England's Vunipola and Genge leave tour of South Africa

The RFU has given Eddie Jones its backing

"South Africa is a hard place to win and that is why England have a poor record here and we are not improving that record but we are going to do everything in our power this week to improve that record with a win in Cape Town".

Frustrations boiled over after the final whistle when prop Joe Marler swore at a Springbok fan before Mike Brown continued the verbal exchange with a group of supporters and Ben Youngs walked away from a television interview.

"We'll have to make sure we look back at it and see where we went wrong, but there were some big moments in that game where we weren't composed enough and we will have to learn from it".

Jones made a triple substitution, but when No. 8 Nathan Hughes was shown a yellow card for a professional foul with 11 minutes remaining, a fifth straight test defeat became inevitable for England.

Jones was initially lauded when he took the job after England were knocked out of the 2015 World Cup in the pool phase and led them to 18 successive wins. "The players are hurting, the coaches are hurting, I'm hurting and we've just got to keep at it and find a solution, and we will".

"(We) started the game well.

With scrumhalf Faf de Klerk marshalling South Africa and keeping England pegged back with accurate box-kicking, the pressure on the visitors began to tell in the rising penalty count.

"It's just about sticking together, understanding what you can improve and the emotions of the situation". These [the touring party] are the best players we've got.

The Leicester scrum-half's conduct was condemned by World Cup-winning coach Sir Clive Woodward and he later apologised on social media.

After another loss Jones said: "I'm obviously very disappointed".

"One hundred and twenty-six days have now elapsed since England last won a game of test rugby and the long wait goes on", Rob Kitson wrote in The Guardian.

"This team has a lot of pride".

"We lost momentum in that second half", he said.

"There's plenty of pride in there".

Billy Vunipola's older brother Mako is also on his way home to attend the birth of his first child while Ellis Genge's tour is over as well because of a knee problem, resulting in a call-up for Alec Hepburn.

Vunipola is heading back to the United Kingdom to attend the birth of his first child, Press Association Sport understands.
