickie’s unnecessary yellow card proved the key moment when 70 minutes of almost total domination counted for absolutely nothing as they squandered the Calcutta Cup.

England are in control, with seven good points, just keeping their heads despite squandering so much possession.

But Cowan-Dickie, isolated against Darcy Graham on the lower wing of a sloped man, lost his preparation and ability, hitting the ball into the net without trying to catch it.
