Ben Earl’s first red card gets Owen Farrell seal of approval

Brave England ace and Saracens flanker Ben Earl received the first red card of his career for a high tackle on Tom Pearson last night in Brentford and it’s very Owen Farrell.

He basically did an ‘Owen Farrell’ on Pearson, leaning in with his shoulder with his arm tucked into his chest when he did.

The one mitigation was that was it happened nearly on the deck, so it’s a bit of a stretch to call it a high tackle.

As a back-rower, Ben Earl has consistently proven himself to be a formidable force on the pitch. His performances last season earned him the title of Gallagher Premiership Player of the Season, and in recent times, he has cemented his reputation as one of the best back-rowers in the league. With 13 England caps under his belt and approaching a century of appearances for Saracens, Earl has become a key player for the team, alongside the likes of Billy Vunipola and Theo McFarland.

At just 24 years old, Earl’s performance level shows no signs of slowing down. One of his standout moments came during the Premiership Semi-Final, where his hat-trick helped secure Saracens’ place in the final at Twickenham. Earl is thrilled to have committed his future to the club, stating, “Saracens is the club I call home and I’m delighted to have extended my contract here. We have a massively exciting journey ahead over the coming years and I’m determined to play my part in making sure we achieve our goals.”

Director of Rugby Mark McCall is equally pleased to have Earl as a key member of the squad. “Ben is an important and popular member of our squad who is well respected by everyone at the training ground,” said McCall. “His performances over the last few seasons have been consistently strong, but his game has gone to a different level at the start of this campaign. We are obviously delighted that he will be extending his time at the club.”
