Farrell will be free to play next weekend against the All Blacks, despite the controversial tackle which led with the shoulder and appeared to have minimal or late arm-wrapping. Angus Gardner decided there was ‘enough arms in the tackle’ to avoid issuing a penalty, which ended the game as the final play.
World Rugby Citing Commissioner, Keith Brown, decided the incident did not warrant a red card, leading to no further action.
Courtney Lawes has returned from a back injury to join the squad while centre Joe Marchant has also been called up in the 35-man squad to take on the All Blacks.
