England's Simmonds set to miss Scotland Six Nations clash

England's Simmonds set to miss Scotland Six Nations clash

World Rugby announced on Tuesday that television match official Glenn Newman had erred in denying Wales's Gareth Anscombe a try with England 12-0 up in the second quarter on Saturday.

It was the major talking point of England's 12-6 victory over Wales at Twickenham - Gareth Anscombe's disallowed try in the first half when it appeared that he grounded the ball before Anthony Watson.

'In accordance with law 21.1 b, Wales should have been awarded a try as the Wales player grounded the ball'.

England coach Eddie Jones has arranged two days of scrummaging sessions with Georgia in London this week and promised they'll have the same intensity as a test match.

"I'm on a good behaviour bond so I've got to be careful what I say, but I just think that once the game's done and dusted that's the game", the Australian added. "We had a couple of opportunities which we should have taken".

"When I say respect the referee, that's the TV process as well". "It was one part of the game that has done really well in rugby".

Wales assistant coach Rob Howley said it was "disappointing" but that "there was plenty of time after that decision".

Erin Hamlin's family reminisces about Hamlin's first luge experience
After the Pyeongchang Games, Hamlin said that she is going to take some time to relax and finish planning her wedding. Summer Britcher, who set a track record of 46.132 seconds on this luge course during Monday's runs, finished 19th.

"In Japan they have a great saying: at full-time there's no side". So many big calls have been made in the last few seasons that have been wrong.

"Every scrum has to be intense otherwise you get folded up like a travel map stuffed in your back pocket", captain and hooker Hartley said.

England are next in action away to Scotland on February 23. Elliot Daly, meanwhile, has suffered a setback in his return from a high ankle sprain, sustaining a separate calf injury, and he will be reassessed next week.

England will use the Six Nations' first fallow week to train with Georgia - who have the world's "ugliest, strongest pack", according to boss Eddie Jones.

They ruled that Joubert, who sprinted off the pitch at the end of the match, should have awarded a scrum to Australia instead of the penalty that knocked Scotland out of the tournament.

After being dominated for lengthy periods by the English side's superior kicking and territorial game, it is likely that Wales will change up their selection for the Dublin encounter - particularly amongst the back three, with fit-again Leigh Halfpenny likely to join George North and perhaps Liam Williams there.
