Tackle like Farrell? Rassie makes his point

Even the All Blacks stand off when Marx has the ball

"It gives an opportunity for someone else to play No.7".

England coach Eddie Jones backed Owen Farrell to avoid being cited for a risky tackle that could rule him out of next week's clash with New Zealand as he turned on his critics following a nail-biting 12-11 win over South Africa on Saturday.

England's Owen Farrell, left, tackles South Africa's Andre Esterhuizen near the end during the rugby union worldwide between England and South Africa at Twickenham stadium in London.

There was then four successive games with six tries scored - against Australia in Sydney and Auckland, against Argentina in Nelson, and against South Africa in Wellington, despite the latter seeing them on the wrong end of the scoreline.

Gardner's position though has been strengthened by the fact that Farrell wasn't cited afterwards.

"[It] should have been a penalty".

'So I think the referees are doing a great job.

"Farrell led with his right shoulder and his left arm belatedly came up".

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.

Eddie Jones believes rugby union will eventually follow the NRL example and resort to having two referees oversee a match in response to its increasing intensity.

The match-defining moment has many wondering about the interpretations of the law.

World Rugby has confirmed there is no citing arising from the 12-11 victory at Twickenham on Saturday.

"It is inconsistent at times: a couple of years ago it [Farrell's challenge] is a red card, or a yellow or a penalty", he told reporters. 'You've been involved in rugby, things don't change quickly'. "Clarity will come with that". He ran hard, it's hard to get your arms around when you're both hitting each other at that much force.

Referee Angus Gardner chose not to penalise Farrell for the tackle, a decision that's been criticised and applauded by pundits.
