Eddie Jones Slams World Rugby’s Statement On Gareth Anscombe Try

England head coach Eddie Jones says World Rugby’s statement on Gareth Anscombe’s disallowed try hurts the integrity of match officials.

The England head coach told Sky Sports News: “The referee’s decisions are made during the game. World Rugby has got a history of giving retrospective decisions and I don’t think it helps support the integrity of the referee.

“Once a game is done, that’s it. Get on with it. You can’t take back the decision.

“You’re upset but we’ve all had that. We’ve all experienced that situation. Sometimes you get the rub of the green, sometimes you don’t. You get on with it and move on.”

On the ‘worthwhile’ scrum session against Georgia

“Our forwards learnt a lot,” said Jones. “We went backwards once and then forwards a few times so it was a really good contested session.

“The players enjoyed it greatly and enjoyed the challenge of scrummaging against a different pack. It was certainly worthwhile.”
