: 02/13/2018 - 17:25

World Rugby has confirmed an error was made by the television match official when a Wales try wasn't awarded in their Six Nations defeat to England.

Gareth Anscombe's effort during the 12-6 loss at Twickenham was disallowed on the basis there was no clear evidence of grounding the ball, although the video replays clearly showed the Wales player grounding the ball.

France have dropped 8 players for "inappropriate behaviour", who went on a night out in Edinburgh after their defeat by Scotland in the Six Nations on Sunday.

Among them are try-scoring winger Teddy Thomas and veteran flanker Louis Picamoles.

Their plane's departure was delayed yesterday because police wanted to question some members of the squad over an incident they might have witnessed in a Paris Nightclub.

Police established that no crime was committed.

Ulster's comfortable Pro 14 win over the Southern Kings last Friday has come at a cost.

It's been revealed Charles Piutau suffered a dislocated rib cartilage, and will be out for an unspecified length of time.

Sean Reidy, meanwhile, will be out for around six weeks after sustaining a medial ligament knee injury.

And Rob Lyttle is out for 4-to-6 weeks with a hamstring injury.

However, Andrew Trimble and Peter Nelson are back in contention for Friday's meeting with Edinburgh.

Hull City midfielder Ryan Mason has been forced to retire at the age of 26 on medical advice.
