Bath star James Wilson tweeted what all rugby fans were thinking during the FIFA World Cup action yesterday.
The New Zealander, who also had a five-year stint with Northampton Saints between 2012 and 2017, took to Twitter to share his feelings on the action.
I now remember why I don’t watch much football… these guys are softer than a sack of milk 🍼

He tweeted after one of the Tunisia players, during England’s 2-1 win last night, hit the deck wallowing in pain…after being hit by the ball.
And a lot of people agreed with him:
Agreed. So frustrating to watch. I’ve done my bit watched one game…#dontcarewhathappensnow

Not necessarily soft but they will do anything, including feigning death, to get a penalty or an opposition player sent off.
Rugby players’ cheating normally involves the ball, although amateur dramatics is slowly coming into the game (via Welford Road mainly…😊).

In general its the opposition that are big softies.

I’ve seen at least 3 twisted bootlaces. Agony.

It’s so frustrating man ain’t it! You just know they’re not hurt and you’re thinking, “just get up man and play!”
