Farrell escapes ban over Twickenham tackle; free to face All Blacks

Even the All Blacks stand off when Marx has the ball

Even the All Blacks stand off when Marx has the ball

Watching his England side overcome a half-time deficit to defeat South Africa at Twickenham, the 12-11 win was not enough to soothe the Australian's mood.

World Rugby said there were no citings arising from the test following reviews, or from the Wales-Scotland and Ireland-Italy matches on Saturday.

The clock had ticked past the 80-minute mark at Twickenham with England desperately trying to keep the Springboks at bay when Farrell smashed into replacement Andre Esterhuizen, knocking him back and dislodging the ball.

Citing commissioner Keith Brown had until 5pm (local time|) on Sunday to decide whether the challenge warranted a red card, which would have triggered a citing and disciplinary hearing.

But Farrell landed his third penalty from out on the left to edge the men in white back in front, and Pollard could only hit the upright with his attempted match-winner at the death.

"If it was all legal - and I didn't have a good look at the replay - we should start tackling like that."
Like, I don't understand this, guys.

Derrick Lewis breaks down loss vs. Daniel Cormier | UFC 230
Lesnar is expected to hold the championship at least until the Royal Rumble, but could end up unable to compete at the event. But, as happened in the first round, Cormier grabbed a single leg and swept Lewis to his back.

Jones, however, was in chippy mood when asked if Saturday's success had been the most important win of his near three-years in charge of England.

"I think everyone's been looking forward to the game". "Sometimes you can take what you want from it", Farrell said.

"As soon as anyone goes to the big screen you are (nervous)", Farrell told reporters.

England have not played reigning world champions New Zealand since 2014 and next week's showdown has been eagerly anticipated ahead of next year's World Cup in Japan.

All Australia's Super Rugby teams all have reasonably regular visits from referees but that is rarer when it comes to Test teams.

"He's going for an examination now [Monday afternoon] and the news probably isn't going to be too good".
