Eddie Jones' verbal shots are part of his mystique and could give England edge against Australia
Eddie Jones' verbal shots are part of his mystique and could give England edge against Australia Don't for one minute think Eddie Jones has spent the week firing from the lip because he likes the sound of his own voice. This guy doesn’t do anything for effect, for cheap headlines, for ego. Nor even to take gratuitous digs at either his homeland or the Wallabies team that sacked him.
