Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones says he will “have a chat with Uncle Eddie” following tomorrow's Six Nations showdown against England.

England head coach Eddie Jones ignited the build-up by questioning the conduct of Wales’ skipper towards referee Pascal Gauzere in the win against Scotland.

Eddie Jones objected to the way in which Alun Wyn Jones stood in front of Finn Russell to prevent the Scotland fly-half from converting Peter Horne’s late try while the television match official reviewed the score.

England Rugby raised an enquiry with World Rugby but they were happy and that Gauzere and the television match official were already dealing with matters.

Alun Wyn Jones said: “I’ve not seen an exact transcription of Eddie Jones’ comments, so I can’t comment too much on the specifics.

“But it was more important that World Rugby, when they were asked for clarification, came back and essentially said that they saw nothing untoward with what happened.

“More importantly, Pascal at the time, had no issue, or no issue after the game.

“I’m very grateful that Eddie has flagged that up with World Rugby. I’ll keep doing what I’m doing and keep within the spirit of the game.

“It is the sort of thing that you can choose your friends, but you can’t choose your family, so I think I will have to have a chat with Uncle Eddie after the game.

“As players, we are inside the tent and we have got to deal with that happens between the white lines.”

Eddie Jones also questioned whether Wales fly-half Rhys Patchell had “the bottle”.

Asked if his team-talk had been done, Alun Wyn Jones said: “No. Because there are another 13 guys on the park, so Rhys and myself aren’t arrogant enough to assume anything said about the two individuals will motivate the 15.”
