Blow for Wales as Gareth Anscombe is ruled out of World Cup

Piers Francis also started the game, while Courtney Lawes came off the bench for England and Dan Biggar got some minutes as a replacement for Wales.

We've had that conversation with Ben.

"I'm not going to go into reasons why he (Te'o) was not selected", Jones said.

"Also about the attitude of the players, not trying to push the pass or do something extraordinary in defence, so that's a good sign for us".

The Australian said: "He's got a bit of an AC joint, we don't feel it's too serious".

But Jones did leave the door ajar to a late call-up although he would not confirm if Te'o - or indeed anyone else - was on a standby list.

England coach Eddie Jones has slammed the red card shown to All Blacks lock Scott Barrett as "ridiculous", saying the Wallabies were beneficiaries of another case of inconsistent Test refereeing.

Yet his party for Japan features an uncapped player in Bath wing Ruaridh McConnochie, with three of his 31 - scrum-half Willi Heinz, flanker Lewis Ludlam and hooker Jack Singleton all only making their England debuts in Sunday's 33-19 warm-up win over Wales at Twickenham.

As expected, Jones left out former captain Dylan Hartley, scrumhalf Danny Care, flyhalf Danny Cipriani and fullback Mike Brown, the player New Zealand-born Te'o had an altercation with at a camp in Treviso last month.

"Firstly I think it's always nice to bring new blood in, it always freshens things up", Jones added.

"We saw two instances today when that could have happened, and I urge World Rugby - though I don't think they do anything at great pace - to get some consistency in that area".

A Sanzaar judiciary is yet to rule on a unsafe tackle charge but Jones said the on-field red card was too harsh and feared such decisions would ruin key clashes at the World Cup in Japan.

Jones has gambled by taking only two scrum-halves with Heinz providing cover for Ben Youngs, who is first choice in the position.

England plays Tonga, the United States, Argentina and France in the group stage at the World Cup.

"We want the squad to know early and now we can get on and be the best prepared England side there has ever been, ready to win the World Cup".
