Former Professional Referee Has His Say On That Owen Farrell Tackle

0:59                                            He's behind you! Pieter Steph du Toit won't let Youngs bamboozle him again

Owen Farrell is free to direct England's challenge against New Zealand after escaping any disciplinary action for his controversial tackle against South Africa.

"Not only is Steve Hansen's side massively more experienced, it arrives with another Southern Hemisphere Rugby Championship under its belt", he said.

England takes on New Zealand for the first time since 2014 next weekend and Farrell's availability will be a critical one for the English.

"If you add to the mix the elusive brilliance of Beauden Barrett and Ben Smith, as well as the finishing prowess of Rieko Ioane, there is an argument to be made that, for once, England would do better not to turn up".

Jones also pointed to his win ratio as a former Wallaby coach of 42 per cent against them, as well as the insider knowledge that former All Black player and head coach John Mitchell brings in his new capacity as England defence coach.

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 have to deliver a game for-the-ages, and by definition those do not come around very often". We lost a few games but we played tough today and we won.

South Africa went back in front through Pollard 12 minutes from the end, but he failed to repeat the feat after Farrell's last penalty kick.

"The most important thing is what we do next", Jones answered. We're a bloody good team. You go to a sandwich shop and they tell you how they're going to beat you.

"It's hard to wrap your arms around when you're both hitting each other at that much force, but I tried to". Because you guys (the media) want to sack me, is that why? If I stay long enough, you're going to get me sacked, so you'll be happy.

The Autumn Internationals citing commissioner had until 5pm local Sunday to cite Farrell and World Rugby confirmed on Sunday evening that no citations had been issued from the weekend's Tests.

Jones said, "We're not the Springboks".
