Neville - I did see some video which I suspect might be that you are referring to which was taken from that side of the ground looking past the touch judge and the England trainer. I only saw it one but it did seem to indicate it was a try but (a) that video wasn't available to the TMO (he was watching what we were being shown at the time) and (b) I thought there was enough evidence with what we saw at the time to indicate he didn't score and so I would like to see that new footage again to see if it is clear that the ball was on/over the line (as he certainly grounded it before the line before he continued).
I'll check on youtube - but my main issue above was that the Ref and TMO could not be blamed for not awarding the try. I personally rather hope he didn't actually score as I've had enough of England not getting the benefit of the doubt in crucial decision (e.g. Cueoto in RWC final and countless footy decisions), and I don't want to develop any sort of chip!
