It was reminiscent of the horror show in the World Cup finals, and Lions boss Warren Gatland will scribble question marks against multiple names

The 150 Anniversary of the oldest event on the global calendar was more of a cause for tears than celebratory beers in English households.There was a special white shirt for a special occasion, but while England was able to deliver on the fashion front, it was the more important Sport front not possible at all

This was as miserable, listless, and flawed performance as England did in the Eddie Jones era.This was his first game when he took over five years ago, albeit in Murrayfield. As a benchmark, the ad discouraged England won that day in 2016. Five years later, it was like England had met for the first time in the West Car Park and tried to come to terms with each other.From start to finish, England was out of step and wrong if they had been a student they would have been detained for her repeated offenses

England had dismissed concerns about the lack of rugby, but the fact that some of them hadn’t played at all in the past two months showed in their desperately poor discipline, penalty for penalty, cost them ground, opportunity and increasing favor Referee Andrew Brace Four goals conceded in the first five minutes were a sad story and prompted Brace to warn English captain Owen Farrell Jonny May fiddled with an easy setting, a scrum collapsed halfway, a lineout in a promising position it was a comedy of mistakes except there was no laugh in the English box when Billy Vunipola No. 8 trudged to the touchline after being on 24 Minute had received a yellow card for accumulated violations

How different was the game two years ago when England took a 31-0 lead Here there was no poise, no stability, no sense of trust. There wasn’t a single aspect of the game in which England were entitled to any kind of Could raise basic skill, not to mention the performance The crowd creaked, the lineout wobbled Watching from a distance in their front rooms was that they didn’t have to fetch a few hundred pounds for the dubious pleasure. The TV’s “off” button must have been a tempting target for many Penalty in the 55th Minute was imposed, players would have cursed their cautious strokes with spread bets on the total allowed amount. England averaged just nine penalties per game in 2020

England was terribly angry and nervous.No matter Scotland is withering under the pressure of anticipation, as Jones had suggested, it was England that got the nerve of the first night after her double autumn trophy and eight straight wins, her lack of composure was bafflingly remembered of their terrible performance in the World Cup final against South Africa. On the stand, Lions head coach Warren Gatland must have scribbled question marks against several names

The only glimmer of hope for England was that they didn’t suffer as badly as they should have on the scoreboard The Thinnest Straw to Cling to Despite losing five senior players to injury, suspension and unavailability , this was still a seasoned English lineup, they dug their way down a hole in 2019 by letting Finn Russell run free to spark a famous comeback, where Russell jumped into the hole himself when he tripped Ben Youngs and got the yellow card Nevertheless did Scotland have the nous to cope with the time of his absence They were much safer than England, showed much more understanding

The Covid-induced neutrality of the venue has certainly helped Scotland, although the English players have had a lot of experience with soulless backdrops at their clubs.It shouldn’t be an excuse The Scots made their own noise, their voices echoing through the cavernous arena, admonishing each other each other to even greater efforts to achieve a groundbreaking victory It was well deserved
