Scotland produced a blistering display of attacking rugby to hand Eddie Jones just his second defeat as England head coach and end the visitors' Grand Slam aspirations with a 25-13 Six Nations victory at Murrayfield on Saturday.
Led by the brilliance of Huw Jones, who scored a brace of tries, and Finn Russell -- criticised before the game but at the heart of Scotland's best play -- the hosts opened up a 16-point halftime lead, with Sean Maitland also touching down.
England improved after the break with a converted Owen Farrell try, but Sam Underhill was shown a yellow card to inhibit England's hopes as the hosts expertly navigated the final 35 minutes to register a famous victory.
With Ireland earlier securing a bonus point win against Wales, their five-point lead over England in the standings puts them in a strong position to reclaim the title they last won in 2015.
