England head coach Eddie Jones has called out Ireland ahead of their Six Nations opener in February, following today’s 37-18 win over Australia in Twickenham.
Jones’ side have found some good form this month, defeating South Africa, Australia and Japan, as well as running the All Blacks close, losing to the world champions by just a single point.
Ireland however, have been arguably the form team in the world over the last 12 months or so, winning a Six Nations Grand Slam, a series in Australia, as well as going one better than England and defeating the All Blacks at home.
Jones says he want to “play Ireland tomorrow”, heating things up months ahead of their opener in Dublin.
“We want to play them tomorrow!”
