Eddie Jones Turns On English Media Desperate 'For Him To Be Sacked'

Eddie Jones Turns On English Media Desperate 'For Him To Be Sacked'”

Meanwhile England coach Eddie Jones was in sarcastic mood when asked during his post-match press conference about the possibility of being without Farrell for the November 10 clash against the All Blacks at Twickenham.

England will be relieved to have available a player described by Eddie Jones as the team's "spiritual leader", but the incident has polarised opinion as the sport continues to tie itself in knots over its crackdown on risky tackles.

Cape Town - Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus has called for consistency in decisions when it comes to risky play following Owen Farrell's controversial tackle in the Springboks 12-11 loss to England on Saturday.

"It was the final play of the game and Gardner may have been looking for any reason not to give a penalty that, had South Africa kicked it, would have won them the game".

"The most important thing is what we do next", Jones answered.

England were again grateful for another stray delivery from Marx, but it was only a matter of time before the visitors regained the lead and it was Nkosi who scored the opening try in the corner after more excellent work from the dominant Springboks forwards.

However, former Ireland back Luke Fitzgerald, who was forced to retire at 28 with a neck injury, said that under the new interpretation of the tackle law it should have been a "minimum of a penalty.shocking adjudicating" while Sunday Times journalist Stephen Jones described the decision as ludicrous.

Pollard had a chance to win it from the tee in a tense finale, but the fly-half was unable to edge South Africa back in front.

England were without injured forwards, Billy and Mako Vunipola, Chris Robshaw and Joe Launchbury as well as the suspended Nathan Hughes.

"Farrell led with his right shoulder and his left arm belatedly came up".

The Springboks suffered a setback when lock Eben Etzebeth limped off early in the second half.

On the hour mark, Farrell just fell short with a penalty and minutes later Pollard made it 11-9 to the Springboks.

England face New Zealand at Twickenham next weekend, when South Africa play France in Paris.
