England boss Eddie Jones says Owen Farrell is “missing part of his nose” following a horrific tackle by the USA’s John Quill in their World Cup clash yesterday.
Quill was shown the first red card of the tournament yesterday morning after he hit Farrell with a high, no-arms shoulder hit late in the game that resulted in the Saracens man losing a chunk of his nose.
“I think we’re about to barbecue part of his nose – I think someone has found it on the field!” Jones said
“He’s missing part of his nose, which is unfortunate, but he’s married and has got a child so he’s not looking for any young lass in Kobe tonight. He’ll be OK.”
Piers Francis meanwhile has been cited for an act of foul play contrary to Law 9.13 (dangerous high tackle) in the same game that could result in a ban for the centre.
