Video: Owen Farrell red carded for a dangerous tackle

Owen Farrell is now in doubt for Saracens' Champions Cup quarter-final against Leinster in two weekends’ time.

The England flyhalf was shown a red card for a high tackle in Saturday’s Premiership defeat to Wasps.


 

Farrell was sent off for a dangerous tackle on Wasps’ Charlie Atkinson as he hit the Wasps' man high around the head in a dangerous fashion, with referee Christophe Ridley having a very straightforward decision to show him red.

Saracens went on to lose 28-18 with Atkinson being forced off the pitch due to the head injury.


Farrell will face the usual disciplinary hearing and could face a suspension of more than two weeks. Saracens are due to face Leinster at the Aviva Stadium in their Champions Cup quarter-final on Saturday 19 September.
