Jones: have a few pints then roar us to victory

Eddie Jones has issued a rallying cry to the England team and supporters ahead of tomorrow’s Rugby World Cup semi-final against New Zealand

The Daily Express says Jones is “sup for the cup” and has called on England fans to enjoy a few beers before roaring the team into the World Cup final. 

Jones has urged England to “dethrone” the two-time defending champions, The Guardian reports, while the Australian wants his side to knock the All Blacks “off their perch”, says The Daily Telegraph. The Times adds that Jones’s England are “ready to rumble” against the Kiwis. 

The Sun reports that 10,000 England fans are expected inside the Yokohama Stadium and millions will watch the match on TV. 

Jones said: “They need to drink a fair bit of beer beforehand and be ready to go. We also need everyone to go down to their local club, have a few pints or whatever you need to have to cheer loudly for us.”

Stay on, Eddie

The Daily Mail reports that the Rugby Football Union (RFU) plan to hold contract talks with Jones over a new deal that would see him lead England through to the 2023 Rugby World Cup in France.
