    Kicking goals was never the issue for him as I recall. Flakiness and poor temperament let him down.

    Good to see a New Plymouth lad go OK.

    https://twitter.com/i/status/1302231977987313664 A lot of hysteria on this, It's high tackle. he gets sent off, end of story.
    Personal opinion, he gets it wrong going for the big hit and pays the consequences.
    I don't see a swing arm, it's an attempt to wrap.
    The ball carrier slightly goes low as he steps and if he hadn't the tackle might have been under the arm pit and we would have been raving about a big hit.

    Does anyone have any clips of Farrell going low in a tackle? He runs too many risks with his upright style.
    He trudg’d along unknowing what he sought,
    And whistled as he went, for want of thought.

    Long overdue... His dangerous tackling style has been well known for years, and he has gotten away with tackles that other players might have been carded for.

    Nothing seems to have been done to coach him out of it, so it was only a matter of time before he copped the big one.

    My guess would be 2 to 4 weeks.

    I think the last couple of years (since that hit at the end of ENG-SA) he's been doing a lot better at keeping low and wrapping. In the RWC he was on the receiving end of two RC high tackles.

    That's a clear red, not clearly cynical (although I don't have the context of the game), I agree with Phil's estimate.

    my prediction is 2 weeks.

    his history of poor tackle technique was pre-RWC, it's not been a recent problem and he is highly respected, and remorseful

    6 weeks? Assuming that he gets some kind of dis punt for remorse, pleading guilty and not eating the biscuits, you have a starting point of 9 to 10 weeks, which strikes me as a lot.

    As much I think Farrell is a snidey little ****, Phil’s about right.

    on the bright side ... at least he's started using his arms in tackles
