Erasmus proved that he is a man of his word as video footage from Springbok training shows the former Munster coach teaching one of his players the same technique that Owen Farrell used against Esterhuizen. The infamous tackle has the world of rugby divided.

There was a dramatic incident at the end of last weekend's Test between England and South Africa at Twickenham when Australian referee Angus Gardner opted not to award the Springboks a penalty after it appeared as though England flyhalf Farrell had executed a unsafe no-arms tackle on Bok replacement Andre Esterhuizen.

Australian referee Angus Gardner was fine with the tackle and blew the final whistle for a 12-11 defeat for the Boks. "So we'll just have to try and practice that".

"'We should start tackling like that and execute it like that", Erasmus said.
