EXCLUSIVE: Ex-England head coach Eddie Jones calls Danny Cipriani's claims that he asked about sex...
Eddie Jones has dismissed claims made against him by Danny Cipriani that he badgered him with inappropriate questions about his former girlfriend, TV presenter Kirsty Gallacher as absurd and a fabrication.
The former England head coach, now back in charge of his native Australia, has responded to allegations made in Ciprianis autobiography, Who Am I? In it, the ex-England fly-half gave an account of a conversation over dinner in 2016, saying: Eddie comes over and sits next to me.
'The first words out of his mouth are, Mate, doesnt Kirsty Gallacher live around here? Havent you shagged her? Whats she like?.
Ive just split up with Kirsty, after a short relationship, and its not something I want to talk to my head coach about, or anyone else for that matter.
'Eddie keeps pecking, like a horny teenager, and in the end I tell him straight, Eddie, I dont want to talk about this, its making me uncomfortable.
Jones is busy preparing his Wallabies squad for a World Cup opener against Georgia on Saturday, but when contacted by Mail Sport, he refuted Ciprianis remarks, saying: We didnt have a close relationship, so Im hardly going to engage in a conversation like that with him.
