Erasmus’ Perfect Training Ground Response To Farrell Tackling Technique

'If that's the only way you can stop people and tackle like that, and it's in the rules, then we should tackle like that'.

After losing at Twickenham‚ the Boks are now under pressure to win at the Stade de France on Saturday and although Erasmus wants to grow his depth‚ his key objective now is winning.

Watson told Netwerk24 on Monday that Farrell's tackle "was dangerous".

"Angus Gardner is a world-class referee, who is rated by World Rugby".

South African coach Rassie Erasmus ironically taught his players the same tackling technique in training.

Head coach Rassie Erasmus was the first to raise that point at the post-match media conference in London.

Brian O'Driscoll tweeted: "Reckon the ref got that Farrell hit spot on!"

After arriving in Paris for Saturday's Test against France, the former Bok loose forward followed through on his promise to teach his players to tackle like Farrell.

De Allende was a bit more reserved and insisted he wasn't aware of a plan to specifically alter the way the Boks tackle.

"Obviously there was a lot of hype about the tackle".

"I think in those decision-making positions at No 9 and No 15 we did well", he said. It is what it is, that's World Rugby's problem. "There was nothing wrong with the tackle so we can also start doing that".

Erasmus was also pleased with the performance of 20-year-old Damian Willemse at fullback with Le Roux out.

"I'm not commenting on this", he said when asked again whether Erasmus faced punishment for his comments at Twickenham.
