    Default How Long will He Likely be Banned for?

    Saracens vs Wasps.

    Owen Farrell

    Saracens only hopes of any glory this season is the Heineken Cup and with the quarter finals in 2 weeks, is he likely to be banned for longer than that?

    Presumably some mitigation from his instant remorse and previous good conduct?

    Have only seen a couple of seconds of a clip.
    What "instant remorse" did he show?

    Hands straight up, he knew instantly it had gone wrong and he was in trouble, and he waited at the touch line for the oppo to come off and apologise / shake hands

    Might be the cynic in me but "immediate remorse" is parcticed. Tackles like that need to be eradicated. England will not suffer from a ban this autum but I suspect it will be too short to send the right message.

    Does Owen Farrell have a good record?

    I don't follow English rugby as much as I should, but the first thing that I think about when I hear the name Owen Farrell is high tackles and shoulder charges.

    As an aside, I see Gopperth kicked a lot of goals in that game.

    How is he going up north? He never really made it down here, but with experience he might have improved a bit.

    That was his first red card.
    He has had 8 yellow cards in 297 games over 12 seasons, I am not sure how many of those were for foul play.
    So yes he is of previous good character.

    Gopperth seems to go quite well. Solid 10 who kicks his goals.
