Owen Farrell gets away with ‘horror’ tackle against Doncaster

Owen Farrell has been labelled ‘extremely lucky’ after he avoided being cited for a dangerous hit during Saracens 50-15 win against Doncaster Knights.

In a clip shared by Andy Goode with the caption ‘must be different tackle laws in the Championship’, the England captain clearly makes dangerous contact with his opponents head.


Euan Broderick: Farrell making a dangerous tackle and not getting reprimanded for it? How is that breaking news?

Stuart Gordon: The Farrell law alive and well in the championship.

David Price: That can’t be Farrell. He actually wrapped his arms.

Richard Thompson: Doncaster player clearly dips as contact is about to happen. Stop this flagrant bullying/trolling of Farrell

Rugby Inside Line: What number is this now? He’s not going to get as lucky one day..
