Rugby World Cup 2019: World Rugby chief issues stinging response to Eddie Jones criticism

This is another unbelievable module!

Eddie Jones’s first day back in Japan went from bad to worse after World Rugby’s chief executive Brett Gosper issued a stinging response to the England boss’s recent referee criticism, reminding him that he is no different to players and should keep to “fact rather than hearsay”.

England suffered a five-hour delay upon arrival at Tokyo Narita International, resulting in the team and staff taking refuge until their transfer could reach the airport after the ferocious Typhoon Faxai hit mainland Japan on Monday morning.

But once the team eventually departed for their 66km journey to Shiodome in central Tokyo, Jones found himself the subject of a firm rebuke from the World Rugby boss.

The England head coach has twice hit out at the governing body during the recent World Cup warm-ups, first launching into an unprovoked tirade over the punishment of high tackles before criticising referees during their warm-up games against Wales.

Jones’s criticism of the high-tackle laws – which followed New Zealand lock Scott Barrett’s red card during his side’s defeat by Australia last month – was the most eye-raising, given that he was a consultant to World Rugby’s Law Review Group that brought in the harsher treatment of players guilty of high tackles.
