Eddie Jones on the hateful rivalry between the English and the Welsh

Eddie Jones on England v Wales rivalry

“I got a letter from a fan the other day saying you must hate the Welsh!”

Posted by ITV Rugby on Friday, March 11, 2016

England coach Eddie Jones talks about the intense rivalry between the two old enemies ahead of Saturday’s big Six Nations clash at Twickenham. The winner of this match will be in pole position for the final weekend, and a championship title.

While Jones has coached all over the world and been part of Wallabies vs All Blacks clashes, he says that what he has experienced since taking over as England coach is unique.

Most fans will agree however that while losing is not an option, the word ‘hate’ is probably a bit harsh and should probably not be taken too seriously. What do you think?

England team: Mike Brown; Anthony Watson, Jonathan Joseph, Owen Farrell, Jack Nowell; George Ford, Ben Youngs; Joe Marler, Dylan Hartley (capt), Dan Cole; Maro Itoje, George Kruis; Chris Robshaw, James Haskell, Billy Vunipola. Replacements: Luke Cowan-Dickie, Mako Vunipola, Kieran Brookes, Joe Launchbury, Jack Clifford, Danny Care, Manu Tuilagi, Elliot Daly.

Replacements: Ken Owens, Paul James, Tomas Francis, Luke Charteris, Justin Tipuric, Rhys Webb, Rhys Priestland, Gareth Anscombe.
