The TMO ruled that Wales fullback Gareth Anscombe failed to ground the ball properly in an incident in the 23rd minute of the game at Twickenham.

A World Rugby spokesperson said: 'World Rugby has clarified to the Wales team management as part of the usual review process with teams that the TMO made an error in the application of law during the England versus Wales match at Twickenham. "The game's done and dusted, so we've got to trust the referees and respect their integrity".

England boss Eddie Jones has been pleased with what he has seen from his side so farWhat Six Nations games are on this weekend?

Rob Howley was speaking to the media today and according to BBC Sport, the assistant coach confirmed that World Rugby's Alain Rolland agreed that the try should have stood.

Former Australia coach Jones, recalling his time in charge of Japan, said: "In Japan they have a great saying: "At full-time there's no side". In the second-half, some of their players started to tire, the weather conditions got a bit better and we started to open up a little bit". So many big calls have been made in the last few seasons that have been wrong. "The TMO did an excellent job".

Sam Simmonds could miss England's upcoming Six Nations worldwide away to Scotland after being omitted from the squad selected for this week's training camp in London.

England's Six Nations title defence resumes against Scotland at Murrayfield on Saturday week amid mixed fortunes on the injury front.

Jones' squad is made up largely of the same players that have featured in the championship so far this month, with loosehead prop Joe Marler joining Haskell in returning from suspension, while Hughes is included after making his comeback from a two-month knee injury in Wasps' 44-22 victory over Harlequins on Sunday.

Anthony Watson and Owen Farrell are expected to recover from the unspecified knocks they sustained against Wales, but Elliot Daly has now suffered damage to his calf having completed his rehabilitation from an ankle complaint.

"Our forwards learnt a lot", said Jones. We invited him to the camp and he came. They understand the game and they've got vast experience.
