Rugby World Cup 2019: Eddie Jones' dig at Wales coach Warren Gatland

Eddie Jones has had a dig at his Welsh counterpart Warren Gatland ahead of the Rugby World Cup final against the Springboks on Saturday night.

Wales coach Gatland suggested England may have already played their final with their stunning win over the All Blacks, but Jones had the last laugh.

"Guys, can you just send my best wishes to Warren, and make sure he enjoys the third and fourth playoff," Jones said to the laughter of reporters.

The quick-witted coach has guided England to the top slot in the latest world rankings, with the Springboks in second and the All Blacks in third.

Meanwhile, the All Blacks are determined to stick together following their heartbreaking defeat.

The loss to England on Saturday night rocked the team, but flanker Sam Cane and the squad are ready to move forward.

"[We] had a good team meeting last night - we're all in it together," Cane said. "Today, it's about looking forward and learning, and trying to be better."

Flanker Ardie Savea picked up a knee injury and is the only player not available for selection for the bronze final against Wales.
