Ben Youngs fires back at Wallaby Matt Toomua

England scrum-half Ben Youngs returned serve to ex-Leicester teammate Matt To’omua after the Wallaby had said Youngs was not even the best player in his family.

“He was very happy with himself because he sent me the video clip,” Youngs told media today.

“He’s not far wrong with some of it, Fordy has never bought him a beer because he’s usually smoke-bombed by that point or he’s too drunk and left the building.”

“I thought it was quite ironic, he knows what it’s like to play second fiddle, especially being married to Ellyse Perry (an dual Australian football and cricket international), so I feel for him, he knows my pain.”


Yesterday, To’omua had joked about Young and four other former Leicester teammates who are representing England at the World Cup.

“Manu (Tuilagi) is a terrible snooker player, George Ford never pays for a beer, Ben Youngs isn’t even the best rugby player in his family, let alone the country. The chicken, Jonny May, very weird and Dan Cole doesn’t have a personality.”
