Eddie Jones Quizzed On Scummy Irish Remarks In England Press Conference

Furlong 25 has much faith in Ireland’s more inexperienced players

"I don't have anything else to say on the matter". 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.

"We have to get a greater depth to our squad that can play Test rugby". We all belong to the Team of Us.

Anthony Watson retains his place at full-back, with Mike Brown confined to the bench for another week.

Sky Sports News are reporting that the Rugby Football Union (RFU) will not institute any disciplinary procedures against England head coach Eddie Jones after he apologised for the remarks.

The rugby this weekend is huge indeed as Ireland visit Twickenham hoping to win a Six Nations Grand Slam for only the third time overall and for the first time since 2009.

England fought back in the second period but were unable to overturn the deficit and Jones paid tribute to the Grand Slam champions.

"Ireland are preparing for a Grand Slam, they don't need any extra motivation", Jones added.

"If they don't beat Ireland, and they have three hard games against South Africa (in the away series that follows), they can go from a losing streak of three to six very quickly".

The comments came to light ahead of this weekend's England v Ireland Six Nations clash.

Dan Cole and Joe Launchbury, mainstays of England's starting line-up a year ago, have been replaced by Kyle Sinckler and George Kruis respectively, while Dylan Hartley is restored to his role as captain after passing a fitness test on Wednesday to prove he has recovered from his calf injury.

Successive defeats to Scotland and France have placed them under intense pressure as they seek to protect an unbeaten home record at Twickenham in the tournament that dates back to 2012.

"It's not what was missing in Paris, it's what Dylan brings to the side".

"We are still a good team, two losses doesn't mean we are not", said Hartley. "I think I've made every statement that I need to make on it".

"It's disappointing, there was no lack of effort but we struggled to execute at certain times". "We knew during that run that we were not good enough to reach where we wanted to get to", he said.
