Itoje, 23, instantly let referee Jaco Peyper know and approached the official on the subsequent break in play.

The alleged offender can also be understood to have been recognized by England lawyer Richard Smith, who raised the biting grievance with match citing commissioner Murray Whyte.

No charges have been brought, in accordance to The Occasions.

It’s believed there was not sufficient proof for Whyte to deliver charges.

Broadcast footage don’t give a transparent view of any chew occurring, though different photographs have been out there to Whyte.

Itoje had lunged his left arm in the direction of the ball within the maul when a France participant allegedly took a chew of his arm.

However as they have been sporting a mouth guard over their prime tooth, solely a single puncture mark may be seen on the lock's bicep.

England coach Eddie Jones refused to touch upon the alleged incident.

He stated: "If there are any untoward actions within the recreation, whether or not the citing commissioner or one of many groups sees it, then it’s up to him [Whyte] to deal with it.

"We’ve obtained somebody who appears at that for us and went to see the citing commissioner and he’ll deal with it. I’m not right here to speak about biting."
