England coach Jones sorry for Argentina outburst

England coach Eddie Jones has selected Henry Slade to start at No 12 against Argentina

Television cameras caught the England rugby coach slamming down his notebook and blurting out swear words during his team's error-strewn 21-8 win over Argentina on Saturday.

The England coach was captured on camera venting his anger at an under-par performance from his side with an expletive-laden outburst in the stands at Twickenham.

"We only focus on ourselves but hopefully we get the crowd going", he added. And that sometimes happens at rugby games. "The team Australia are at the moment and the form they are in, they will take you apart if you don't have that cohesiveness".

Various explanations have been put forward for the performance - rustiness, the absence of key players like Owen Farrell and Maro Itoje, slippery conditions, the quality of Argentina - but England will likely have to improve for its next match.

Australia were the last side to win at Twickenham in the World Cup two years ago, and they warmed up for Saturday's clash against England with their 13th successive Test victory over Wales in Cardiff.

"They want us to win, they want us play as well as we can".

New Super Smash Bros Trademark Might Be Hinting At New SSB Game?
However, with Nintendo taking a lot of time in announcing Super Smash Bros . for the Nintendo Switch, it could mean two things. The rumors about Super Smash Bros . for Switch emerged from January 2016, when the console still had the Nintendo NX codename.

"I thought our effort and application were first class. Argentina are a hard team, but I obviously didn't coach the team well enough", Jones said.

"Ultimately the responsibility always comes back to me so If the players weren't able to do it, I didn't coach them well enough".

Jones' players saw nothing wrong in their coach's antics, with scrum-half Danny Care admitting it reminded him of Martin Johnson's explosion when he was sin-binned against Ireland in 2009.

"Their selection has been good, their defence is very good, their set piece is strong". May's return would allow Anthony Watson to move to full-back to deputise for Mike Brown, who was forced off early in Saturday's encounter after landing on his head after an aerial tackle by opposite man Joaquin Tuculet, which earned the Argentine a yellow card. I'd think that at this stage he's still in contention.

England's Lydia Thompson was among the nominees for the women's award.

Jones is managing the pair's game time at the end of a busy year for club (Saracens), country and the British and Irish Lions.
