Eddie Jones slams officials as Wales get apology for disallowed try

World Rugby issue statement over TMO decision at Twickenham

WORLD RUGBY have admitted they made a howler in England's Six Nations victory over Wales.

"It is disappointing that happens in professional sport, but we focus on the next two weeks and getting ourselves ready for Ireland", the former Wales scrum-half added.

Wales coach Warren Gatland said Newman, a fellow New Zealander, had made a "terrible mistake" and that view was backed by World Rugby who said the visitors should have had a try on "as the Wales player grounded the ball". "You've got to realise that they basically scrum for a living".

World Rugby confirmed they had told Wales they should have been given the score even though Jones insists the matter should be consigned to history.

After beating Wales 12-6 last weekend, England are preparing to face Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday, 24 February when Ireland host Wales in Dublin.

England coach Eddie Jones said revisiting such incidents showed a lack of respect for match officials.

Jones said: "I just think once the game's done and dusted that's the game, you can't have retrospective refereeing of decisions being done".

"In Japan they have a great saying: at full-time there's no side". We've got to trust the referees, respect their integrity. "It was good to get in the front line a bit more, and I was able to make a couple of busts". The TMOs do an excellent job. One side's won, one side's lost.

Jones confirmed Sam Simmonds will miss the Scotland match as well as the trip to France, while Owen -Farrell and Anthony Watson are unable to train fully this week with unspecified lower-leg injuries.

"We had a rough start and didn't come out of the blocks well, so going back to the sheds at 12-7, it would have been a different ball game".

The French Federation said the players had acted inappropriately and the investigation led to their plane home being delayed on Monday. There's different ways of exerting pressure in scrums and some of it is old fashioned and some of it is new fashioned and they just do different things.

Anscombe was at the heart of Wales' best moments, particularly when he switched to fly-half for the final 25 minutes and kept his team playing front-foot rugby.
