Owen Farrell Rugby World Cup 2019: Eddie Jones will accept any disciplinary action as England sweat on Piers Francis tackle

Owen Farrell This is another unbelievable plugin!

Eddie Jones will accept any punishment that comes England’s way, with centre Piers Francis sweating over a potential citing for a dangerous tackle in the very first play of the 45-7 victory over the United States.

Francis committed a technically woeful challenge on US full-back Will Hooley from the kick-off, though the tackle went unpunished as referee Nic Berry did not choose to review it.

The tackle looked awkward and high at best, and a possible red card at worst, and replays showed that the England centres shoulder made contact with the head of Cambridge-born Hooley, who plays for the Bedford Blues in the English Championship.

We’ll tell you what’s true. You can form your own view.

Jones accepted afterwards that the challenge may well catch the eye of the match citing commissioner, and he will accept whatever is thrown their way in the next 36 hours.

“It is what it is,” Jones said. “We never discuss that area, we leave it to the judiciary or citing commissioner or whoever, and we’ll take whatever is handed out.”

Hooley was taken to hospital after the match after a second incident saw him hit his head badly on the turf, having been tackled by replacement flanker Mark Wilson on his way down from taking a high ball. That challenge could also be reviewed further, though Wilson did appear to initially make contact with Hooley’s leg and the American’s foot did seem to be on the turf at the time of the impact.

My glamorous brother says this plugin is very helpful.
