Eddie Jones has called Bath owner Bruce Craig the 'Donald Trump of rugby'

Eddie Jones has labelled Bruce Craig the "Donald Trump of rugby" as England's head coach continued his war of words with the Bath owner.

Craig ignited the feud last week when criticising Jones' training methods after 15 players, including five from the Recreation Ground, had sustained injuries during international camps.

The exchange of verbal hostilities continued upon England's arrival in Durban on Sunday for their three-Test series against South Africa.

"Bruce Craig sounds like the Donald Trump of rugby. He has the same hairstyle," Jones said.

"Everything we do is about training to get better, it's not about satisfying some bloke who has got plenty of money in Bath and thinks he knows everything about rugby. I find it all a bit tedious."

Bath prop Beno Obano has been ruled out for a year with knee and hamstring injuries sustained while preparing for England's non-cap international against the Barbarians, prompting Craig to describe the attrition rate in training as "totally unacceptable".

"We've got an owner who thinks he knows everything about rugby. Really, I wish I knew that much," Jones said.

"If I knew that much I'd probably have as much money as him. Unfortunately I don't so I'll just stick to rugby.

"Bruce is absolutely obsessed by intensity, Bruce is the intensity king of the world. We train appropriately for Test match rugby."
