Rassie Erasmus shows Esterhuizen how to implement new tackling strategy

"We just have to latch on that if it is legal".

The match-defining moment has many wondering about the interpretations of the law.

The video is proving popular on social media after the controversial finish to the Test match between England and South Africa at Twickenham on Saturday, when Australia referee Angus Gardner failed to penalise Owen Farrell for tackling Esterhuizen in the 84th minute without appearing to use his arms.

We will never forget the disco lights and colour-coded boards at Free State Stadium in Bloemfontein when Erasmus was in charge of the Cheetahs. "To tackle a guy like Andre Esterhuizen like that and stop him in his tracks, that's unbelievable, so we'll have to try and practice that".

"It's good to welcome Faf, Willie, Cheslin and the others back into the squad", South Africa's Director of Rugby and head coach said Rassie Erasmus said in a press release.

Also in the House, Democrats Ilhan Omar of Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib of MI will be the first Muslim women to serve in Congress. The win was momentous for a number of reasons, not just that Democrats can now challenge Trump and the Republican party agenda.


"World Rugby always sets standards and as the Springboks we always make sure we keep up with and follow those standards", said Stick.

However, this week at a training session in Paris, Erasmus was filmed showing Esterhuizen how he should do the Farrell tackle.

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

Given Esterhuizen was on the receiving end of Farrell's big last-play hit, the video, while clever and amusing, is a clear shot at World Rugby's inconsistencies and lack transparency over what is acceptable and what is not.

Many similar instances, though, have resulted in penalties and cards.
