Farrell tackle a 'penalty'

England head coach Eddie Jones laughed off the prospect of Owen Farrell being cited for a risky tackle at the end of Saturday's 12-11 win over South Africa.

Wallabies five-eighth Kurtley Beale was the latest to express his view on Farrell's tackle ahead of Australia's test with Wales in Cardiff on Saturday (Sunday NZ time), calling for consistency with decisions.

Trailing by a point with the clock ticking over 80 minutes, the Springboks launched one last attack which was only stopped by a crunching tackle by Farrell on Esterhuizen that resulted in an England turn-over.

Citing commissioner Keith Brown decided it did not reach a red card threshold, which would have triggered a hearing.

But Farrell landed his third penalty from out on the left to edge the men in white back in front, and Pollard could only hit the upright with his attempted match-winner at the death.

"(The) Most important thing is what we do next", the Australian said.

"If that's the only way you can stop people and tackle like that, and it's in the rules, then we should tackle like that".

Speaking in the wake of England's controversial victory over the Springboks, Jones says he felt the on-field referee was being asked to do too much. Like, I don't understand this, guys.

"Why has it got to be the most important game?"

"He injured his ankle but beyond that we don't know how long, but for the next three Test matches he'll be unavailable for us - everybody else is available for selection".

Ex-international referee Jonathan Kaplan, from South Africa, said Gardner got it wrong, opining that Farrell's "arm wrapping around is an afterthought".

"When you get in those arm wrestles, someone's got to give".

"To beat the New Zealanders you've got to be unbelievably disciplined", he said.

Shields was born in Masterton to English parents and played for Hurricanes before moving to Wasps and tasting Test rugby with England.
