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

There were widespread media reports of 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.

When Jones was asked about the incident, he said: “No, I’m not able to confirm that. I think I’ve answered the question.”
