Eddie Jones calls for two on-field referees

  • Springboks fans are some of the most passionate in the world

Owen Farrell's late penalty snatched a 12-11 victory for injury-hit England in their opening November worldwide as sloppy South Africa were left to rue a lack of ruthlessness at Twickenham.

World Rugby has confirmed that there was no citing arising from the match, clearing Farrell to prepare for the All Blacks' visit to Twickenham on Saturday.

England's Owen Farrell, left, tackles South Africa's Andre Esterhuizen near the end during the rugby union global between England and South Africa at Twickenham stadium in London.

One of the main talking points from the weekend's clash came late in the game when England's Owen Farrell somehow escaped any sanctions for a risky tackle on Springbok André Esterhuizen.

The Australian official decided Farrell's tackle was legal, however, to deny South Africa a kickable penalty that would have won the game.

South Africa head coach Rassie Erasmus' response to the Farrell incident was laced with sarcasm.

"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".

The song includes lyrics directed at President Trump with lines like, "How do you win if we all lose?" "Let me just say this". She expressed ire over it during her 2016 tour, telling the crowd of thousands: "It's Streisand, soft, like "sand".

"We were actually at the stadium so we weren't having scones or a cup of tea", he said. Like, I don't understand this, guys.

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. We're a bloody good team. You're going to do it at some stage.

'I just think the game is getting more intense.

Former Ireland captain Brian O'Driscoll said the referee got the decision "spot on" while former Australia lock Justin Harrison said "just because you don't wrap doesn't mean it's a shoulder charge, when laws of physics mean it's a bounce effect".

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

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!

"They play the game differently. It'll be a proper game of rugby".
