Scottish Rugby condemns fan abuse of England coach

March 1, 2018

EDINBURGH, Scotland (AP) — Scotland’s rugby federation says it is “appalled” by video footage showing England coach Eddie Jones being verbally abused and intimidated following a Six Nations match between the two countries over the weekend.

Jones has said he will no longer travel by public transport after being targeted with verbal and physical abuse during two train journeys on Sunday, the day after England’s 25-13 loss to Scotland.

A video circulating on social media shows Jones posing for pictures with a group of men, purportedly from Scotland, before they turn on the England coach by swearing at him and opening the door of his courtesy car while he’s in it.

Scottish Rugby says “the disgusting behavior of those involved does not represent the values of our sport or its fans.”
