England’s Francis cited for dangerous tackle

2 min read

England core Piers Francis has been cited for a dangerous tackle on Will Hooley in his side’s 45-7 feat over a United States in a Rugby World Cup compare on Thursday.

Francis was not authorised during a Pool C compare in Kobe and was cited by World Rugby after a diversion that also had U.S. flanker John Quill sent off for a shoulder assign on England’s Owen Farrell.

Francis is a fifth actor to face a law this week for dangerous tackles after World Rugby criticized a referees for craziness around their judgements in progressing games.

The diversion also saw a initial red label handed out during a 2019 World Cup with U.S. flanker John Quill sent off for a intolerable shoulder assign to a control of deputy centre Owen Farrell, who was a sitting steep after knocking on.

Former England manager Clive Woodward slammed Quill’s strike and also took aim during Samoans Ray Ley Lo and Motu Matu’u, who were cited for argumentative tackles opposite Russia.

“The nauseous conflict on Owen Farrell by John Quill late in a second half is because we have red cards and a deliberate, targeted high shots by a Samoans Ray Ley Lo and Motu Matu’u opposite Russia are because we boot a ashamed players from a margin of play and anathema them,” he wrote in his mainstay for a Daily Mail.

“They are a deliberate, callous, bootleg hurdles that a diversion contingency exterminate and contingency always be punished with an involuntary red and a anathema so they see a blunder of their ways.”

Rey had an initial six-game anathema reduced to 3 for his good record and control during a conference while Matu’u has nonetheless to hear a outcome of his disciplinary review.

England’s Farrell, who finished a diversion opposite a Americans notwithstanding a Quill hit, came divided with a low indenture in his nose from an progressing tackle.

And while manager Eddie Jones joked that partial of Farrell’s nose had been found on a field, conflict manager Scott Wisemantel downplayed a damage to a England skipper.

“He’s fine, he still has his looks,” he said.
