Despite being involved in an altercation with some South African supporters after the first Test, England coach Eddie Jones played down the confrontation after the game, the BBC report.

Jones, 58, was making his way down the tunnel after his England side fell to a 42-39 defeat in a thrilling first Test, before finding himself in an altercation with some supporters in Johannesburg.

When asked about the incident, Jones admitted he replied to the group of fans and claimed that the incident would be ‘on some mobile phone in the world’.

They have always got plenty to say. I was just asking them where I could get a good bottle of Pinotage. They told me to go find it myself. That’s what happened, that’s what I asked him.

The Australian also admitted that his sides discipline was one of the main reasons for their defeat, despite his side racing into a 24-3 lead inside the first quarter thanks to tries from Mike Brown, Elliot Daly and captain Owen Farrell.

Jones admitted his side would win the second Test in Bloemfontein next Saturday, only if they can cut out the individual errors and are more disciplined than their first showing.
