Four Scotland fans hauled to court after England rugby coach Eddie Jones was called a 'balding c**t' in train spat

The four Scots allegedly called Jones a “balding c**t” as he sat in a standard-class carriage from Edinburgh to Manchester in February.

British Transport Police today said they had charged three men aged 22, 23, and 25, from Edinburgh, and a 25-year-old man from South Queensferry.

They were summed to appear before Manchester and Salford Magistrates’ Court, charged with using threatening or abusive words.

They are now expected to appear in court on May 16.

Speaking after the alleged confrontation, Red Rose boss Jones happily posed for selfies with fans on the train but vowed he would never use public transport again.

The Aussie, 58, said: “It wasn’t comfortable but that’s the world we live in.

"I never knock back a request for a selfie — unless I’m racing to somewhere. I try and do the right thing by the fans.

“But if that happens you’ve got to have a look at your own safety.”


Scottish Rugby released a statement after the confrontation, saying: "Scottish Rugby is appalled by the verbal abuse suffered by Eddie Jones.

"The disgusting behaviour of those involved does not represent the values of our sport or its fans.

"The dignity Eddie and the England team showed on Saturday is in stark contrast to this ugly incident.”
