Owen Farrell brutally mocked by Saints fans, loudest cheer of the night

In a dramatic Premiership semi-final clash between Northampton and Saracens, the loudest roar of the night at Franklin’s Gardens wasn’t for a try or a tackle—it was for a costly error by Owen Farrell.

The former England captain fumbled a poor pass, much to the home crowd’s delight. Social media also buzzed with reactions:

One fan tweeted, “That might be the loudest roar of the season after Owen Farrell drops the ball cold!”

Another added, “That cheer for Owen Farrell knocking the ball on is the loudest I’ve heard this season.”

A third commented, “Some people really do hate Owen Farrell. Glad he can just laugh.”

It was a moment that underscored the intense atmosphere and fierce rivalry on display.
