England’s World Cup build-up has been disrupted by a spat between Ben Te’o and Mike Brown and a clutch of injury withdrawals before Sunday’s Test against Six Nations champions Wales.

A Rugby Football Union spokesman confirmed there was an “altercation” during a social event at the squad’s heat and humidity training camp in Italy last week.

As a result, Te’o and Brown were dropped from the squad for Sunday’s visit of Wales to Twickenham in a match staged 24 hours before head coach Eddie Jones finalises his 31-man World Cup squad.

Despite the RFU’s earlier admission, Jones bizarrely replied when asked about the incident: “No, I’m not able to confirm that. I’m not able to confirm. I think I’ve answered the question.”
