Springboks coach Rassie Erasmus trolls with high tackle video

Tackle a guy like Andre and stop him in his tracks is some going.

A decision to not award South Africa a penalty in the dying minutes of the Test against England on Saturday has raised questions with regards to the laws of the game.

During a press conference, Erasmus, very sarcastically, admitted that Farrell's tackle was very good and that if World Rugby says it's a legal tackle, then maybe the Boks should start tackling like that.

Gardner deemed it a legitimate tackle as he felt Farrell had made enough of an attempt to wrap his arms in the tackle.

Springbok head coach Rassie Erasmus is a man of his word it words it seems, after he was spotted trolling World Rugby this week in training following Owen Farrell's controversial tackle on André Esterhuizen over the weekend.

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

We showed great character and I am so pleased with the way we played, trying to be patient and not making rash decisions'. However, defeat for the visitors ended their chances of progressing from the group.

Austin Healey's response to the video made us laugh!

"'We should start tackling like that and execute it like that", Erasmus said.

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

"Angus Gardner is a world-class referee, who is rated by World Rugby".

Many similar instances, though, have resulted in penalties and cards.
