Jones: England can still make history with hat-trick

20 March 2017

England were beaten 13-9 by Ireland in their final Six Nations game, denying them the 19th successive Test victory that would have eclipsed the record set by New Zealand previous year.

England are not due to meet the All Blacks until 2018 but head coach Eddie Jones supports an earlier clash. "Did you think we would never get defeated?"

"The world record-equalling run is over and that is probably no bad thing because there is much work to do, as most people appreciated".

The players were given until 18:00 GMT on Tuesday to respond to the charge. My objective was not to do that. "The game is hard".

"It's incredible how emotionally charged Ireland were and we've got to learn that if we ever find ourselves in that situation again we have to negate that", he add.

The game promises to be a good one so enjoy the match! It's not great to lose, but it's a great learning experience.

"You guys know the history of rugby", he told reporters.

"After two Six Nations and a three-test series in Australia, Eddie is at the end of phase One with this England team and 18 wins out of 19 is a record nobody would have envisaged when he took over amidst the rubble of the 2015 World Cup campaign".

Windows 7 is to receive security updates until 14 January 2020, while Windows 8.1's support is to end on 10 January 2023. There are only a few more weeks until Microsoft's Windows Vista operating system is officially put out to pasture.

"That's how hard it is for them to win".

"If you look at how the best team in the world reacts to a loss, they always come back bigger and better and that's the focus for us".

England are not now slated to face back-to-back world champions New Zealand until 2018, but the RFU are battling to secure a prestige November 2017 fixture with the All Blacks at Twickenham. "We don't have any excuses", Jones said.

It will offer little time for the build-up, but Jones would still welcome the prospect of a mouth-watering showdown between the sport's two best teams.

While former Lions coach Leigh Matthews has echoed the same sentiments, pointing out that other stadiums haven't had any issues. Gabba manager Blair Conaghan said they had been "extremely motivated" to host the AFLW final.
