Eddie Jones Responds After Scummy Irish Slur Video Emerges

Eddie Jones apologises for 'scummy Irish' remark made last year

England rugby union coach Eddie Jones has apologised for offensive comments he made past year about Wales and Ireland.

Some extra spice has been added to Ireland's quest to complete the Six Nations Grand Slam against England at Twickenham this weekend.

"I think England have got the players for a rucking game".

The Australian made the comments last July during a seminar on leadership for England sponsor Fuso, the parent company of Mitsubishi.

Earlier, Jones had discussed Japan's under-20s losing to their Welsh counterparts 125-0 shortly after he took over as Brave Blossoms head coach in 2012.

"It will be something different for England to get their head around and more focus on the disappointments and trying to rectify that", said Dawson. Jones said. "I am still dirty about that game. Who knows Wales? It's this little s**t place that has got three million people - three million!" "Is [sic] any Welsh people here?"

The English RFU said it would apologise to the sport's ruling bodies in Ireland and Wales and a spokesperson described Jones's comments as "inappropriate". So it's this little s. place that has got three million people.


Grovelling Jones, who has dodged a Six Nations rap for the verbal attack, said: "I would like to say I apologise for the remarks - I sincerely mean that and I really don't have anything else to say on the matter".

"Are they the sorts of behaviours that we want to see?"

Captain Dylan Hartley is still struggling with the calf injury that kept him out of the France defeat, and wing Elliot Daly - the only player to emerge from Paris with credit - is continuing to receive treatment on his foot.

Joe Schmidt's Ireland average roughly 142.5 rucks per match (139.5 success rate) compared to England's numbers, 116 and 109.7, respectively.

Don Armand will hope to make a splash for England after answering Eddie Jones' Six Nations SOS, a call-up that cut short a swimming session for his daughter.
