England coach Eddie Jones apologises for insulting Ireland and Wales

Tommy Conlon March 13 2018 12:01am The Times Not on our ground how Eddie Jones can rally his troops Tommy Conlon

The video shows Jones addressing a conference at Fuso, the parent company of England sponsors Mitsubishi, previous year where he referred to the Irish as "scummy" and described Wales as a "shit place".

"We've got to keep working at our game. We will get that back, don't worry, we have them next year at home, we will get 'em back!"

Wales, who host France on Saturday, are second on 11 with England and France on 10. Are there any Welsh people here?

Tasmanian-born Jones also described Wales as "a little sh*t place".

In an statement issued by the Rugby Football Union (RFU), the governing body of rugby union in England, Jones said there were no excuses for his comments.

Head coach Eddie Jones insists England must stick to their methods if they're to turn their form around after losing a third straight Championship match on Super Saturday.

"We will we apologising to the IRFU and WRU". This year Ireland travel to take on England in Twickenham, with similar stakes on the line.

He scored on an and-1 drive and then knocked down a 3-pointer from the top of the key after a behind-the-back pass from KJ Maura. Up to this point, Vermont had only lost one conference game in two seasons and was the very last team to lose in league play.

Up front, fit-again hooker Dylan Hartley returns as captain after missing the defeat in Paris with a calf injury. "They're available for selection".

Until last month, that was the only blot on Jones's England record, which now stands at 24 wins from 27 Tests with three defeats.

"Obviously we're really disappointed", Gustard added.

"That's the nice part of leadership, you're job is to get the most out of each person and to do that, you want them to work together and be a regulated self-driven thing".

England are not represented in the top five for individual carries, a league table that the injured Billy Vunipola would have surely muscled in on, while Ireland are responsible for the first, CJ Stander, and fourth, Bundee Aki. The second-row, who featured on the British and Irish Lions tour last summer, has been deployed at blindside flanker this season with Maro Itoje and Joe Launchbury playing at lock, and it further deepens England's back-row concerns given they are running out of experienced Test options.

The head coach has since apologised unreservedly following the emergence of the footage, but it appears that Ireland's rugby supporters have gotten the last laugh with Saturday's spectacular win over England at Twickenham.
