Punishment may not be over for Scotland as Brown is cited for early tip tackle

England began carving Scotland apart immediately after Brown was sin-binned on Saturday.

AS IF THE body count in the Scottish treatment room wasn’t enough of a painful reminder from the 61 – 21 thumping sustained in Twickenham, this week’s disciplinary committee will assess a important early moment in the Six Nations and Triple Crown decider.

Hooker Fraser Brown was sin-binned for his second minute tackle on Elliott Daly, who was subsequently replaced after passing a HIA.

The Glasgow front row will be in London tomorrow to face a disciplinary committee, who will judge whether the offence was worth a red card and further sanction.
