Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus’ comments dripped with sarcasm after Owen Farrell's armless, unpunished 'tackle' from Saturday's clash at Twickenham.


After the game, Erasmus said, “Nothing upset me, because if it was legal we just have to latch on a little bit and tackle the same. If it was legal, we should do it because it’s very effective. To tackle a guy like Andre Esterhuizen like that and stop him in his tracks, that’s unbelievable, so we’ll have to try and practice that.”

The Springbok coach is clearly still in a sarcastic mood after new video footage emerged which shows Erasmus teaching Esterhuizen in Paris on how to execute a “successful” tackle.



The world watched how Farrell executed a tackle with no arms on Esterhuizen but Aussie referee Angus Gardner decided not to award the penalty to the Boks.
