Tackle like Farrell? Rassie makes his point

Eben Etzebeth injured his ankle against England

The tackle led to a South Africa turnover before England kicked the ball into touch to win the game.

Australian referee Angus Gardner thought otherwise, and blew the final whistle for a 12-11 defeat for the Boks.

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

"'We should start tackling like that and execute it like that", Erasmus said.

Farrell is now free to face the All Blacks at Twickenham on Sunday morning (NZT).

Three days on and it appears Erasmus is still feeling a little bitter after a video emerged of him appearing to "coach" the Farrell tackle following the English fly-half's attempt to win the ball was deemed fair and he escaped a citing.

"It's good to welcome Faf, Willie, Cheslin and the others back into the squad", South Africa's Director of Rugby and head coach said Rassie Erasmus said in a press release.

Esterhuizen began by hitting the tackle bag low down before Erasmus, in jest, persists to point to the top of the bag and urges his player to use his shoulder more forcefully.

"I'm not commenting on this", he said when asked again whether Erasmus faced punishment for his comments at Twickenham.

The video was filmed at the end of Monday's training session at the French Olympic High Performance Centre in Paris, which had been closed to media, but a Springboks spokesperson insisted to Sport24 that the footage had not been filmed or disseminated by a team representative.

Nevertheless, the game ended in controversy as Farrell was the subject of a TMO decision after a potentially risky tackle on Andre Esterhuizen allowed the hosts to regain possession and kick the ball out of play.
