Owen Farrell probably wished the ground would open up under him after this howler

Saracens maintained their 100% record in this season’s Champions Cup despite a second-half howler from England international Owen Farrell.

Farrell dropped the ball over the line while attempting to touch down for Saracens’ second score and it almost came back to haunt the visitors as Toulouse scored two late tries.

He redeemed himself after scoring two late penalties to end Toulouse’s unbeaten record at home this season.

Luckily for him, the scores confirmed the Aviva Premiership side as 28-17 winners.
