England head coach Eddie Jones thinks Sir Clive Woodward comparing Joe Cokanasiga to New Zealand great Jonah Lomu was “ridiculous”.
The Aussie had only selected Cokanasiga for his fourth Test appearance after Jack Nowell was ruled out with a shoulder injury.
Woodward, commentating on television, had clearly seen enough to compare him with the late Lomu.
“That’s ridiculous,” said Jones in response to Woodward’s comments.
“That tells you why when you have the television on you should have the commentary down,
“The guy [Cokanasiga] has just started. Lomu almost won a World Cup for New Zealand, changed the way the game’s played.
“So let’s get serious about it.”
