England head coach Eddie Jones has "apologised unreservedly" for offensive comments he made about Wales and Ireland.

At a sponsors' talk in July 2017, the Australian described Wales as a "@#$%& little place" and spoke about how disappointed he was by a recent defeat by the "scummy Irish".

Is the timing of these revelations coincidental, or just part of his childish "mind game", he seems to love to play?

I doubt he wanted the exposure now. What’s odd is that the video has been on YouTube since last July.

‘Scummy’ isn’t poking fun.

Slight over-reaction.

From th video I think he may have a little tipple, or he could just be kinda slurred all the time. As an Irish person, not bothered by it all, he’s just general not a bit of menace, no big deal. The fact that it’s come out now, could be him stirring the pot, wouldn’t put it past him

Surely he’s not that contrived, or is he?!

I can't imagine Joe Schmit ever saying things like that in public, he comes across as a good pro and man manager. I'm a bit disappointed with EJ even if it was contrived or last year.
He's not the Messiah hes a very naughty boy!

And no one is rude about the English. Or the Australians for that matter. Non story!

What's offensive is how inane the 'jokes' are. Not offensive. Just stupid

Time for my periodic post of this gem, even if I disagree with the bit about the Irish (Sm14)

Flanders & Swann - A Song of Patriotic Prejudice
The English, the English, the English are best
I wouldn’t give tuppence for all of the rest.

The rottenest bits of these islands of ours
We’ve left in the hands of three unfriendly powers
Examine the Irishman, Welshman or Scot
You’ll find he’s a stinker, as likely as not.

The Scotsman is mean, as we’re all well aware
And bony and blotchy and covered with hair
He eats salty porridge, he works all the day
And he hasn’t got bishops to show him the way!

The English, the English, the English are best
I wouldn’t give tuppence for all of the rest.
The Irishman now our contempt is beneath
He sleeps in his boots and he lies through his teeth

He blows up policemen, or so I have heard
And blames it on Cromwell and William the Third!
The English are noble, the English are nice,
And worth any other at double the price

The Welshman’s dishonest and cheats when he can
And little and dark, more like monkey than man
He works underground with a lamp in his hat
And he sings far too loud, far too often, and flat!

And crossing the Channel, one cannot say much
Of French and the Spanish, the Danish or Dutch
The Germans are German, the Russians are red,
And the Greeks and Italians eat garlic in bed!

The English are moral, the English are good
And clever and modest and misunderstood.

And all the world over, each nation’s the same
They’ve simply no notion of playing the game
They argue with umpires, they cheer when they’ve won
And they practice beforehand which ruins the fun!

The English, the English, the English are best
So up with the English and down with the rest.
It’s not that they’re wicked or natuarally bad
It’s knowing they’re foreign that makes them so mad!


"Our prayer is 'God save Ireland' and pour blessings on her name!"
