Eddie Jones: ‘We’ve played 23 Tests and only lost one to the scummy Irish’ – video

Eddie Jones has been left embarrassed after footage emerged of the England head coach making inappropriate comments about Ireland and Wales. The video shows Jones giving a talk on leadership for Fuso, the Japanese parent company of England sponsors Mitsubishi. He tells the audience: ‘We’ve played 23 Tests and have only lost one Test to the scummy Irish. I’m still dirty about that game.’ Earlier in the talk, Jones discusses Japan’s under-20 side losing to their Welsh counterparts after he took over. He said: ‘Wales. Who knows Wales?
