Eddie Jones denies talking to Japan about coaching role before World Cup


Eddie Jones apologises to Australian fans for failure as Wallabies head coach

Eddie Jones has apologised to Australian rugby fans for his failure as Wallabies head coach, during his first press conference since taking the Japan job (14 December).

“(I) apologise to Australian fans. I gave everything I could for that short period of time and it wasn’t good enough.

Jones laid some blame at the foot of Rugby Australia too, saying they weren’t able to support the plan we envisioned for Australian rugby.

“I feel terrible about the results of Australia because I wanted to go back and change Australia. I feel terrible mate, but I don’t feel any guilt at all about this process,” the new Japan boss added.
