Owen 'Shoulder Boy' Farrell gets new nickname in must see parody video

Owen 'Shoulder Boy' Farrell gets new nickname in must see parody video

After yet another controversial shoulder charge, Owen Farrell has become the focal point of numerous discussions regarding the legality of certain tackles. One Twitter user has taken the comedic approach and produced this parody video, poking fun at the seemingly invincible way he wields his shoulders.

Farrell is a world-class player but is certainly not without his detractors. The Autumn internationals gave the haters plenty of fuel as two controversial calls involving the use of his shoulders went his way.

The first came in the closing stages against South Africa that went penalty-free. The second came in the first half against Australia and had Wallaby supporters and Michael Cheika screaming for a penalty try.

Now comes content creator Graham Love with this parody video crowning Farrell with the new nickname “Shoulder Boy”, a reference taken from Soulja Boy’s 2007 hit, Crank That. Enjoy.

    I'm all for this sort off thing, but 2 hits doesn't merit a compilation.At least look for some of his other shoulder hits.Poor effort.

        I feel bad for the guy, such a chip on his shoulder. He's a League back rower masquerading as a Union fly half. He even uses hair gel. Coming from a rugby league family... he might as well be a winger in pink boots.  Still, it is the most secure the 10/12 channel has been since the days of Wilkinson and Tindall. I'm all for it. Legally or otherwise, he is single handedly turning the tables on late half-back hits. Any back rowers getting upset about being smashed by a 10 should immediately have their Deep-Heat spray + roll of electrical tape revoked.
