“Could be cited” – Owen Farrell’s tackle technique in the spotlight once again

Owen Farrell didn’t have his best game with his poor tackling technique brought into question once again following England’s 30-28 defeat against Australia.

An incident missed during the game saw Farrell appear to lean his shoulder into the head of the Wallabies man.

The only possible mitigation would be that Farrell attempted to wrap the arm.

FOUR PLAYERS EDDIE JONES SHOULD DROP:

#1. OWEN FARRELL

Rugby 365 on. Farrell 5/10: “Some good early touches but like so many others, faded out the game as the Wallabies stormed back. “

Telegraph on Farrell 5/10: “Midfield was often too flat, making it far too easy to defend.”

Rugby Pass on Farrell 5/10: “Missed a couple of kicks that might have applied further scoreboard pressure.”
