England, who face Ireland in Dublin on Saturday in their final Six Nations game from 1:30 p.m. live on ESPN Extra and ESPN Play, It received strong criticism following its first-round loss to Scotland and the 40-24 setback against Wales that ended the title defense. But Jones’ team has since rallied, defeating France 23-20 last weekend in an exhibition cited as the best since the 2019 World Cup.
Everything was fine in the press conference until coach Eddie Jones was asked about Elliot Daly’s membership and his confidence in the center of the court, the natural position of the Saracens player in which Jones preferred not to use it. The coach took a breath and was categorical: “I have never seen confidence cross the door, so I do not know what confidence is,” said Jones, who began to heat up the duel with reporters.
“I don’t think there is such a thing as trust, you either think well or think badly, and at the wrong moment you start to hear the poison that is written in the media, that rat poison gets into the heads of the players. We try not to get them into their heads. We try to spray all that rat poison they’re trying to put in and get out of their heads, so we’re always working hard to keep it out of their heads. That keeps me busy, friend “, were the harsh statements of the head coach of La Rosa in the previous to the closing of the Six Nations 2021.
