Jones suffers abuse

Friday, March 02, 2018

LONDON - England coach Eddie Jones was physically and verbally abused on the train as he travelled home from Scotland after his team's Six Nations defeat, the BBC reported yesterday.

The Australian, who was in a standard class carriage from Edinburgh to Manchester the morning after England's 25-13 loss to the Scots at Murrayfield on Sunday, said he would not use public transport again.

"I'll make sure I won't in future. It's as simple as that," Jones told the BBC.

"I'm a human being. I don't consider myself any different from anyone else, so for me to travel on public transport I thought was okay," Jones said.

"I can't because it was shown what happens when I do. That's the world we live in."
