England and Scotland will discover by Monday evening whether a tunnel fracas at Murrayfield on Saturday is to be investigated by Six Nations organisers.
The incident took place as the players left the pitch following their warm-ups ahead of Scotland’s 25-13 victory, and television footage appears to show a scuffle between England’s Owen Farrell Scotland No 8 Ryan Wilson, which ended when they were pulled apart by team-mates.
It falls to the matchday citing officer to examine the incident within the next 48 hours and to decide whether to launch an official inquiry.
After the match, England head coach Eddie Jones said he had no knowledge of the clash.
“I’ve been coaching a game,” Jones told reporters. “I’ve been pretty busy.
“Are you aware of it? You can show it to me after the press conference, then we can have a chat about it.
“In all seriousness, I don’t know about it.
“If there was, we shouldn’t let that detract from a great Scotland victory. Don’t get distracted by other things.”
When asked whether the scuffle suggested that England had lost their heads, Jones said: “Look, I don’t know.
“I don’t think so. These things happen.”
