England coach Eddie Jones was physically and verbally abused on the train as he travelled home from Scotland after his team’s Six Nations defeat.
The Australian travelled alone in standard class on the 09:15 GMT from Edinburgh to Manchester Oxford Road on Sunday after England’s 25-13 defeat.
Jones was verbally abused outside the station after posing for a picture.
A man then opened the door of Jones’ car to direct further abuse before the driver and another man intervened.
“I’ll make sure I won’t in future. It’s as simple as that,” said Jones.
