Jones admits he was shocked at the severity of the cut on Rooneyâ€™s head after their collision â€“ but insists they joke about it now.
He said: â€œIt was one of those things. It could have happened to anyone. It was a bit clumsy from me but heâ€™s alright and itâ€™s healed nicely anyway.
â€œIt was a bit of a shock to see all the blood and the first thing I did was go and see him after training.
â€œBut, to be fair, he took it well. He didnâ€™t try and knock me out or anything!
â€œHe didnâ€™t give me any verbal back â€“ he was too worried about his forehead, to be honest!
â€œBut he was great with it. I apologised to him. We still have a laugh and a joke about it now."
