Jones refuses to drawn into war.

EDDIE JONES insists England do not need mind games to motivate them for tomorrow's Calcutta Cup clash with Scotland.

Jones has adopted a tactful approach to the Six Nations showdown at Murrayfield by refusing to engage in the phoney war that has seen the vast majority of the shots fired from north of the border.

Scotland head coach Gregor Townsend has accused the English of repeated offside in defence while second-row great Doddie Weir views the champions' dismissal of Murrayfield as "arrogance".

But Jones said: "They have brought out every strategy you can think of.

"I'm sure there's an ex-Scottish player ready to come out and say something about how 'they hate us'.

"It's designed to get them up for the game. We're up the game regardless of what's said."
