No Action On Tunnel Row
Written by RockSport on February 28, 2018
Scotland and England will not face disciplinary action after their players clashed in the tunnel before Saturday’s Six Nations match at Murrayfield.
As the teams left the field after the warm-up, England back Owen Farrell and Scotland forward Ryan Wilson appeared to clash at the entrance to the tunnel.
Six Nations organisers gathered evidence from both teams and match officials.
A fan also captured part of the incident on mobile phone footage but that footage was not used.
They [ 6 Nations organisers ] said there was “no evidence of violent conduct”.
A statement read: “There was some evidence of pushing and shoving in the tunnel at the relevant time, but no clear evidence of violent conduct or similar against any individual player.”
The Six Nations said it will write to the Scottish Rugby Union and the Rugby Football Union to remind them of their responsibilities.
Scotland won the game to record their first victory over England in 10 long years.
