    Those of us old enough, remember the broken goal posts at Wembley. Here's the latest, from some gingers
    after Eddie Jones posed for a selfie with them. Would Irish, Welsh or English rugby fans behave this way?.:

    Where England are concerned, quite a large number of Scots have a bloody great chip on their shoulder

    Because it happens so rarely they don’t know how to celebrate with dignity. Lack of practice.

    Idiots. Bad winners are worse than bad losers.

    Unacceptable behaviour, but don't tar all Scots with the same brush - I was fully outnumbered on Saturday, but apart from some small banter in the immediate aftermath of the game, it was a jovial atmosphere.

    I've lived up here nearly 20 years, and have hardly ever been subjected to any anti-English bullshit - most are ambivalent towards England, but comments like Hastings has made can rile them up - very much doubt the guys in the video were even rugby fans, as rugby attracts a completely different social group to them.

    They don't get much success, be it football, rugby or most sports (except tennis!) so Saturdays win was a celebration, but fueled by alcohol, these idiots have taken it too far - hopefully BTP will get them and press charges.

    Somebody should have told them Eddie is an Australian, he’s not even English.

    Edward I had the right idea about the Scots, old Longshanks famously said "The only problem with Scotland is it's full of Scots"...

    Old Longshanks had a lot to answer for as far as The Scots are concerned.

    English men have become in general sheep
    The English put chips on the shoulders of everyone ... it’s in their nature
    Already looking forward to the English going out of the World Cup

    We will see some debate then
    Southgate could loose the changing room
