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.

There was then four successive games with six tries scored - against Australia in Sydney and Auckland, against Argentina in Nelson, and against South Africa in Wellington, despite the latter seeing them on the wrong end of the scoreline.

Farrell is free to play for England against New Zealand next Saturday at Twickenham.

The hot topic since the completion of the match against has been around the Owen Farrell tackle on Andre Esterhuizen.

"You can get cited for something you did at a party when you were 15, anything could happen".

"We were actually at the stadium so we weren't having scones or a cup of tea", he said.

"I've got no idea what can happen".

The Democratic Party of Georgia called the allegation "100 percent false" and "an abuse of power" by Kemp's office. In 2016, he said a DHS computer made an unsuccessful attempt to breach the firewall guarding Georgia's voter data.

When asked if he had wrapped enough arm around Esterhuizen, Farrell added: "That's what the referee said and that's what is most important".

"I don't understand this guys". We've lost a few games, we played tough and we won. As you know he injured his ankle.

"Why is it always the most important game?"

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 a shoulder charge, when laws of physics mean it's a bounce effect".

Erasmus proved that he is a man of his word as video footage from Springbok training shows the former Munster coach teaching one of his players the same technique that Owen Farrell used against Esterhuizen.

"I reckon we just need consistency, I think it's pretty inconsistent at times", he said.
