England had established a 12-0 lead before the incident in the 23rd minute. Warren Gatland's men are on a high following their stunning 34-7 victory over Scotland in Cardiff last weekend, raising hopes that they could cause an upset against the defending champions.
"It looked like a try to me, everyone else I have spoken to who has seen it said it looked like a clear try", he told reporters. But it was clear he believed Mr. Newman had got it wrong.
"It is a pivotal moment in the game".
There was dismay, too, at the time it took Newman to make his judgement - around 70 seconds from the referral being made to the TMO making his recommendation - and Gatland suggested that he would seek clarity over how the officials arrived at the decision. At this level it is pretty disappointing.
"We'd looked at it ourselves in the box from a few different angles and we thought it was a try".
"I struggled with the wording [from the TMO]". I saw that differently. "He's got all the time in the world to make the decision and he makes it".
"But I had to ask the question because I felt there was a game, particularly, in the autumn, against Australia, where had we reviewed the play it probably wouldn't have stood, because of something that happened two rucks earlier". You can not do anything about it. "We're inside the tent and we need to deal with what goes on inside the white lines".

Duterte said while he did not question Canada's logic, his logic was based on "reality on the ground". "He is a good president". Duterte's friendly attitude toward Trump contrasts with his disdain for former U.S.
Eddie Jones was thrilled with England's tenacity in their hard-fought 12-6 win over Wales at Twickenham. That's exactly what Jones has done by questioning whether he has the bottle to cope with the expectation on his shoulders. "It was one part of the game that has done really well in rugby".
"We've got a guy up there who's a referee".
"It will be a special day for me and my family, but it won't count for much unless we get the win". It honestly doesn't matter who is running down my channel or who is in front of me, I'm there to do my job and make an effective tackle. If someone is unsure, particularly in professional sport, it is important we get clarity.
England raced out of the blocks at Twickenham as May opened the scoring with less than three minutes gone following a pinpoint kick from Owen Farrell. Joe Launchbury (Wasps) 5.
Jones is fully aware of how Wales will want to play and has targeted Rhys Patchell as a threat, calling him out in this afternoon's press conference.
"It was a win built around a lot of courage, a lot belief in the team. The effort in defence was first class".
"Those 82,000 have been great supporters for us in the past and will be great for us on Saturday".
Put it this way, you don't become the best team in the world, which is England's consistently stated goal, without beating Wales at home - it has to be a given. "Hopefully after the game I can celebrate then". Just sit back and relish as the two big beasts collide.
