Jones sorry for derogatory comments about Ireland, Wales

Yet, it's still surprising to hear that Eddie Jones invited one of the match officials for Saturday's clash with Ireland to referee England's training session on Tuesday.

Jones said: "To be continuing my journey with the Ospreys is probably something I wouldn't have predicted at the start of my career, but having the opportunity to sign a new NDC at this point helps with the quality and quantity of the rugby that I play and hopefully will prolong my playing opportunities".

An RFU spokesman added: "Eddie has apologised for his inappropriate remarks, and the RFU is also very sorry for any offence caused".

The video shows Jones giving a talk on leadership for Fuso, the Japanese parent company of England sponsors Mitsubishi. The Rugby Football Union said it would apologise to the Irish and Welsh unions.

Ireland sealed their third ever Grand Slam with a 24-15 win at Twickenham, and Jones has described the Six Nations winners as "a good, tough team". Footage was uploaded by Fuso to YouTube in July a year ago, but wasn't picked up by media outlets until this week. I'm still dirty about that game, but we will get 'em back. "It's something I'll reconsider after the game, the only thing I am anxious about at the moment is the game". Then again, if it makes for a more free-flowing, uninterrupted game of rugby, then we're all for it, but it's hard to accept that being England's primary motivation.

"Wales! Who knows Wales?".

"We need to get on the front foot against Ireland and we've selected a team to do that", said Jones. Jones asked. "Are there any Welsh people here?"

Ireland face opposition showing a total of ten changes, three of them positional switches, following the 22-16 defeat by France in Paris five days ago.

England are bidding to avoid three Test defeats in a row for the first time under Jones and Northampton hooker Hartley added: "We obviously had a bit of learning over the last few weeks but we're hungry to get a result".

Meanwhile, Jacob Stockdale wrote his own piece of history by breaking the record for the most tries scored in a single Six Nations season as he dotted down on Saturday.
