GPT what did you expect??? Scotland should have had that try, replays shown ball was decked by Scotland player. Scotland just don't know how to put pressure on in the final 22

Final analysis on this game.  Scotland had only themselves to blame.  Too many mistakes, clueless in oppostions 22, Parks brutal, the list could go on & on.

I like Robinson but selecting Parks is unacceptable really.

Looks like it could be a rubbish Six Nations after all.  That was a truly terrible advert for the event. Start to end incompetence.

Scotland worse than expected, England better than expected but only marginally.

One of the most brutal games I have seen for some time.

I ended up well up on the game due to bets placed pre-match, which makes a change at the moment, but haven't been that frustrated about a result since the 2nd Lions test in 2009. Had lumps on the draw and Scotland 1-12 so the video ref and Rennie are high on my list of idiots of the year. Dan Parks was so bad it was unreal though.

Would love to say England won that game, but we all know that's not what happened.

There was a stat up on the screen towards the end showing that England had managed 40 phases of play in the match.

To put that into context, Munster went through 41 phases in a single move to set up a drop goal against Northampton in the Heineken Cup.

That was horrible today. As bad a spectacle as you'd see in any sport.

standard calcutta cup match up at Murrayfield.  The BBC comms seemed genuinely surprised the game was a total bag of shyte.

That is always the most likely outcome of this fixture these days.

Surprised by some of the comments here. Clancy did very little wrong in that match as far as I'm concerned... and I generally think he's a guesser. Scotland had the chance to score a try 20 metres ahead of where the advantage was given, before it (the try) wasn't given, so that's advantage over as far as I'm concerned.

Kriskin above sums it up well for me and Parks wasn't even the worst player on the pitch. Ben Youngs was abysmal in every facet of play.

tell me big dunc if laidlaw had gone for a DG & missed rather than chip ahead what would have happened???

you know full well they would have gone straight back for the pen, the ONLY advantage Scotland could have gained from the chip ahead was scoring a try otherwise (to state the bleeding obvious) where the fek is the advantage over the pen. The TMO took so long to make his mind up (incorrectly) that the ref forgot, simple as that.
can't believe no scotland player reminded him though.
he also did nothing about foden's deliberate knock on which cost a try scoring opportunity & should have been a yellow card.

That is very much the problem NL. If you asked Scotland if they would like a kick for 3, or an outside chance of a try where their winger has to outpace 2 players who are ahead of him and then ground the ball, which is bouncing all over the place, which do you think they would take?

Advantage law is to get the game going and prevent negativity, but if teams are penalised for trying anything they will simply have to stop doing it and take kicks instead.

it's on the bbc i player. the pen was inside the 22 the kick came from the next phase of play and advantage over was never called. the dozy fekker forgot.

i think one of the players did ask about it after all, you can hear the ref say no to something.
