Faf de Klerk taken out by brutal tackle against Saracens

Wales international Aled Davies left Sale Sharks scrum-half Faf de Klerk sprawled on floor with Austin Healey calls for punishment.

The Saracens scrum-half was yellow carded for the ‘reckless’ hit.

Commentating for BT Sport, Austin Healey immediately thought it had to be a red. “I think Davies has gone for that challenge. I think it’s a head on head. It’s reckless. There’s no arm, is there?” he declared.

Giving his thoughts, fellow ex-English international Ben Kay added: “If there’s any head contact, he’s in big trouble Davies. He does get nudged by his own player as he’s going in there. That might be the only mitigation.

“He’s actually trying to pull out and Koch almost nudges him into De Klerk. The problem is he is already at a reckless speed. He’s in trouble here.”
