Mako Vunipola Rugby World Cup 2019: Eddie Jones refuses to wade into high tackle debate in wake of England vs USA

Mako Vunipola These constituents are nice!

Eddie Jones refused to discuss either the tackle on Owen Farrell that saw John Quill red carded for the United States or the one by Piers Francis that could result in England receiving their first ban of the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

Quill was sent off late in England’s 45-7 victory for a horrendous tackle on replacement Farrell, hitting him with his shoulder to the head after the whistle had been blown by referee Nic Berry. After a TMO review, Berry showed Ireland-born flanker Quill a straight red card, and he is set to miss the rest of the USA’s World Cup as a result.

Francis will now face disciplinary action after being cited on Friday, with Australia’s Reece Hodge and Samoa’s Rey Lee-Lo both receiving three-week bans for similar tackles, but Jones went on the offensive in his refusal to discuss anything to do with the incidents in question, or World Rugby’s mid-week condemnation of refereeing performances at the World Cup.

“I am not talking about those tackles guys. I am going to leave that to the judiciary. That is the process. If you don’t understand that I am sorry. I can’t say any more. You create your own headlines. I am a rugby coach.
