Ellis Genge’s priceless reaction to being kissed by Luke Cowan-Dickie goes viral

Ellis Genge certainly didn’t look happy at full-time following Bristol Bears 50-14 defeat to Exeter Chiefs in the Gallagher Premiership on Friday night.

The prop was approached by England teammate Luke Cowan-Dickie, who scored a try for the Chiefs on the night, with Genge’s face like thunder when he tried to kiss him.

Genge was arguably lucky to be on the pitch after an ugly clear-out on Jonny Gray was adjudged as just a yellow card on the night.

One fan wrote: “I cannot understand how Genge hasn’t seen red there. “No high level of danger” are you serious? He’s absolutely flown into that ruck and smashed a player in the head. The TMO also with the “yes mate” should be embarrassed too.”

“Absolute joke shop how Bristol have avoided a Red (Genge),” added a second.

A third commented: “Genge just escaped a red card for a cheap and dirty clear out on Gray at that ruck. Officials ruled ‘low force’ for a shoulder direct to the head after running in at full speed. Terrible clear out. Awful decision.”

“I have no idea how Genge has avoided a red card for that clear out,” commented another.
