WATCH | Rassie Erasmus teaches the 'Owen Farrell' tackle
A video showing Springbok coach Rassie Erasmus teaching Andre Esterhuizen a 'new tackling' technique has gotten the thumbs up from fans.
The video is in response to England's Owen Farrell, who made a controversial tackle on Esterhuizen.
In the one-minute clip, Erasmus is seen instructing Esterhuizen to tackle higher, the same way Farrell did in the match between England and the Springboks.
England won 12-11.
Twitter, of course, was in full approval.
Did you see the video of Andre Esterhuizen be trained by Rassie how to hit like Farrel ? Hysterical 😂😂— Cornel de Jongh (@corneldejongh) November 7, 2018
Rassie Erasmus is taking this whole Owen Farrell-tackle to another level....I just saw visuals of Erasmus coaching Andre Esterhuizen how he should tackle ( going forward). When Esterhuizen does a “high/shoulder”- tackle on the tacklebag Rassie claps his hands. #Classic #rugby— Percivale Young (@Percyoung) November 6, 2018
