Rassie Erasmus Trolls World Rugby By Teaching Springbok Owen Farrell Tackle 'Technique'

Many felt that the tackle should have at least resulted in a penalty being awarded to South Africa which would have given Erasmus' men the opportunity to win the game in what would have been the last kick of the contest.

Fortunately for Farrell, match referee Angus Gardner chose to take no further action and deemed the hard-hitting tackle fair, much to anger from the South African contingent.

Farrell was not cited for the tackle and will be available to face the New Zealand All Blacks this weekend.

Head coach Rassie Erasmus was the first to raise that point at the post-match media conference in London.

"Nothing upset me about the tackle".

Having already given an answer dripping with sarcasm in the wake of the controversial Owen Farrell tackle on André Esterhuizen on Saturday, where he said that he will just have to coach the Boks to tackle like that if it was deemed to be acceptable, Erasmus took it one step further on Monday.

The White House sought to brush aside suggestions it is stifling a free press. "What you said is so insulting to me", he said.

South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus was understandably angered by the decision and was deliberately sarcastic when discussing the incident afterwards.

"To tackle a guy like André and stop him in his tracks is unbelievable".

"World Rugby always sets standards and as the Springboks we always make sure we keep up with and follow those standards", said Stick.

England co-captain Owen Farrell escaped punishment after hitting Esterhuizen high with his shoulder late in 12-11 victory.

As you can see, Erasmus clearly tells Esterhuizen that he is not tackling right, showing instead he should be hitting around the chest area instead.
