“Is he okay?” – Fans worried about Jason Leonard’s health following latest post

A number of fans were worried about Jason Leonard following his latest post, but it turns out the legendary England prop just has incredible-sized manhood.

He wrote on Twitter: “Wonderful day in Dublin supporting legendary Lions kit man Rala at his fundraising event for @terenurerugby with Joe Schmidt, Tommy Bowe and Alan Quinlan . It’s definitely Guinness or us all today rather than Rala’s usual cup of tea & biscuits!

Social reaction:

One fan wrote: “Had to pop on his wiki, check if someone had noted an illness, but there was nothing.”

A second said: “Jase, have you nicked a souvenir ball and stuffed it down your jeans?”

Another commented: “Armchair doctor here, looks like an inguinal hernia.”

A fourth wrote: “Imagine being his lock and having to reach around those things.”

Another user pointed out that Leonard has looked like this for years as this image in a Harlequins kit shows.

Jason Leonard selects drinking XV to empty the pubs in Twickenham:

England and Lions legend Jason Leonard has selected his drinking XV of players from down the years that he’d want with him for long sessions and it’s brilliant.

If anybody can save the pubs post-lockdown, it would be this group of beer-swigging individuals, although he did make sure to sensibly pick a designated driver.

Leonard’s career spanned the amateur and professional eras, and he was successful in both. It is a testament to his skill and commitment that he was able to adapt so easily to the changing rugby environment.
