Jones 'the Clown' has 
the last laugh

England coach Eddie Jones had the last laugh after a 37-21 win over his native Australia at Twickenham yesterday morning (Singapore time).

Earlier, The Australian newspaper had depicted former Wallaby boss Jones as a clown.

But, after England made it 13 wins out of 13 under Jones for a perfect 2016, the coach said: "Firstly I'd just like to apologise, I've forgotten my red nose, but I'll get it later and put it on."

England's victory was their fourth over the Wallabies this year.

But Jones, speaking after England had equalled their record run of 14 straight wins set in 2003, said England still had work to do if they were to replace world champions New Zealand as the No. 1-ranked Test side.

"We can't get too carried away. We've still got a lot of work to do to become the best team in the world," he said. - AFP
