Eddie Jones: 'I've got a soft spot for New Zealand'

England have booked a place in the Rugby World Cup semi-finals for the first time in 12 years with a thrilling and highly competitive 40-16 win against Australia in Oita. “The good news for us is we can still improve,” said England coach Eddie Jones after masterminding victory against his native Australia. “We’re happy to play anyone but obviously I’ve got a soft spot for New Zealand,” he added, looking ahead to next weekend’s semi-finals before the All Blacks’ demolition of Ireland. Wallabies coach Michael Cheika said of the defeat by England: “I thought we actually played quite well, especially that first 50 or 60 … they defended well, and the better team won, you’ve got to suck that up sometimes.”
