Owen Farrell’s tackle technique has been questioned many times over the years but it appears the England captain still hasn’t learned his lesson – probably because he keeps getting away with it.
Farrell made his Championship debut last weekend as Saracens made light work of Doncaster Knights with a 50-15 win and played a key role. But it’s his tackle technique that is once again under the spotlight.
Former England outhalf posted the clip of Farrell who clearly comes in very high and with force on a Doncaster player as he clears his lines.
But somehow Farrell escaped a card on the day and was not cited. Have a look for yourself below. Crazy.
Say what you see, must be different tackle laws in the Championship, no card and no citing….. pic.twitter.com/gsAA4qoxg7
