World Rugby say TMO wrong over Wales no-try call

World Rugby admit Wales try at Twickenham should have counted despite Eddie Jones' pleas

Kiwi back Gareth Anscombe felt he should have been awarded a Six Nations try but has insisted New Zealand video referee Glenn Newman's controversial call was not to blame for Wales' loss to England.

Leigh Halfpenny has been ruled out of Wales' clash with England in the Six Nations.

Their statement read: "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 debate has raged on about whether Anscombe was robbed of his moment, but backs coach Rob Howley has now confirmed that the TMO made an error.

South Africa's Jonathan Kaplan, rated the game's best referee at the peak of his powers, wrote in the Telegraph Newspaper that try should have been awarded and Welsh coach Warren Gatland said the TMO had made at bad mistake.

After the game he attacked the media for their treatment of Mike Brown, and now he has set his sights on World Rugby after they admitted Gareth Anscombe's disallowed try should have been given.

"There was plenty of time left after that decision", he added.

England head coach Eddie Jones also recalled British & Irish Lions forwards James Haskell and Joe Marler who were suspended for the opening two rounds.

The England pack took part in scrum and lineout sessions at Latymer Upper School as part of a two-day training session with Milton Haig's side, and Jones believes it will benefit them in their NatWest 6 Nations campaign.

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".

Despite their sense of frustration, Wales remain in title contention with six points from two games, although an away victory over Ireland in 13 days' time is now essential to keeping silverware hopes alive.

"In Japan they have a great saying: at full-time there's no side". Anscombe's right hand clearly gets to the ball before Watson is able to ground it.

"The conditions improved in the second half and the way we reacted from 12-0 down to get back into the game was good. If you only lose one game, the past has shown you can still go on and win the championship". "It was good to get in the front line a bit more, and I was able to make a couple of busts".
