"Ought to he get his head down, be a lot much less excessive-profile and minimize out a few of the distracting nonsense round the squad? Completely.

"There have been a number of critical gaffes, culminating in the launch of a video with some unwell-judged and admittedly pathetic feedback about the Welsh and Irish, simply when he and the workforce didn’t want it."

Jones finds himself in fairly a multitude on the area, too. If Six Nations champions Eire beat the Purple Rose at Twickenham on Saturday it should see England lose three video games in a row for the first time since they suffered 5 defeats on the bounce in 2014.

And, virtually amazingly, Jones' group might finish the weekend fifth in the Six Nations desk ought to outcomes go towards them.

For that to occur, Scotland would wish to beat Italy earlier than Wales both beat France by lower than seven factors or lose to Les Bleus, all whereas England lose to Eire with no bonus level.

This state of affairs would result in their worst end since 1987.

Woodward, in the meantime, warmed to his theme by telling Jones that though having a pleasant go at opponents is a part of rugby tradition, this time he acquired it horribly improper.

He wrote: "It might be fascinating to see how he would have dealt with this had it been a participant making these loopy feedback. They have been by no means going to sound good. Eddie is aware of this.

"Make no mistake, this can be a main distraction forward of a must-win recreation and I can solely think about what the staff room is like with these headlines swirling about. Examine it with the Irish group room — it’s chalk and cheese.

"The worrying factor is that we have now seen a sample rising over the final month or so with the coach getting issues flawed off the area and behind the scenes.

"It might undermine the authority he has with the workforce. Getting distracted is suicidal for any worldwide rugby workforce, not to mention the coach aiming to be the greatest."

In a tempestuous season, Jones made private feedback about Rhys Patchell and Alun Wyn Jones earlier than the Wales match, was brief-tempered with the media when defending Mike Brown after the recreation earlier than discovering himself on the finish of vile abuse after defeat in Scotland.

England badly want Jones to be on his greatest behaviour this weekend and mastermind a victory over Eire to stop the guests from clinching the Grand Slam.
