May brace sees England past Wales at Twickenham

  • Gatland laments 'terrible' TMO call after England defeat

After every game we will always review our performance and see what lessons can be learnt, what we need to improve on, and looking to see if there was anything that we got very wrong in the game plan that we need to go away and practise. You fly a guy over from New Zealand and he has one big call to make. "And at this level I think that's pretty disappointing". Not to be given what we thought was a legitimate try was a massive moment. "The wording was the grounding wasn't clear, but we've had a look at it from a few different angles and you can clearly see he has his hand on the ball".

Anscombe appeared to beat England wing Anthony Watson in a race for the loose ball in the 23rd minute of Wales' 12-6 loss at Twickenham on Saturday (Sunday NZ time). I can not do much about it now, but guys have to get those decisions right.

"I'm sure Wales will claim they were unlucky, and maybe they were, but we have a TMO up there that makes the decision", he said. You can not do anything about it.

Courtney Lawes has warned Wales that England will be "hunting" them at Twickenham when the two sides clash in the Six Nations on Saturday.

"I thought there was downward pressure".

England's leader Hartley had one of rugby's most notorious run-ins with a referee when he was sent off in the English Premiership final of 2013 at Twickenham for swearing at Wayne Barnes, and banned for 11 weeks. "We've lost Dan Biggar and other guys".

"They've got a strong 15, a strong 23 or 24, but we'll have to face them off".


There was dismay, too, at the time it took Newman to make his judgement - around 70 seconds from the referral being made to the TMO making his recommendation - and Gatland suggested that he would seek clarity over how the officials arrived at the decision.

Farrell did miss the conversion, though, so praise wasn't exactly universal for the 26-year-old as England missed the opportunity to take a more comfortable lead just minutes in.

May then latched on to a fine one-handed offload from Joe Launchbury midway through the opening half to double both his and England's tally.

The highly-experienced veteran of 114 Wales caps and three British and Irish Lions tours chose humour over high dudgeon to deal with Jones the coach's questioning of his behaviour. "That's borrowed from another sport and I really hope World Rugby don't allow that to creep into the game", Jones said.

Leigh Halfpenny's late withdrawal ensured that the contingent hailing from the Pro12 champions had been reduced to nine yet nonetheless it was another chance to show how close the region could get to a team supposedly building towards a second World Cup crown in 2019. We have to continually remember that.

"This is the sort of thing where you can choose your friends but you can't choose your family".
