Edinburgh’s Jones scored his first Test try against France last Sunday to put Scotland ahead 15-13 with a successful conversion by Duncan Weir to come.
Yet moments later he was at fault for France’s decisive try when opposite wing Julien Malzieu muscled his way past Jones before off-loading for Maxime Medard to scoreto secure a second-straight RBS 6 Nations victory for Les Bleus.
Those three minutes dominated Jones’ thinking in the game’s aftermath but he’s now accepting it as a lesson to be learned and is adamant that he will do just that.
“Across the weekend it was always on my mind,” the 23-year-old told the Scotsman.
“I was really disappointed, obviously, but it is something I think I need to move on from to make the tackle the next time.
“It’s about learning. I missed that tackle and they scored. That’s how steep the learning curve is. I need to learn from it and make the tackle next time.”
The lifting of Scotland’s dry run – in which they didn’t score a try in four games - is a source of pride for Jones and he’s enjoying playing attacking rugby with the pressure off.
“There was a lot of pressure before the tournament and after the first game,” said Jones.
“But, arguably, we should have had two in Wales and we scored two at the weekend.
“It does lift a bit of pressure because it was always there, the question of whether we could score tries, and I think we have shown we can in the last two games.”
