Coach Eddie Jones makes no excuses for big defeat but Scotland captain Greig Laidlaw saw an exhausted Brave Blossoms
GLOUCESTER – Japan coach Eddie Jones refused to blame a short turnaround for his team’s one-sided defeat to Scotland. But in reality, three days were just not enough for the Brave Blossoms to recover from their monumental win over South Africa at the weekend.
“I said we wouldn’t use that excuse and we are not,” Jones said following a 45-10 loss on Wednesday, when asked about playing Scotland on such short rest. “Scotland were too good for us in the second half.”
