WATCH: Owen Farrell tackle saga continues as DAMNING video compilation emerges
Owen Farrell’s tackle technique has been under the spotlight again after his hit on Jack Clement and subsequent suspension, and now a complication of his illegal hits has been shared on Twitter.
Farrell will be available for the start of England’s Six Nations campaign if he completes the World Rugby coaching intervention programme, now dubbed tackle school.
10 times Farrell’s tackle technique let him down
While Farrell has been red-carded once in his career and cited twice, the England and Saracens playmaker has seemingly escaped punishment for several illegal tackles in his career.
The clip includes Farrell’s infamous tackle on Andre Esterhuizen in 2018, which was judged not to be an illegal hit, ultimately securing the 12-11 win for the Red Rose.
Also included is the tackle he made on Charlie Atkinson, which he got sent off for, and a hit on Izack Rodda in 2018, which wasn’t punished.
There are also examples of when his tackle technique saw him come off second best, with Ellis Genge running over Farrell in one case.
Rugby analyst @AnalystGus on Twitter shared a clip highlighting ten tackles from Farrell over his career, with a brilliant soundtrack.
The following caption accompanied the video: ‘I have heard a lot of people saying Owen Farrell is “NOT a serial offender” So here is a video of his tackle “Technique” with the appropriate soundtrack.’

The video concludes with the tag ‘Goodluck at tackle school Owen.’
It isn’t the first time Farrell has been the subject of a negative social media video.
In 2019, a video titled ‘Owen Farrell – Anti Tribute’ went viral, garnering over 1 million views on YouTube.
The video, which is over nine minutes long, features his brawls, mistakes, tackles and much more.
He has also been the subject of a ‘Rugby’s Biggest Thugs’ complication by a popular YouTube channel by Andrew Forde.
