Owen Farrell: Saracens fly-half escapes citing for high tackle
Saracens fly-half Owen Farrell has escaped a citing for his high tackle on Bath full-back Anthony Watson during Saturday's Aviva Premiership final.
The Rugby Football Union [RFU] has instead issued a disciplinary warning over the second-minute tackle in Sarries' 28-16 victory at Twickenham.
Farrell later apologised for the challenge on his England team-mate.
The decision means Farrell, 23, is free to play in England's three World Cup warm-up matches in August.
England head coach Stuart Lancaster said: "It is a big relief. I thought Owen was excellent on Saturday and I'm relieved he's not got any disciplinary action - I've had enough of those I can assure you."
Farrell was named man of the match and contributed 18 points to Saracens' victory over Bath.
