Wales captain Jones commits future to Ospreys

18 March 2018

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

Explaining the most radical surgery he has applied for a tournament encounter, Jones said: "We felt we needed to make some changes, we need to get on the front foot". Are there any Welsh people here?

"I have made the statement and don't have anything else to say on it. So it's this little s*** place that has got 3 million people - 3 million!"

An RFU spokeswoman said: "Eddie has apologised for his inappropriate remarks, and the RFU is also very sorry for any offence caused and will apologise to the IRFU and WRU".

Joe Schmidt's Ireland will now be looking to repeat their win against the English and complete a famous Grand Slam triumph of their own at Twickenham this Saturday and they may be inspired by the ugly comments served up by Jones in this video clip. With England already enduring their worst campaign since 2009, Ireland have the chance to compound the dethroned champions' misery and inflict their third defeat of the championship - something they have not experienced since 2006 in a year that ended with head coach Andy Robinson losing his job.

"Both were part of training today, we were monitoring them for the first couple of days, but they took part today", said Gustard. "[They are a] good, tough side, well coached, play to their strengths".

Plastic particles found in bottled water
While the majority of the samples came in plastic bottles , water in glass bottles also held microplastic. Nestlé criticized the analysis, telling CBC that using Nile Red dye could "generate false positives".

In the week building up to Ireland's trip to Twickenham, footage has emerged showing Eddie Jones talking about 'the scummy Irish'. He plays off the back of quick ball whereas we think Wigglesworth could create some quick ball for us. But we'll get that back; we'll get them back.

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

Speaking publicly on the matter for the first time at England's team announcement press conference yesterday, Jones refused to expand on his remarks beyond issuing a further apology.

England went on to win their next seven matches but have now suffered back-to-back defeats against Scotland and France.

Kruis has also come into the second row to partner his Sarries team-mate Maro Itoje in the engine room.

Neal Hatley insists he has been drilling a pack of "angry" forwards this week as England look to end their Six Nations by ruining Ireland's Grand Slam bid.
