A former Wales captain has accused England coach Eddie Jones of “beginning to bring rugby into disrepute” with some of his comments before and after Six Nations matches.
Emyr Lewis, a backrow forward who earned 41 tests caps between 1991 and 1996, said he wished Jones would ” shut his mouth up on more occasions”.
“I totally disagree with him,” Lewis told BBC Wales.
“Eddie Jones is a master of mind games and I wish he’d shut his mouth up on more occasions.
“It’s not [got] a place in rugby – you might have it in football and whatever other sports, but in rugby, it’s a gentleman’s sport.
“And I just think he’s beginning to bring the game into disrepute with some of his comments.”
