Owen Farrell is free to lead England's assault on New Zealand after escaping any disciplinary action for his controversial tackle against South Africa.

England ended a five-match winless streak with victory over South Africa in the third June Test in Cape Town and have now won two straight games ahead of the visit of world champions New Zealand to Twickenham next Saturday.

Trailing by a point with the clock ticking over 80 minutes, the Springboks launched one last attack which was only stopped by a crunching tackle by Farrell on Esterhuizen that resulted in an England turn-over.

The individual added to Gardner's entry by stating he was named Man-of-the-Match for "turning a blind eye to Owen Farrell's last-minute shoulder charge on Andre Esterhuizen".

Meanwhile, South Africa head coach Rassie Erasmus showed his bemusement at the judgment of referee Angus Gardner and TMO Olly Hodges.

'So you'll probably find people that are close to those players and family that might support it, then you'd have others with a different view on players jumping into a national team from another country so quickly.

"The most important thing is what we do next", Jones answered.


When asked if he had wrapped enough arm around Esterhuizen, Farrell added: "That's what the referee said and that's what is most important".

In what will be their first game in nearly three months, Namibia even have the chance to beat the All Blacks to the new mark, as they play a few hours prior, but the world No 22 should face a fairly stiff task, away to No 19-ranked Russian Federation in Krasnodar.

"I think everyone's been looking forward to the game". Because you guys want to sack me, is that why?

"You're going to do it at some stage, you know that".

However, the former Australia and Japan coach was concerned by yet another match where England conceded a raft of penalties, with lock Maro Itoje sin-binned in the first half.

New Zealand have a 91% winning record in Tests since the 2015 World Cup but Jones said the squad are "excited about playing the best team in the world".

"They play the game differently".
