Jones plays the waiting game

Reds coach Eddie Jones will have to wait until later in the week to find out if he is to be punished for comments he made about the referee following the his side’s loss to the Brumbies last weekend.

SANZAR (South Africa, New Zealand and Australian Rugby) – the body that oversees the Super 14 rugby competition – and counsel for Jones, agreed to postpone the hearing which had been set down in Brisbane for Tuesday.

Jones was expected to face a heavy fine or suspension for his criticism of referee Matt Goddard whose handling of the scrums he described as “ludicrous”, “disgraceful” and “lacking in common sense”.

Jones is the first coach in the history of the Super rugby cited for such an outburst after SANZAR chiefs studied his comments made on radio and at his post-match press conference.
