Farrell could yet be punished for controversial tackle

Grant SmithNov 06, 2018

South Africa led 8-6 at halftime via a try for winger Sibusio Nkosi but they should have been much further ahead as England showed nothing at all in attack but stayed in range with two Farrell penalties.

"I've got no idea what can happen", the Australian added.

According to the Guardian, New Zealand paid for their tickets rather than receiving any complimentary hospitality from the RFU, going completely under the radar it seems!

All Blacks coach Steve Hansen will set aside his friendship with his England counterpart when their teams meet at Twickenham, expecting Eddie Jones to have done his homework on the world champions.

This was England's first match since Jones had brought former All Blacks coach John Mitchell into his backroom staff as defence supremo.

Foster compared New Zealand's well-rested first choice squad - who arrived three days earlier than the rest of the party from Tokyo - with the England camp, who are recovering from a brutal Springboks Test. "And looking from afar, I think he's doing a pretty good job".

'So no, I'm not going to give you reasons why we didn't pick him.

"They are a good rugby team". They've probably got more energy than us at the moment.

"Why has it got to be the most important game?" Because you guys want to sack me, is that why?

"We've got Courtney training fully and in that back five of the scrum, you saw Charlie Ewels come on at six at the weekend, so we've got a lot of good quality players back there".

"Talking to Eddie, I know he and England are very excited about this game, and we are, too", Hansen said this morning. "He had a 30-metre run up at me so it was tough, we both popped up off each other and it is hard to keep that under control".

The Autumn Internationals citing commissioner had until 5pm local Sunday to cite Farrell and World Rugby confirmed on Sunday evening that no citations had been issued from the weekend's Tests.
