RugbyU: Farrell absolved of blame for ticket sale

English rugby chiefs said Thursday that no action would be taken against Owen Farrell after a Test match ticket allocated to the fly-half ended up being sold for more than six times its face value. The £70 ($116, 85 euros) ticket for the 13-10 Six Nations win against Ireland at Twickenham on Saturday sold for £440 the evening before the match on re-sale website Viagogo. However, a spokesman for England's governing Rugby Football Union said no blame was attached to the 22-year-old Farrell.
