Their statement read: "World Rugby has clarified to the Wales team management as part of the usual review process with teams that the TMO made an error in the application of law during the England versus Wales match at Twickenham".

Jones targeted Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones and fly-half Rhys Patchell in his pre-match comments in an apparent bid to unsettle the visitors, with the former referring to the Australian as "Uncle Eddie" in response. World Rugby has got a history of giving retrospective decisions and I don't think it helps support the integrity of the referee.

We will get better as a side, and those players will get better, and when we've got the opportunity to bring some of that experience back into the team it will continue to make us stronger as well.

England boss Eddie Jones has been pleased with what he has seen from his side so farWhat Six Nations games are on this weekend?

"I know Warren Gatland spoke to Alain Rolland, and they confirmed that the TMO made a mistake", said Howley.

"In Japan they have a great saying: at full-time there's no side". Sometimes you get the rub of the green, sometimes you don't. "The TMO did an excellent job". The TMO has one big call to make and he has made a bad mistake.

England are next in action away to Scotland on February 23.

Sam Simmonds will miss at least the next two matches with a shoulder injury but off-setting his loss is the availability of Nathan Hughes, who Jones confirmed will start at number eight after recovering from a knee problem.

"Why wouldn't we want to scrummage against them?"

To help prepare for the rest of their campaign, as well as next year's World Cup, England will practice scrums and line-outs against Georgia on Tuesday and Wednesday.

Jones has relocated England to west London during the first of the two Six Nations fallow weeks and yesterday oversaw the first of two full-blooded training sessions against Georgia in preparation for the trip to Scotland on Saturday week. "There are different ways of accepting pressure in scrums - some of it's old-fashioned, some new-fashioned".

THE bonus point for Ireland saw them move to the top of the Six Nations table with two points more than England.
