Eddie Jones' men won 12-6 at Twickenham, but the game's main talking point was a disallowed try for Wales' Gareth Anscombe.

Alain Rolland, the referees' chief at World Rugby, contacted Warren Gatland on Monday to acknowledge that Anscombe had grounded the ball ahead of Anthony Watson and that the inexperienced TMO had made the wrong decision.

Anscombe - who was denied his first test try in his 13th worldwide - felt he had scored.

However, following the standard refereeing review involving the match officials and World Rugby, the global governing body has confirmed to The42 that a TMO error took place and the try should have stood. "It has happened - it is disappointing that happens in professional sport".

"It was good to have dialogue with World Rugby over the weekend", Howley said, per WalesOnline.

Gatland later described the decision as a "terrible mistake" and his view has been supported by World Rugby, who said in a statement that "Wales should have been awarded a try as the Wales player grounded the ball".

Sam Moore was called up along with another apprentice in Harlequins wing Gabriel Ibitoye, who scored a try as England U20s beat their Welsh counterparts 37-12 in the 2018 age-grade Six Nations last Friday.

"There was plenty of time left after that decision", he added. "We had a couple of opportunities which we should have taken".
