SHARE

As the players left the field after their warm-up England's Owen Farrell and Scotland's Ryan Wilson appeared to have clashed at the entrance of the tunnel.  

In some of the video footage, Farrell is seen to be charging into the tunnel.

Six Nations Rugby gathered material from the England Rugby Union (RFU) and Scotland Rugby Unions (SRU), as well as from the BBC and the match officials for their investigations and found that there is "no violent conduct"

According to the statement, they "concluded that 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 statement further stated that Six Nations Rugby will remind all Unions of their's and their players' obligations, and will write to Scotland and England.

However, "no further disciplinary action will be taken,"

Scotland eventually won 25-13 – their first victory over England since 2008.

England travel to France for their next clash on March 10 while Scotland visits Ireland.
