AUDIO: French audio picks up the full, shocking exchange between Farrell and Gauzere
Freshly released audio from France has revealed the full, shocking extent of the exchange between brave England captain Owen Farrell and hard-headed referee Pascal Gauzere following the super-controversial Josh Adams try during last weekend’s Six Nations.
17 minutes in – at Dan Biggar’s suggestion – Gauzere let the game play on, despite directing Farrell to address his terribly behaved England players, who were seemingly hell-bent on infringing as many of rugby’s Laws as possible in the first quarter.
Although some of the audio was released in the UK, the French have now released the full audio track and it’s disturbing in the extreme.
Listen closely to the audio here, which is really quite alarming. You may need to sit yourself down listening to this. We have a new found respect for Owen Farrell, that’s for sure.
This will no doubt change how this incident is viewed forever.
