Respecting referees should include TV process, says England coach Jones

Respecting referees should include TV process, says England coach Jones

It was revealed yesterday that World Rugby have admitted that Gareth Anscombe's "try" against England at Twickenham on Saturday evening, should have been given by the Television Match Official (TMO).

It was a close call but many observers felt Anscombe had been first to the ball although, even after numerous replay viewings, there appeared to be some doubt as to whether he had grounded the ball correctly. He just wants to make the right decision for the right reason.

"It was good to have dialogue with World Rugby... they confirmed the TMO made a mistake", Howley told the BBC.

Speaking on Sky Sports News, England's head-coach Eddie Jones expressed his belief that the statement doesn't do anyone any good.

Wales head-coach Warren Gatland labelled the decision "terrible" after the game and his assistant Rob Howley says Gatland's spoken to the world governing body's referees' chief.

Wales are third in the Six Nations following their loss to England but could be able to recall Leigh Halfpenny, Dan Biggar, Taulupe Faletau and Liam Williams for the clash with Ireland in Dublin on 24 February. "But we focus on the next two weeks and getting ready for Ireland".

'I just think once the game's done and dusted, that's the game. "If you only lose one game, the past has shown you can still go on and win the championship".


"If you have got in your nature that's your only concern and if you have got a massive desire to improve like he has, then you are going to go places".

Jones, who was at pains to point out that World Rugby had done this before, got on with his day job on Tuesday as England hosted Georgia in a training run at a West London school.

Hughes is expected to replace Sam Simmonds, whose shoulder injury rules him out of the games against Scotland and France.

"Our forwards learnt a lot", said Jones. "They had the superiority early on and we came back well".

The French Federation said the players had acted inappropriately and the investigation led to their plane home being delayed on Monday. They do different things.

Jonathan Davies, Gareth Davies and Jake Ball have all signed National Dual Contracts tying them to the Scarlets and keeping them in Wales, while Northampton have signed Australia's Fiji-born wing Taqele Naiyaravoro for the start of next season.
