Eddie Jones fears for World Cup inconsistency after Scott Barrett's 'ridiculous' red card

England coach Eddie Jones says he fears the World Cup could be impacted by “inconsistent” use of red cards following his side’s win over Wales.

Jones pointed to a pair of incidents he bizarrely wouldn’t specify from England’s 33-19 victory which he says flew in the face of All Blacks lock Scott Barrett’s send-off during New Zealand’s loss to the Wallabies.

The England boss described the decision to show Barrett a red card “ridiculous”, adding that “common sense” has to be applied.

Jones says World Rugby must act to ensure officials are on the same page when it comes to what warrants a send-off.
