“Could be red” – Joe Marler escaped punishment for head-on-head tackle

Referee Jaco Peyper and his team of officials have come under fire for not investigating a dangerous looking tackle from England prop Joe Marler.

One fan wrote: “That looked to me like Marler head contact immediately, goddam.”

Another commented: “Marler could get red”

A third said: “That’s head on head isn’t it? Looks like Marler head! Could be trouble this!”

“Was that head contact from Marler on Tuisue?” commented a fourth.

Six England players who flopped against Fiji at Twickenham

Take a look below to see which six England players really had a day to forget.

#1. Freddie Steward

Telegraph 3/10: “Ubiquitous in the warm-ups, the only player to start all four, but saved his worst until last. Could not catch a cold – admittedly in the midst of a downpour.”

Rugby Pass 4/10: “Turnovers in his game have become a concern and there were more here. Showed little in attack and also couldn’t shut the door as last man for the opening two Fijians tries, the second concession on 53 minutes the prompt for him to be subbed for Marcus Smith.”

Planet Rugby 2/10: “Great under the high ball but one-on-one defence isn’t good enough. Lacks pace and it’s exposed when England’s first-up rearguard is missing tackles.”
