Farrell is currently running at a tackle completion level of ~33%.
he runs a pretty low percentage with Sarries too. With the it's a tactic, the FH rushes up to the outside shoulder of his opposite number to try to turn him back towards the forwards or force a mistake.
It doesn't work from 12.
I'm increasingly of the opinion that this tactic from Sarries is them making a virtue of the player's flaw, as in, they couldn't stop Faz rushing out of the line, so they shape up to assume it'll happen anyway, and then encourage it to happen (I don't recall them ever using Charlie in this role). For England, it mostly leaves a dog-leg in the defence.
He's getting better at not doing it, just like he's getting better at running lines that should be second nature to an IC; but it's still indiscipline totally at odds to the media hype.
