Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones unimpressed with Eddie Jones comments

Video footage has emerged of England coach Eddie Jones vowing to get revenge on the "scummy Irish" in next Saturday's Six Nations clash at Twickenham.

In an statement issued by the Rugby Football Union (RFU), the governing body of rugby union in England, Jones said there were no excuses for his comments.

Jones apologised for his comments and admitted his choice of words was inexcusable, saying he was "very sorry".

Wales coach Warren Gatland refused to criticise Eddie Jones after footage from July a year ago surfaced in which the England coach was caught making offensive comments about Wales and Ireland.

Victory at Twickenham on Saturday for Ireland would secure the Grand Slam for the team who were crowned champions after England's defeat in Paris.

Of more pressing concern to Jones is that a loss today could see England, winners of the past two Six Nations titles, finish as low as fifth.

England team to play Ireland. "We have had a couple of tough games on the road and to get back and play in front of our 24th man will be exciting for the players and they will be looking forward to putting in a good performance". "We knew during that run that we were not good enough to reach where we wanted to get to", he said.
