Six Nations: Scotland's Ryan Wilson cited for Nathan Hughes incident

Six Nations: Scotland's Ryan Wilson cited for Nathan Hughes incident

Six Nations released a statement saying Wilson was being cited for "an alleged act of foul play" by the independent citing commissioner which contravened Law 9.12 of the game.

Kindred Group's Ali Gill said: "In the Six Nations there was a mix of professional joy and personal pain for the traders as Scotland shocked England in Murrayfield, ending another year's hopes of a Grand Slam".

Scotland's 25-13 victory provided the standout shock in a bumper weekend of sport full of rugby, horseracing, football and the winter Olympics.

After the match, England head coach Eddie Jones said he had no knowledge of the clash.

From the above footage, though, it appears as though Farrell is more in a rush to get back to the dressing room rather than instigating a brawl with Ryan Wilson or any other Scottish player.

Scotland fly-half Finn Russell hailed what he felt was a "world-class" team performance by the hosts.

But instead Russell took the bolder course, his well-weighted grubber kick causing panic in England's defence and bounced kindly for outside centre Jones, who dived on the loose ball for a try under the posts which Laidlaw duly converted to make it 10-3.

His long pass from just outside the 22 released Jones who sprinted clear before being tackled by wing Jonny May.

"It was a bit shocking to find myself in the middle of a melee at Murrayfield as it's not something I've ever witnessed before", she said.

Match referee Nigel Owens has no direct jurisdiction prior to kick-off, although he can comment in his match report.

"If there was, we shouldn't let that detract from a great Scotland victory".

Scotland captain John Barclay said he did not see what happened because he was already in the toilet. The incident occurred in the first half with No 8 Nathan Hughes.

Replacements: 16 Jamie George, 17 Joe Marler, 18 Harry Williams, 19 George Kruis, 20 Sam Underhill, 21 Richard Wigglesworth, 22 Ben Te'o, 23 Jack Nowell.
