Jones apol­o­gises

Nelson Mail - - SPORT -

Eng­land head rugby coach Ed­die Jones has apol­o­gised for swear­ing on tele­vi­sion af­ter Sun­day’s stut­ter­ing win over Ar­gentina – hav­ing re­ceived a telling-off from his 93-year-old mother. Aus­tralian Jones was frus­trated by his team’s patchy per­for­mance in their 21-8 vic­tory at Twick­en­ham and his frus­tra­tion boiled over dur­ing a post-match in­ter­view. ‘‘I have apol­o­gised for the lan­guage I used,’’ Jones told the BBC. ‘‘I got a phone call this morn­ing from my mother – who is 93 – rap­ping me over the knuck­les. I amin trou­ble with my mother and that’s a big enough pun­ish­ment for me. She still tells me not to swear. I amin the dog­house and cer­tainly won’t do it again.’’
