Oi - Jones - No!!!

Frankly the last thing Eddie Jones needed this week - as he tries to salvage something from the wreckage of this year's Six Nations - was for details to emerge of a talk he gave to RFU sponsors in July 2017 in which he described Wales as a "shit little place" and referred to our friends from the Emerald Isle as  the "scummy Irish".

No doubt he thought at the time that it might raise a laugh. Who knows, despite being crassly unfunny, maybe it did? However, if he honestly believed that comments like that would never see the light of day again then he was being, at best, horribly naive.

He has, apparently, apologised unreservedly, no doubt hoping that a line will be drawn under the whole affair. I'm afraid I'm not convinced he will get off so easily...
