Wales head coach Warren Gatland was left fuming with the television match official after he decided not to award his side a first-half try in Saturday’s 12-6 defeat by England, BBC report.

Johnny May scored two tries for the hosts in the opening 20 minutes which looked to set England on their way to a routine victory.

However, moments later television match official Glenn Newman from New Zealand ruled Anthony Watson had beaten Wales full-back Gareth Anscombe to the ball, just as Wales thought they had responded immediately with a try of their own.

The controversial decision proved to be pivotal, and left many discussing the call, including Wales coach Gatland, who had some choice words for Newman.

They fly a guy over from New Zealand to be TMO and he has one big call to make and unfortunately I think he’s made a terrible mistake and at this level I think that’s pretty disappointing.

Understandably, England head coach Eddie Jones played down the incident, with the decision going for his side in the first half.

England’s fifth consecutive victory over Wales stretches their unbeaten home record under Jones to 15 matches, keeping them on course for a third successive Six Nations title.
