Eddie Jones defends Owen Farrell's approach


Cape Town – England trainer Eddie Jones defended the star playmaker Owen
over his controversial technique of approach after victory over
Australia Saturday.

Wallabies think they should have been assigned a
punishment for Farrell's attempt to save trials on Izack Rodda, where England
Number Ten seemed to lead with his shoulder and not wrap his arms around him

It was similar to that of the British co-captain
Center Springbok Andre Esterhuizen in the opening November international that
also remained unpunished.

But Jones sustained his talisman after describing Cheika
the decision not to penalize Farrell as "absurd".

"The Referee said he was fine. When he said he was not
well, we'll have a chat about it, "Jones told Sky Sports.

"When you hit people hard, you are in danger.
And it hurts people hard. I like people hard to hit.

"There is a trial area all the time. Obviously, we
want to be within the laws. Owen does not try to cope with the laws
he will continue to work on this. "

Another England player who caught the eye this month had
was Joe Cokanasiga, who scored the second attempt for his country just in his place
the second appearance during the victory over the Wallabies.

Meanwhile, Jones sang Joe's comparisons
Cokanasiga until the end of Jonah Lomu after the Bath wing came in centimeters by
recording a fantastic solo effort at Twickenham.

"Lomu won almost a World Cup for New Zealand. When Joe
almost wins a World Cup for us, then you can start talking about Lomu.

"I took a pony on Joe to come and he did
exceptionally. The big thing now is how hard he works on his game.

– He has to go back to Bath's club and work hard
must be absolutely brilliant to the basics. If he does, he has a
the chance to see its thriving career, but like any young player you need
of orientation. "
