FORMER England boss Eddie Jones has stormed out of a press conference and blasted journalists for their negativity.
The Australia head coach fumed at the "worst press conference ever" before sarcastically claiming "we're terrible".
Jones has yet to win a match since replacing Dave Rennie in January, losing all four matches so far.
Speaking to the media before his team travelled to France for the Rugby World Cup, he fumed: "I can't believe the level of negativity here boys.
"I know what's wrong with Australian rugby, and part of you blokes have a problem because you're so bloody negative about everything, so negative about everything.
"We're going off to a World Cup you don't think we can win. You think the selection process is bad because the players complain, so I apologise for that.

"We'll go out there and do our best boys. So if you haven't got anything positive to say, don't ask."
Before storming out he added: "Thanks for the worst press conference I've ever had in world rugby. Well done – the worst I've ever seen."
Jones was then asked what he sees in his side, to which he sarcastically responded: "Nothing, mate. We're terrible."
Australia lost all three of their Rugby Championship matches before being beaten by New Zealand earlier this month.
