A pulsating encounter between Lyon and Saracens has not been without incident, and a large brawl broke out after Saracens felt Farrell was hit late after a kick.
The London based team started the game on fire, playing some brilliant rugby. However, Lyon clawed their way back into the match and scored a try in the first minutes of the second half which put them ahead.
However, Saracens were furious that the try was allowed, adamant that Farrell had been tackled late in the build up to the score.
Ever the character, the Sarries fly half then seemed to sarcastically pat his opponent on the head which then sparked the scuffle between the two sets of players.
Should this have stood? 🤔
Saracens aren't happy with what they feel was a late hit, but the referee awards the try for Lyon.#HeinekenChampionsCup pic.twitter.com/OJvlGkzPGR
