England prop Ellis Genge has come out swinging on Twitter after a number of users had a go at him following his post-match interview for the BBC.
The try-scorer referred to England’s critics as ‘sausages’ and says Eddie Jones’s team have have shut them up after their 13-6 victory against Scotland at Murrayfield.
Some fans though weren’t keen on the widely-enjoyed interview with some calling him a ‘council estate chav’, questioning his professionalism or criticising his haircut.
But Genge responded with class.
Good win for the boys, on the way back to my council estate to see my illiterate friends who all talk like zombies and are all terrible role models for kids. pic.twitter.com/yAg4C5OVhl— Gengey (@EllisGenge) February 8, 2020
