England head coach Eddie Jones on Thursday paid tribute to Japan’s “outstanding” Rugby World Cup win over Ireland, before turning his attention back to his team’s crunch match against Argentina this weekend.

Former Japan head coach Jones led the Brave Blossoms to a famous 34-32 win over South Africa at the 2015 World Cup in England, but this year’s side arguably eclipsed that achievement last Saturday when it beat Ireland — at the time ranked No. 2 in the world — 19-12 in Shizuoka.
