Most incriminating Farrell video released days before he got England captaincy

Whether people like it or not, Owen Farrell will be available for England for the beginning of the Six Nations after serving his ban. And whether people like it or not, he will be England’s captain.

The Saracens No10 missed the first match of his three week ban (reduced because of tackle school) on Saturday against Lyon, and his next two against Edinburgh and Bristol Bears will complete the ban.

That means he will be available to play against Scotland at Twickenham in round one, and the rugby world waits to see what miracles have been produced at tackle school.

There seems to be as many people defending Farrell at the moment as there are people criticising him. Yes, his tackle against Gloucester was red card worthy, but plenty say that he is not a serial offender. There are also those that disagree strongly.

AnalystGus has compiled a collection of some of Farrell’s worse tackles throughout his career, and while there are of course hundreds of legal tackles he has made, there does some to be a theme.
