Marler claims England squad is 'tightest ever' despite the Brown-Te'o altercation

Gareth Anscombe will have a scan on Monday to determine the extent of the damage

"We've got processes for our performance and we are well aware of where we went wrong in the first half".

"We've had that conversation with Ben", said Jones.

"I could have picked more experienced players but I just don't feel they'll give us what the younger guys will give us", Jones said.

"They are adults, they're responsible, they want to play for England but we could have some problems".

Inside center Te'o had been prominent in Jones' team when fully fit.

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.

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

Barrett was sent off for a shoulder charge to the head of Australia captain Michael Hooper during New Zealand's 47-26 loss to the Wallabies in Perth on Saturday. We watched him in club rugby, he'd done particularly well and we thought we'd roll the dice and bring him into camp to see what he could offer.

"Gareth Anscombe is out of Rugby World Cup contention after sustaining an anterior cruciate ligament injury in the match against England yesterday", read a statement from the Welsh Rugby Union.

Owen Farrell - who did not play on Sunday - has retained the captaincy, with the Saracens star one of two flyhalves along with George Ford but, as expected, Danny Cipriani was not included.

"The message we have for them is that they have still got to be ready because the circumstances of the World Cup dictates that you have injuries".

"I think the game's changing a lot, too. But as we know the World Cup is an incredible tournament where opportunities can present themselves and all those players who have missed out have been told they have to be ready".

"We'd like to take three in every specialist position but that would leave us short in other positions, so we've made a decision to go with two at scrum-half and two at tighthead", Jones said.

England kick off their World Cup campaign on September 22, with Tonga the opponents in Sapporo, Japan.
