England got their autumn series off to a winning start at Twickenham with a hard-fought 12-11 victory over South Africa, but the main talking point was Farrell's "no-arms" tackle on Esterhuizen in the dying seconds of the game.

The clock had ticked past the 80-minute mark at Twickenham with England desperately trying to keep the Springboks at bay when Farrell smashed into replacement Andre Esterhuizen, knocking him back and dislodging the ball.

South Africa were well on top, but Malcolm Marx let England off the hook with a poor throw from a line-out and Farrell levelled expertly from the tee against the run of play before Itoje returned to the fray.

The individual added to Gardner's entry by stating he was named Man-of-the-Match for "turning a blind eye to Owen Farrell's last-minute shoulder charge on Andre Esterhuizen".

South Africa coach Rassie Erasmus opted to go down the sarcasm route when asked for his opinion.

"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".

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

In what will be their first game in nearly three months, Namibia even have the chance to beat the All Blacks to the new mark, as they play a few hours prior, but the world No 22 should face a fairly stiff task, away to No 19-ranked Russian Federation in Krasnodar.

"I just think the game is getting more intense". As you know he injured his ankle. If I stay long enough, you're going to get me sacked.

Jones hinted at frustration with the penalties conceded, though, and Maro Itoje was sin-binned early on.

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 want the game to be an athletic contest".

All Australia's Super Rugby teams all have reasonably regular visits from referees but that is rarer when it comes to Test teams.
