Tackle like Farrell? Rassie makes his point

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.

Fortunately for Farrell, match referee Angus Gardner chose to take no further action and deemed the hard-hitting tackle fair, much to anger from the South African contingent.

Having already given an answer dripping with sarcasm in the wake of the controversial Owen Farrell tackle on André Esterhuizen on Saturday, where he said that he will just have to coach the Boks to tackle like that if it was deemed to be acceptable, Erasmus took it one step further on Monday.

Erasmus suggested at the Springboks' post-match press conference that his team would start tackling opponents in a similar manner if it were legal to do so.

We will never forget the disco lights and colour-coded boards at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein when Erasmus was in charge of the Cheetahs.

Erasmus, whose side face France in Paris this weekend, consequently headed out to the training ground and, conscious the cameras were on him, took Esterhuizen to one side to show him how to tackle just like Farrell.

"It's good to welcome Faf‚ Willie‚ Cheslin and the others back into the squad‚" said Erasmus.

On the final attempt, Erasmus instructs Esterhuizen to tuck his arm and lead with the shoulder, clapping after he hits the tackle bag high.
