Emma Raducanu to pass up invite to Twickenham after Eddie Jones furore
The Guardian says Emma Raducanu is set to skip the Rugby Football Union’s open invitation to attend an England match this autumn, the Guardian understands, despite Eddie Jones expressing his hope that “we’ll see her at Twickenham shortly”.
Jones revealed on Thursday that he had personally sent Raducanu a letter to clarify comments he made about the trappings of fame, which provoked a furious backlash and led to the England head coach being accused of sexism. It is understood, however, that while Raducanu has an open invitation to Twickenham from the RFU, she is not expected at either Saturday’s match against Australia or the one against South Africa a week later.
