Wales will lift the title if they beat Ireland, with three bonus points awarded for completing a Grand Slam. Jones' men brushed off the disappointment by racing to a 31-0 lead in the Calcutta Cup clash.

However, the drama wasn't over yet, and Farrell's replacement Ford remarkably crossed the line in the very last phase of play, converting the try to salvage a draw and break Scottish hearts.

"It was 100 per cent mental. I don't know", Jones said. "He'll be ready by the World Cup".

"It's a bit of a recurring theme for us". These two bitter rivals really looked to be enjoying themselves in possession and there were stunning tries for either side - from a fine first-half England lineout to Johnson's fearless late dash. They put a lot of pressure on us and we struggled to respond.

"He (Cokanasiga) is a young player and we don't need to rush him".

"It's a great lesson for us".

"We still have a long way to go don't get me wrong but it's going to be massively important for Saturday". He showed courage to play 80 minutes, to tackle hard, and to carry hard after missing four months of the season.

England's only loss came in Cardiff, where a similar collapse proved costly as Jones' men ultimately finished second in the championship.

So you pick a Test where they're playing on a flat track, bat them at six, let them get runs, then you quietly build them up.' With the World Cup just six months away, Jones added: 'I don't need to fast-track him. It's always a combination of things.

"We got seduced by the scoreboard". "But England's defence was so strong that if we tried to play in our half it could have meant that we were further behind on the scoreboard, so we had to talk through that process".

Youngs made his global debut off the bench against the Scots in 2010 at Murrayfield, on the wing, and this Saturday (March 16) makes his 85th appearance for the national side when they welcome a Scottish team looking to win their first match at Twickenham in nearly 40 years.

Jones clung to the positives of experiencing the setback now, rather than in Japan.

"Ultimately, we're the team that's really disappointed to have drawn the game". He'll be ready by the World Cup.

Then came Johnson's moment as the visitors bore a hole in England's defence and he was left free, able to dodge despairing challenges and go under the posts for what looked to be the victor. We had to be better with our kick-chase if we were kicking, and make sure we weren't drawing their back three into open space, which is what happened in the first half. We got in a momentum rut and we couldn't get out of it.

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