Owen Farrell slams England prop for ridiculous dive, he wasn’t happy

Former England captain Owen Farrell was unimpressed by the behavior of his ex-Test team-mate Bevan Rodd, who seemed to exaggerate a minor shove.

Former England fly-half Andy Goode wrote on x: “Bevan Rodd absolutely embarrassing himself with a dive from a slight push there, seriously pathetic. There’s too much gamesmanship in the game at the minute trying to get players carded.”

Responding, one fan commented: “Yep, we said so from the East Stand. The boy should be embarrassed, terrible behaviour.”

Another said: “Totally agree – turning into football at this rate.”

A third added: “Saw it in the Leicester game too, a clumsy sorting of a blatant offside, rolls around for a bit, milking it like like a cow until Jasper gets a red card, then gets up and scores.”

Scotland player was banned from Twickenham after scrap with Owen Farrell

England fly-half Owen Farrell is never afraid of sharing an opinion or two – especially when it’s about someone he doesn’t particularly like.

#1. Ryan Wilson

The Scotland back-rower was the instigator in some tunnel argy-bargy when the players returned to the changing rooms after the warm-up back in 2018 with Farrell at the centre.

Footage of the incident shows all hell breaking loose when Farrell barged his way past a number of Scotland players to confront Wilson, who had been attempting to get inside the head of George Ford.

Wilson later revealed he was banned from Twickenham following the incident.

“I remember that game, I was actually injured and after tunnel-gate, after everything that happened in the tunnel against England, I’d lined up a corporate gig at Twickenham,” he recalled to Rugby Pass in November.

“Had it all lined up, a little bit of cash, all excited, only to get a message back saying the RFU have banned you from Twickenham Stadium after everything that happened the year before.”
