Eddie Jones was in hot water on Wednesday evening after a video emerged of the England head coach calling the Irish ‘scummy’ and Wales a ‘s*** little place’.
The comments were made at a Fuso talk – the Japanese parent company of key England sponsors Mitsubishi.
It took place in July last year, when England had only suffered one defeat under the Australian’s reign.

And when talking about England’s Test record Jones, 58, said: ‘We have played 23 Tests and only lost once to the scummy Irish.
‘I am still dirty about that game. We’ll get that back, we’ll get that back don’t worry. We’ve got them next year at home, we’ll get them back.
‘We are playing them in the Six Nations so we’ll get them back.’
The slur is likely to raise the temperature ahead of England’s NatWest 6 Nations Test against Ireland at Twickenham this Saturday. While Jones’ side have lost twice in the championship already, Ireland are unbeaten and on for the Grand Slam.
Later on in the video Jones causes further offence. While talking about the challenges he faced in Japan, Jones, their former national team coach, tells a story of the Under 20s team losing 125-0 to their Welsh counterparts.

‘Is there anyone from Wales here?’ he asks the audience.
‘So it is this little s*** place that has got three million people. Three million! Japan has got how many? 125 million people.
‘So Japan is the size of this table, and that is Wales (pointing at a glass of water).’
