Sam Moore was called up along with another apprentice in Harlequins wing Gabriel Ibitoye, who scored a try as England U20s beat their Welsh counterparts 37-12 in the 2018 age-grade Six Nations last Friday. "It has happened - it is disappointing that happens in professional sport".

In a statement later on Tuesday, World Rugby said: "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 v Wales match at Twickenham".

Jones' England also engaged in an worldwide forwards session ahead of last year's November Tests when Wales crossed the Severn to pack down against the back-to-back Six Nations champions.

"The TMOs don't always get it right, which is frustrating, but you can't do much about that".

"I just think once the game's done and dusted that's the game, you can't have retrospective refereeing of decisions being done".

"It was good to have dialogue with World Rugby".

"The conditions improved in the second half and the way we reacted from 12-0 down to get back into the game was good".

"In Japan they have a great saying: at full-time there's no side".

England have now won 15 straight games on home soil and 25 from 26 since Jones became head coach. "If you only lose one game, the past has shown you can still go on and win the championship".

"Once a game is done, that's it. Get on with it".

"I love going to Dublin, the players enjoy it and you are up against one of the best sides in the world. The TMO did an excellent job".

Nathan Hughes was present at number eight following his recovery from a knee injury ahead of his likely recall for the clash with Scotland on Saturday week. "There are different ways of accepting pressure in scrums - some of it's old-fashioned, some new-fashioned". "The boys learnt a number of different things".

Jones singled out Farrell for special praise afterwards and he said: "He played really well".

"Elliot Daly has come back but now he's injured his other calf, we're not sure how serious that is".

"At this moment, the redness of the foot and the infection is okay", Howley said, of Halfpenny.
