Six Nations: England axe Cokanasiga for Scotland clash

Eddie Jones admitted his side 'got out of jail' in their 38-38 draw with Scotland

"Scotland is a hard side".

Wales had already secured the title by beating Ireland earlier in the day and that seemed to take the shackles off both sides who went hell for leather at each other. Jones' men brushed off the disappointment by racing to a 31-0 lead in the Calcutta Cup clash.

But England finally awoke from their slumber and after a period of extended pressure, Ford worked a gap through the centre and lunged for the line, converting his own try to seal the highest-scoring draw in worldwide rugby history.

"It was 100 per cent mental".

"It's not something you can fix easily but we know what the problem is". They were carving us up a bit and we were chasing our tails.

"I said "you're telling us to kick and when we kick it they're just running it back and cut us open and when we run it they're just hitting us behind the gain line and winning the ball back". When you're a young batsman and your first Test is against the West Indies in Perth and you bat No 3, you might not get too many runs.

"We gave England a lot of what they wanted in the first half", he added. But we scored a try and then another and started to believe and scored some great tries, some of them were brilliant ... Two of them came in the back three after injuries ruled out Tommy Seymour and Blair Kinghorn.

"It's a great achievement but I know for him the most important thing is to win on Saturday", said Jones, who famously threw a bag of candies at Youngs when he first took over, saying he was too heavy. It's always a combination of things. We were seduced by the scoreboard, but it was a lesson and we are all disappointed. And sometimes it can be one player that does it and then it becomes infectious. "We are ready to play well ourselves".

"He's a good young player and we're looking after him", Jones told a media conference.

Jones clung to the positives of experiencing the setback now, rather than in Japan. It was a game we could have won at the end, but the overriding emotion is that we are pleased.

'He's still learning from being around the squad and will feature heavily in our warm-up games for the World Cup'. Then you get a good player.

"So we'd rather have those lessons now and we'll do everything we can to learn from them and make sure it doesn't happen again". There was much more balance to our game in the second half.

"We let our foot off of the gas and couldn't get control of the game back", he said.

"The halftime score was pleasing but Scotland were good in the second half".
