England co-captain Owen Farrell has not been cited over his controversial tackle that helped England narrowly beat South Africa Saturday, World Rugby has confirmed.

Schonert played for England in their non-cap match against the Barbarians at Twickenham at the end of last season having missed out on the tour of Argentina in the summer of 2017 because of a hand injury.

Tom Curry has been ruled out of Saturday's Test against New Zealand and the remainder of England's autumn internationals with a "serious" ankle injury.

The clock had ticked past the 80-minute mark at Twickenham with England desperately trying to keep the Springboks at bay when Farrell smashed into replacement Andre Esterhuizen, knocking him back and dislodging the ball.

"What we've got to do is make sure we play like England, do everything we can to maximise our game, look at areas where New Zealand are weak and see if we can find a way to expose those weaknesses", he told BBC Sport.

'We should start tackling like that and execute it like that.

Elliot Daly landed England's other penalty from 50 metres, something he has consistently done for club side Wasps as Eddie Jones' men claimed back-to-back wins against the Springboks.

"I just think the game is getting more intense".

"We are asking one referee to do it the way they did it when blokes like me were playing - jogging round the field basically".

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

However, former Ireland back Luke Fitzgerald, who was forced to retire at 28 with a neck injury, said that under the new interpretation of the tackle law it should have been a "minimum of a penalty.shocking adjudicating" while Sunday Times journalist Stephen Jones described the decision as ludicrous.
