TMO frustration shouldn't mask more strides by Wales at Twickenham

Elliot Daly crossed for the match-winner in last season's Six Nations

Anscombe looked like he touched the ball down first but the TMO decided that Anthony Watson touched it first, meaning the score was disallowed.

Anscombe's late penalty brought Wales to within a converted try of causing an upset but England dug deep to hang on and claim the victory. "He clearly has hit hand on the ball".

"To me, it's disappointing that you get that decision wrong and it's such a pivotal moment in the game, such a big decision".

"You guys are better selectors than we are, that's what you think you are". "I was really proud of the guys in terms of the effort", Gatland added. "Wales are tough, well-coached and a good side".

Rookie fly-half Rhys Patchell, who was the target of a pre-match verbal attack from Eddie Jones, is expected to take over kicking duties.

Not that it was exactly required.

Wales Online rate Anscombe, alongside captain Alun Wyn Jones, as Wales' man of the match.

"You get that habit by working harder than other teams".

Saranac Lake's Chris Mazdzer wins first ever men's luge singles medal
Mazdzer broke the course record Loch had set moments earlier to vault into second place, putting together a flawless run. The U.S. had won five medals in luge since the sport was introduced to the Games in 1964, but none in men's singles.

If Jones' prophecy over Patchell had been anything other mischievous, the Aussie can't have imagined it would ring true as early as the third minute.

Three England World Cup winners, Sir Clive Woodward, Johnny Wilkinson and Will Greenwood, who were working as television analysts, agreed the try should have been awarded, as did ex-Welsh internationals Gareth Thomas and Shane Williams.

Two years ago at Twickenham his side had been denied a potentially match-winning try by an errant flag from a touch judge. He knocked on then missed a long-range penalty kick to the left.

"It looked like a try to me and everyone else that I've spoken to who's seen it says it looks like a clear try", Gatland said.

A superb piece of ripping in defence by Justin Tipuric allowed Wales to break up an England attack in their 22 and develop another brilliant counter-attack that earned them a penalty on the other 22 that Anscombe kicked to provide the first points of second half with six minutes left to play.

England and Wales relied on kicking games in a constant drizzle to pressure, and England was better at it against a Wales side rocked before the match by the withdrawal of fullback Leigh Halfpenny, forcing a first championship start on Anscombe.

The vast majority of the scoring came during the opening 40 minutes of the clash, with May's brace proving decisive come full time.
