Things are getting heated in Twickenham with CJ Stander and Owen Farrell losing their cool in a bizarre moment.
The England captain clearly holds onto the number eight at the base of a ruck who does everything in his power to bash the outhalf off his leg before carrying him several steps with Farrell clinging on.
In the end, the referee and TMO awarded a penalty to Ireland, judging that Stander didn’t punch him but simply try to slap the Saracens man who was instead penalised for his part.
Have a look for yourself. A bizarre altercation.
