Australian syndicate legend Eddie Jones may have just led England to a series win over the Wallabies – but he took a big exception to being branded a ‘traitor’, branding the heckler a ‘clown’ after the fiery post-match incident.

In footage posted to social media on Sunday, Jones, who once coached the Wallabies, was walking near the border past England at SCG when an Australian fan shouted “you’re a traitor”.

Known for his famously fiery temper, Jones didn’t just let the sled slide.

He had to be restrained by a security guard as he attempted to confront the fan, demanding that he “come here and say it” repeatedly.

The security guard could be heard telling the heckler in the video, “I’ve talked to you before,” before waving him away.

He did not speak about the event immediately after the match, but confirmed that he was hacked by the same fan several times during the clash.

“Clowns think they have a right to abuse coaches,” he told the Sun Herald.

Jones, who has Japanese heritage, had a long career as a hooker for the Galloping Greens before embarking on a legendary coaching career.

He had successful spells with the Brumbies and Reds before coaching Australia between 2001 and 2005, and coached Japan before becoming England manager in 2015.

Fans were quick to support Jones, with one writing “easy to be a hero behind a fence, Eddie stood up to him”, while another commented that it was “just a cheap shot from cheap seats”.

Letting the heckler know that Australian coach David Rennie is actually a New Zealander is a hilarious accompaniment to the ridiculous ‘traitor’ comment.

The 62-year-old admitted after England’s 25-17 win in the second Ella-Mobbs Cup Test at Suncorp Stadium that he liked being able to calm down the Wallabies fans.

“You have 48,000 people full of booze and all they want is for their team to win.” When you turn them down, it’s a great experience. A great feeling,” Jones said.

“Before the game, they come and say to me: ‘You’re going to be belted tonight. Now they are a bit quieter. So it’s good. I like this.

A packed SCG was a sea of ​​gold on Saturday night, but sadly home fans returned home disappointed after an error-riddled display from Australia saw England win the series decider 21- 17.

There was also a lot of rowdiness on the pitch during the series, with England captain Courtney Lawes admitting after winning the series his side used feedback from Australian players as motivation.

“We’ve seen a lot in the press about some of their players saying, some people targeting Gengey (Ellis Genge), some people calling us ‘Poms’ and so on,” he said.

‘That’s all the fuel for our tank. Any good team uses this as motivation.

The Ella-Mobbs trophy bore Lawes’ fingerprints all over it. The flanker has firmly established himself as England captain in recent weeks.

He’s pleasantly laid back off the pitch but relentlessly intense on it. His laissez-faire approach to leadership allowed the youngsters to shine, with back three tyros Freddie Steward and Tommy Freeman playing key roles in last night’s win.
