Owen Farrell Slams Former England Teammate as “soft pr***”

Former England captain Owen Farrell was heard calling his ex-teammate Bevan Rodd a “diving git” during Saracens’ 20-10 loss to Sale Sharks a few weeks ago, marking Farrell’s final home game before his move to Racing 92 at the season’s end.

In a closely contested first half, the Saracens’ scrum was overpowered by the Sale pack, resulting in a penalty for the visitors just as Saracens seemed to be gaining momentum.

Following the scrum, Saracens’ tight-head prop Christian Judge lightly shoved his counterpart, Bevan Rodd, who then dramatically fell to the ground. This prompted a stern reaction from Farrell, his former England captain.

Referee Luke Pearce quickly intervened, admonishing Rodd with a firm “up you get.” Farrell’s critical comments were picked up by the referee’s microphone as he ran towards Rodd, expressing his frustration with the youngster’s theatrics.

Owen Farrell calls former England teammate a ‘Soft P***k’

Farrell got into heated argument with England teammate, they haven’t got on since

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. Dave Attwood

Former England lock Attwood has opened up on the latest RugbyPass Offload about his ongoing rivalry with Owen Farrell.

The Bath lock won the last of his 24 caps for England back in 2016, which could have a lot to do with his relationship with the current England captain.

He revealed: “On the pitch, I struggle a lot with Owen Farrell. We just don’t see eye to eye on a lot of things,

“He hates me with a passion. Despite my earthy roots, he thinks I am a posh c***. He hates that. I bagged rugby league once jovially. I was saying it to take the piss kind of thing, ‘a bloody sport for the peasants’. He f**kin’ hated it.”

“He had a bit of a shout at me and went off to the toilet and I followed him.

“We all had a drink or two after the game but we didn’t need to get carried away with this. I was in the urinal behind the door and he was three or four down and as I got in his dad walked in as well, he was coaching at the time. He was, ‘I don’t want to fuckin’ hear it’ or something like that and as he walked out he went to open the door and slam it into the back of me. There was like a stop on the floor so it hit the stop and almost clocked him back…

“We never really addressed it after that. That was where it started and it was like a drunken little bit of argy that went too far. He is an incredibly competitive athlete and he is also very f**kin’ good, he has got high standards. He is a very competitive athlete and in order to be that good, you have to flirt on the wrong side of competitive.

“So whenever we play each other there is always some element in the game where one of us is running at the other one or we are trying to bang each other. There always seems to be an element of that to it. I am sure he is like, I don’t even know that Dave is playing.”
