Jonny May’s stunning hat-trick inspired England to a big win over France at Twickenham and Eddie Jones compared his indefatigable winger to a dog chasing a tennis ball.
“Jonny May is like the dog in the park, chasing after the tennis ball at 100mph and bringing it back,” said Jones at his post-match press conference. “He does that very well.
“He’s really worked hard on his game. Jonny May is one of the hardest-working guys in our team. He works hard on his high-ball catching, he works hard at his chasing, he works hard at his physical condition and his improvement is all due to his desire to be the best.
“Chris Ashton was excellent as well and we’ve got good competition for those spots. We’ve got big Joe [Cokanasiga] coming back [from injury] next week, Jack Nowell came off the bench and did superbly for us, so it’s a competitive area.
“Going back to Jonny May – that’s what drives the desire of Jonny to be better because he knows he has to in order to stay in the side.”
