VIDEO: Jones' foul-mouthed tirade against rivals
REACTION: Eddie Jones has apologised 'unreservedly' as footage has emerged of the England coach referring to the Irish as 'scummy' in a seminar.
The embattled coach also described Wales as a 'little s**t place'.
Jones has this evening apologised for the comments.
Earlier in the same speech Jones refers disparagingly to Wales.
"Wales. Who knows Wales? Are there any Welsh people here? So it's this little s**t place that has got three million people. Three million!"
Jones apologised in a statement: "I apologise unreservedly for any offence caused – no excuses and I shouldn’t have said what I did. I'’m very sorry."
The RFU have also said that they would apologise to both the Irish and Welsh Unions.
The apology is the latest controversy involving the England coach, who himself was the victim of verbal and physical abuse outside a train station in Manchester.
