Jones says Eng­land will try to bore Fiji to death

7 Days in Dubai - - SPORT -

Eng­land rugby coach Ed­die Jones seems to have his plans for Fiji chalked out and is not hes­i­tant to re­veal them. “We just have to bore them to death,” said Jones. “You go to Fiji and ev­ery­one is throw­ing 15-me­tre tor­pedo passes, flick­ing the ball through their legs, side-step­ping. “If they can’t do that they get bored. If they get bored, they don’t want to play and when they do that, you get points against them.” Jones is yet to taste de­feat with Eng­land and is look­ing to se­cure a 12th straight vic­tory when his side face Fiji at Twick­en­ham on Satur­day.
