"It is what it is. We can't argue with the referee." - Eddie Jones & Owen Farrell react to the controversial calls

Eddie Jones and Owen Farrell both refused to comment on the controversial calls from referee Pascal Gauzere in England's loss to Wales on Saturday.

Eddie Jones' team felt hard done by in the first half with referee Pascal Gauzere at the centre of the discussion, allowing questionable tries from Josh Adams and Liam Williams to stand.


England were given little time to set from a penalty restart, and Biggar's kick found Adams, who raced over in the corner.


Just before halftime, Farrell channelled his frustration as he slotted a long-range penalty between the posts, though another contentious call then went against the Red Rose as Williams went over. Louis Rees-Zammit's fumble in the build-up was adjudged to have gone backwards, and Biggar's conversion clipped the post on its way through.


Questioned after the game on the calls, Owen Farrell simply said "there's no point in talking about" while his coach Eddie Jones said "It is what it is. We can't argue with the referee. The result is there in stone."




Former England and former Wales captains Martin Johnson and Sam Warburton both commented on the first try with the former speechless while the latter said he would be 'livid' if he were Owen Farrell.
