Eddie Jones has hit back at Warren Gatland after the Wales coach questioned whether England have played their World Cup final a game early by overwhelming New Zealand.

Gatland spoke after his team had been beaten 19-16 by South Africa, who now face England on Saturday in a repeat of the 2007 final.

Meanwhile, Wales face the All Blacks in the bronze final 24 hours earlier – which  will be Gatland’s last match as boss.

“Well, guys, can you just send my best wishes to Warren to make sure he enjoys the third and fourth place play-off?” Jones quipped at a press conference.

Jones and Gatland are long-standing sparring partners as well as the rivalry between the countries in the rugby world and the outgoing Wales boss made a snidy remark about England’s crushing win against the reigning world champions.

Welsh head coach Gatland had a dig at England by saying “We have seen in previous World Cups that teams sometimes play their final in semi-finals and don’t always turn up for a final”
