Ireland travel to Twickenham Saturday to face Jones’ English team. Here’s what he had to say about the idea of targeting Sexton:

“Sexton is an interesting one, they’ve talked about him having whiplash injury which is not a great thing to talk about,” said Jones.

“I’m sure his mother and father would be worried about that. Hopefully, the lad’s all right on Saturday to play.

“We target players all the time. That’s part of rugby is it not? Is there some sort of special law there?

“There are 15 players out there. Are we supposed to not run at one player? Hang on, hang on, he’s got a red dot on his head, we don’t run at him.

“Rugby’s a game of XV players on the field. When we’re attacking, we’re attacking weak defenders. Why would we run at the strongest defender?

“We are not going to run at their strongest defenders, we’ll always run at their weakest.

“I’m not saying Sexton is a weak defender. Maybe France did. We’re going to be targeting players in the Ireland side.

“We want to win and you win a game of rugby by attacking their weak points and to say that’s unfair is just ridiculous.”
