The face shown is full on, the skin wrinkled, the hair greying at the temples, dark sockets for eyes. A mugshot? In fact the very opposite, not the brutality of fact but the poignancy of fact.

JOE SCHMIDT has admitted that he does not know how to take Eddie Jones’ games. And he joked he feared his England counterpart may spy on his side with the Six Nations rivals both training in Portugal this week. Head coaches from left, Conor O’Shea, Gregor Townsend, Joe Schmidt, Warren Gatland, Eddie Jones, and Jacques Brunel all in attendance during the 2019 Guinness Six Nations launch Jones as never been afraid to ruffle a few feathers and was at it last week when he suggested Johnny Sexton – who will be fit for the February 2 opener – had ‘a bat phone to referees’. At the Six Nations launch in London today, Schmidt said: “Eddie went past me just before and he said, ‘Right, let’s get ready for a few grenades.’ “He’s always incredibly hard to read, Eddie. “It keeps it fresh, it does keep it entertaining and it does make me think, ‘Is he serious about that? Is Jack Nowell going to play seven? Is Tom Curry going to play there or is Mark Wilson going to play there?’. Jones’ England will face Ireland on February 2 “You do want to keep the opposition guessing, certainly once the ball gets kicked off you want to keep them guessing. “Eddie does a good job of it because they’re heading down to the Algarve. It’s 15 minutes from where we are and he said he might whip across and have a look. “Because that’s topical at the moment, he just throws it in the conversation. I enjoy the banter with Eddie because he’s that irrepressible character. I respect him as a strategist, he’s a smart coach.” On the suggestion, Sexton was able to influence referees, Schmidt said: “I want to get hold of it (the bat phone) if I can. I’d like a direct dial myself. “I don’t know that Commissioner Gordon is in the building when matches are being played. Ireland beat England at Twickenham last year to secure the Grand Slam “I just think with Johnny, I’m not sure Owen Farrell is that different, they’re demanding of themselves, their co-players and officials. “Look at Dan Biggar, I don’t think he’s any different either. They’re incredibly competitive and because they’re incredibly competitive, they ask questions. “Johnny doesn’t have as much to say for us because he’s not skipper. Rory Best would be the guy who is more face-to-face conversations than bat phones but I think he manages that really well as the captain.” [article-rail-section title=”MOST READ SPORT” posts_category=”0″ posts_number=”12″ query_type=”popular” /] Sexton took part in a light training session on Tuesday and is scheduled to take a full part on Thursday. Schmidt revealed that Iain Henderson’s thumb injury would see him miss the first three and possibly four Six Nations games but fellow second row Tadhg Beirne (knee) may be back for the middle fixture against Italy. Dan Leavy (calf) could return for the second game away to Scotland.

I was so excited to make my new playlists for this year, but the playlist itself is super disappointing for some reason. I’ve not really listened to it a lot, I’ve given more attention to other playlists that I have (as I’ve been doing for a few months now for some reason). I still have […]
