Jones' England side face defending Six Nations champions Ireland in their opening game of this year's campaign on February 2 and World Rugby Player of the Year Sexton is expected to be fit, despite now being sidelined with a knee injury.

Ahead of England's clash with Ireland in the 2016 Six Nations, Jones also said that Sexton's mother and father might be anxious about this long-term health after the injuries he picked up in action against France. "When he talks, the referee listens", said Jones.

"That is because of his status in the game - you earn that, like [former New Zealand captain] Richie McCaw did".

England coach Jones said in November that his own number 10 Owen Farrell did not get the same protection as Sexton.

Cardi clapped back by saying "I'm paying about 4 million in taxes this year so most likely I am paying for your insurance". Then it turned into an ideological debate of sorts over U.S. tax policy.

"Sexton is an interesting one, they've talked about him having whiplash injury, which is not a great thing to talk about", the Australian said in 2016.

England headcoach Eddie Jones revealed he used to deploy people to watch opponents train after Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa admitted he has sent staff members to look at all of their Championship rivals in a "Spygate" saga.

Jones led his native Australia between 2001 and 2005, a stint that included narrowly losing the 2003 Rugby World Cup final to England. He was dressed up like a swagman, wearing one of those hats with corks. "We just don't see the value of it because we can glean most of the stuff from the games".
