Wales coach Gatland blasts TMO for 'terrible mistake'

Wales coach Gatland blasts TMO for 'terrible mistake'

Two early tries from Jonny May helped England beat Wales 12-6 and stay on track for a third successive outright Six Nations title on Saturday.

Newman said Joseph had got their first and that Anscombe had failed to exert enough downward pressure on the bouncing ball. They also looked more unsafe when New Zealand-born fullback Gareth Anscombe moved to flyhalf in the second half.

That gave England breathing space until a late Anscombe penalty but the restart after he made it 12-6 meant they were always pinned back in awful conditions. I never thought it would be a routine win.

When the reporter said, 'He was just good today, wasn't he?', the England coach retorted.

From the restart, Wales took the ball through 23 phases, won a penalty and kicked for touch as the clock ticked past 80 minutes.

England brought on the former Ospreys flanker Sam Underhill at half-time in place of the injured Sam Simmonds and the first major break of the second half came when Aaron Shingler raced 40 metres and kicked into the England 22.

Despite their heavy defeat, Wales coach Rowland Phillips said his side had to take confidence from their performance.

England, meanwhile, remain unbeaten and their boss Eddie Jones believes that the TMO got the decision correct.

Crucially TMO Glenn Jackson saw things differently: "No try".

Many of his team would have been willing to join him after May scored an extraordinary second after Joe Launchbury's pass round the corner, before Anscombe was denied what looked a certain try despite grounding the ball before the covering Anthony Watson.

It will be 26-year-old Anscombe's 13th cap, but his full Six Nations debut.

Pence did say, however, that Moon shared with him details of his meeting with North Korean leaders, without elaborating. The report also highlighted the joint entry by the two teams of the DPRK and South Korea into the stadium.


The Harlequins fullback has been Jones' man in the 15 jersey for each of his 24 Test matches in charging.

Much of the build-up had centred around Jones' taunting of Wales fly-half Rhys Patchell who was making only his second start when compared with England's creative and established trio of George Ford, Owen Farrell and Danny Care - the Leeds-born scrum-half who became England's most-capped No 9 when winning his 78th cap from the start. Mike Brown, you guys all tell me he can't play test rugby.

"Looked to have been harshly denied a touchdown by the TMO and kicking wasn't great at full-back but the late stand-in had his moments as a runner and, operating at 10, really came to the fore", Wales Online stated.
