England were fortunate to only be 8-6 down at the break after taking a battering from the South Africa forwards, Farrell on target with two penalties after Maro Itoje was sin-binned.

Jones said: "You can get cited for something you did at a party when you were 15, anything could happen".

Farrell avoiding a citing means England's star playmaker is free to face the All Blacks at Twickenham on Saturday (Sunday NZ time) but his hit on Esterhuizen was the major talking point of an otherwise uneventful test.

There was more drama with the clock red when Farrell clattered into Andre Esterhuizen with what could have been deemed to be a high tackle, but referee Angus Gardner saw nothing untoward after taking another look and England were able to celebrate a battling victory.

"I've got no idea what can happen", the Australian added.

World Rugby said there were no citings arising from the test following reviews, or from the Wales-Scotland and Ireland-Italy matches on Saturday.

He said: "We know they're going to have an ideal preparation for the game; they'll be up for the game".

"I just think the game is getting more intense". Because you want to sack me? If I stay long enough, you're going to get me sacked.

He said: "To beat the New Zealanders you've got to be unbelievably disciplined".

England have not played reigning world champions New Zealand since 2014 and next week's showdown has been eagerly anticipated ahead of next year's World Cup in Japan. It was a good Test match game of rugby today.
