Eddie Jones Turns On English Media Desperate 'For Him To Be Sacked'

Eddie Jones Turns On English Media Desperate 'For Him To Be Sacked'

"You can get cited for something you did at a party when you were 15, anything could happen", he said.

Meanwhile England coach Eddie Jones was in sarcastic mood when asked during his post-match press conference about the possibility of being without Farrell for the November 10 clash against the All Blacks at Twickenham.

England flyhalf Owen Farrell is free to face the All Blacks after avoiding a citation for a controversial tackle in his side's 12-11 win over South Africa.

Elliot Daly landed England's other penalty from 50 metres, something he has consistently done for club side Wasps as Eddie Jones' men claimed back-to-back wins against the Springboks.

"I thought when the game opened up there were opportunities we didn't take which I'm disappointed in, but generally speaking we're pleased to have grabbed that win and to move onto New Zealand this week".

"When our boys played for the Lions we got them to do notes about what".

"Tom Curry is off to see the doctor so we'll know more about him today but we're sadly pessimistic about his chances". "They're the best team in the world and that's exciting for us but in terms of preparation, the preparation's about getting better and that's the same for every Test match we play".

He said: "We know they're going to have an ideal preparation for the game; they'll be up for the game". There's parts of the game that they enjoy and you want to take them away from them. "If I stay long enough you're going to get me sacked, so one day you're going to be happy".

England are looking for their first victory against the All Blacks since December 2012.

Jones said, "We're not the Springboks".

The Autumn Internationals citing commissioner had until 5pm local Sunday to cite Farrell and World Rugby confirmed on Sunday evening that no citations had been issued from the weekend's Tests.

England have been consulting a dossier of observations from players involved in last year's British and Irish Lions tour in their quest to defeat New Zealand.
