Six Nations: England axe Cokanasiga for Scotland clash

The 27-year-old also had a pass intercepted by opposite number Finn Russell, who raced clear to score a converted try under the posts as Scotland stunned Twickenham with five second-half tries.

Doesn't mean Eddie Jones won't still be desperate for victory in the oldest global rugby match of them all. We will get it right'. He later said he didn't feel safe traveling by public transport.

In the event of the draw, Scotland retained the Calcutta Cup.

Scotland have not won at Twickenham since 1983 and, after winning their opening game of this year's Six Nations against Italy, they lost their next three amid a lengthy injury list.

Gregor Townsend, Scotland's coach, described the game as unlike any he has known.

"Those records aren't in our minds at all", Scotland flanker Magnus Bradbury said.

With the focus now exclusively on the World Cup in September, Jones should be greatly concerned by how easily his team surrendered such a big lead.

The English have their eyes on a much grander title, but the Six Nations trophy isn't in their hands heading into the final weekend.

Infantino tried to find an agreement but the meetings and talks held in the hours prior served no goal . As host country, India automatically qualifies for the 16-team showpiece event.

By the time England kick off at 1700GMT they will know whether they are playing for the title - if Ireland have beaten Wales earlier in the day - or just the Calcutta Cup should Wales triumph in Cardiff to secure a Grand Slam.

Before today, England, Ireland and Wales looked very evenly matched.

Jones considers this to be a particularly pronounced issue in England following a performance by Cokanasiga against Italy which drew comparisons with the great Jonah Lomu.

Jones said Cokanasiga would definitely feature in some of England's four World Cup warm-up games in August and would be "ready" for the tournament in Japan.

The Australian added: "We've got a good plan in place for him". "He'll be ready by the World Cup". "We don't need to rush him, we'll bring him through carefully and he's got a long career ahead of him. I've got some reasonable experience doing this".

Avenging last year's bitter defeat at Murrayfield was now England's aim and as they ran in four tries to build a 31-0 lead inside half an hour, they were on track to mark their last competitive match before the World Cup with an ominous statement.

Ben Youngs will become England's most-capped halfback in making his 85th appearance, one more than Danny Care on the all-time list. That meant Sean Maitland was at fullback and Byron McGuigan on the left wing.
