WATCH: England coach Eddie Jones lauds adaptability of his team

Eddie Jones identified tactical flexibility as the reason England beat Wales after trailing at half-time.
A below par kicking display from fly-half George Ford was not enough to stop England from easing to victory, outscoring their opponents five tries to one. Ford missed all but one of his seven kicks at goal in a forgettable performance from the tee, but Jones was quick to defend the Bath man.
"I thought he was very good today," said Jones. "Obviously he didn't kick many goals but you have those days.
"As I've said before, Tiger Woods misses putts, Michael Jordan missed set shots. So you have those sorts of days but I thought his play today was wonderful.
"He has been though a difficult time, there's no doubt about it. It's not an easy time for him.
"I thought the confidence and aplomb he played with today put him in a very good position to move forward."
