England coach says he’ll protect Joe Cokanasiga from media hyperbole later departing the wing out of their group to face Scotland.

Cokanasiga, 2-1, was known as man of the game within the 57-14 win over Italy, with his power and pace drawing comparisons to All Black great Jonah Lomu.

Jones said the comparison was”garbage dialog” earlier in the week.

“The media has an impact on the player and we need to be alert to the,” Jones told BBC Sport.

“I think it is crucial, especially in England, because I have seen many good young players that start with this flourish and then only play three or four Tests.

Jack Nowell replenishes Cokanasiga to the wing, even while you will find also recalls for prop Ben Moon, center Henry Slade and flanker .

Ben Youngs will become England’s most capped scrumhalf in his 85th game.

Jones’ side will get the championship if they beat Scotland and also Grand Slam-chasing Wales neglect to win at home to Ireland.
