Ireland unaffected by Jones remarks - Schmidt

World Rugby replaces England Ireland official to avoid conflict of interests

Ireland coach Joe Schmidt had earlier suggested World Rugby needed to tighten its regulations, saying: "I'm sure in retrospect people are probably thinking it's not the best thing to do".

A spokesperson for English rugby union's governing body said the remarks were "inappropriate" and the RFU would apologise to its counterparts in Ireland and Wales.

Later in the event he referred to Ireland's 13-9 win in Dublin previous year which stopped England winning the Grand Slam.

It was uploaded by Fuso to YouTube in July a year ago but has only come to light before Saturday's final round of the 2018 Six Nations when England face Ireland at Twickenham.

Saracens scrum-half Richard Wigglesworth starts in place of Care and will resume his club partnership with Owen Farrell, normally a centre for England but now at fly-half instead of childhood friend Ford.

Jones' jibes are also likely to lead to accusations of hypocrisy.

James Haskell returns on the open-side flank, with Chris Robshaw switching to blind-side in place of the injured Courtney Lawes and Sam Simmonds coming back in at number eight to replace the injured Nathan Hughes.

There are significant changes to the pack, too, with Dan Cole dropped for Kyle Sinckler at prop and George Kruis picked ahead of Joe Launchbury in the second row.

"We've only lost one Test to the scummy Irish", Jones said in the video. They've got a very distinct style of play and we feel those two are going to get us on the front foot.

"He brings energy, he brings enthusiasm, he's a tough guy and he's a good captain. We want to finish the tournament on a good result".

"Every setback, every disappointment, everything's just learning for us and it's part of our journey".

Ireland head coach Schmidt claimed Jones' words will have no bearing on the showdown at Twickenham, where Ireland will attempt to put the icing on the cake after being crowned champions last weekend.

"We have seen in every game the physical contest has been quite enormous so we have to meet that physical challenge and then play smart tactically, ". "We have them next year at home".
