or that of anyone else in his England squad.
“It’s a bit like Red Riding Hood and the wolf when the wolf comes dressed up as the grandmother,” Jones said at England’s Bagshot training base, southwest of London, on Monday.
“You always have to be careful when All Black coaches compliment you, you always have to be careful.”
England produced their best rugby of the Six Nations against Scotland, scoring seven tries with centre Jonathan Joseph crowning some impressively slick moves with a hat-trick as Scotland’s defence was shredded time after time.
But Jones said England had needed a “cleansing meeting” when they spent a few days training in Oxford to help them rediscover top form after they failed to hit the heights earlier in the tournament.
“We had a bit of a cleansing meeting when we were in camp in Oxford,” Jones said. “Not that we felt we weren’t doing what we needed to do, but we just felt we needed to reset our minds a little bit.
“It was about accepting that we’ve been successful,” the former Australia and Japan coach added. AFP
