England may also find themselves in hot water with the Rugby World Cup judiciary despite the United States having a player sent off in their game overnight.
Former Blues utility back Piers Francis is likely to come under the spotlight for a first-minute tackle in England’s 45-7 win in Kobe, which saw the US end with 14 players after flanker John Quill was red-carded for a high shot with his shoulder on star England back Owen Farrell.
England coach Eddie Jones says Owen Farrell’s nose “was found on the field” after high hit against USA.
Francis hit USA fullback Will Hooley in a tackle following the kick-off that seemed to show on slow-motion replay that the England player’s shoulder directly struck Hooley’s jaw.
However, referee Nick Berry chose not to review the tackle and Francis went unpunished.
USA flanker John Quill sent off for a ‘cheap shot’ on England’s Owen Farrell during ill-tempered match.
