“We owe them one.”
England head coach Eddie Jones says he’s not worried about next year’s Six Nations, he’s worried about defeating defending Grand Slam champions Ireland.
Jones has lost his last two games to Ireland as England boss, with Joe Schmidt’s side ending his unbeaten run in the Six Nations last year, before completing an historic Grand Slam agains the Red Rose in Twickenham this year.
The Australia says Ireland are the top team in Europe right now, a title England want to take from them.
“We owe them one. I’m not worried about winning the Six Nations, I’m worried about Ireland. We play them first up so it’s the most important game we’ve got coming up,” Jones said.
“They’re the top team in Europe now mate. We want to be the top team in Europe. It’s pretty simple.”
England and Ireland clash on the opening day of the Six Nations in February in what promises to be an absolute cracker.
