New Footage Emerges Of England Scotland Tunnel Scrap

In the pre-game build-up between England and Scotland on Saturday there was a bit of argy-bargy as the players headed back to the dressing room.

At the time it was unclear what exactly had gone on BBC's sideline reporter Sonia McLoughlin reported on the incident ahead of kickoff:

Owen Farrell was involved, Scotland captain John Barclay had to pull away a number of his players and Farrell was pulled away by some of his teammates.

But there has now been new footage which seems to confirm what we all suspected; that it was Owen Farrell who started it.

Whether it was an attempt to rattle the Scots before the match or that Farrell really, really, needed the jacks, we will never know, but in any case it didn't seem to help England as they slumped to a 25-13 loss to the Scots.

Six Nations Rugby said it would be "writing to the unions to request clarification on what happened in the tunnel" and that once both teams had responded that the tournament organisers would decide whether to begin an investigation or initiate disciplinary proceedings.
