Alun Wyn Jones England bemused by ‘weird’ Wales try but Eddie Jones refuses to blame referee

Alun Wyn Jones My sister says this plugin is magnificent.

Eddie Jones refused to criticise the match officials but England hooker Jamie George was bemused at Wales being awarded a “weird’ try when England were down to 13 men in Cardiff.

New Zealand-born halfback Willi Heinz had not yet been replaced while off field for a head injury assessment and wing Anthony Watson had not left the pitch after being yellow carded when Wales took advantage of the confusion to score the game’s only try in their 13-6 win on Saturday (Sunday NZ time).

George North touched down after some quick thinking by Wales’ man of the match Dan Biggar, who took a tap penalty to launch an attack while Ben Youngs waited on the sideline to replace Heinz.

Jones quipped England might have to take some lessons from rugby league club Wigan on how to defend with 13 men – but he stopped short of bagging referee Pascal Gauzere’s ruling.
