Danny Cipriani accuses Eddie Jones of belittling employees in explosive comments

Another day, another Danny Cipriani vs Eddie Jones story…well, here we go again. The former England fly-half has accused the former England coach of “belittling employees, running through staff, and having a limited understanding of the game”.

This is in direct response to the news that broke this morning, in which Eddie Jones strongly criticised his former employers, the RFU, during a fiery radio interview. In the interview, he argued that the recent poor performance of the England team was due to the union’s failure to properly develop and promote talented young players.

Cipriani has found himself enraged by these comments and has taken to Twitter to express his own very strong thoughts on the matter:

“What an unbelievable cop out” he said. “Once again… As the head coach of England you set the standard to follow, not by winning, by being a leader people look up to or admire, being accountable and inspiring a nation through your vision. Not by belittling employees, running through staff, having a limited understanding of the game and getting hired because the RFU don’t know what they are looking for hence why they employed Eddie. RFU have a huge role to play but Eddie passing the buck is not news…”

He then added: “Rugby needs to make a change in this country. Eddie ran it further into the ground from a shocking 2015 W/C exit. If getting to the World Cup final in 2019 or even winning it in 2003 was enough to expand the game then that’s what would have happened. RFU have a huge role to play, it’s not a serious business. Selling Twickenham out is not difficult. Only when they don’t will they think to look in the mirror…”

Replying to a comment suggesting that Jones should have made these comments whilst still in charge of the national side, Cipriani claimed: “Why do you think he didn’t? Because he was picking up a pay cheque… not saying there is no truth in it. He got employed by those people who don’t know how to identify talent because they fell for his chat…”
