Nonetheless, both sides went in at the same time, and a flashpoint erupted, with Owen Farrell and John Barclay reportedly involved.
After years upon years of agony against their greatest enemy, Scotland handed Eddie Jones only his second loss as England coach and pitched themselves right into the championship picture. Second half I was very proud of the effort of the boys.
Scotland had not scored a try against England at Murrayfield since wing Simon Danielli went over in 2004.
"Going over there, whatever we did today we'll have to up that performance".
The only other time it happened was in last year's Six Nations Grand Slam decider when, having already wrapped up the title, England were suffocated by Ireland at the Aviva Stadium. Like England, the Scots have two victories from three and can still win the title.
Greig Laidlaw kicked Scotland into an early lead with a penalty - the first of a worrying 13 concede by England - before Farrell replied in kind. Calls were growing for the introduction of promotion and relegation in the championship, giving the likes of Georgia and Romania hope of a spot in the Northern Hemisphere jamboree.
"I think in our last nine games we've lost one and that was a real close one".

"It gives an interesting approach to you guys and I think it's great for the game".
The first half saw Scotland score three tries - a tally made all the more remarkable given it was 14 years since they had last crossed England's try-line in a Calcutta Cup clash at Murrayfield. The Scotland fly-half was masterful as he orchestrated the end of his side's 10-year wait for victory over England, the highlight proving to be his long floated pass to Huw Jones that initiated Sean Maitland's try.
England came out for the second half 22-6 down - its largest halftime deficit in 136 meetings against Scotland - and scored its only try nearly immediately through center Owen Farrell. It didn't spark a comeback, though.
The visitors' chances of victory all but ended when replacement Sam Underhill was sin-binned for a no-arms tackle in the 66th, when the score was 22-13.
England worked deep into home territory and were rewarded by two Farrell penalties, but their whitewash was breached in the 16th minute when Jones hacked on Finn Russell's grubber and pounced when Jonathan Joseph failed to gather the ball.
"They were too good for us", Jones said.
She added: "We were at full capacity during the first game, so we had a queue stretching up the road, lots of people were trying to get in and have drinks before the Scotland match". It would also tee them up for a Grand Slam game against England, in Twickenham, on March 17.
