“We’re really looking forward to this final, playing France and having another chance to win a trophy this autumn,” Jones said on Friday.

“We’d like to congratulate the tournament organisers on putting this on in difficult circumstances.

“Over the past two months the players have put in real effort, worked very hard on and off the pitch and have met the protocols and new ways of working.

“This has been another positive learning week with tough, hard training and we’re looking forward to getting on the pitch in front of our fans and playing a good game of rugby.”
