Lions star reveals exactly why he grabbed an All Black’s testicles

During the first Test, Mako Vunipola faced split-second second decision that could have had disastrous consequences for his opponent, Owen Franks.

“I can’t remember doing that to be fair. But I’ve seen the video because my family tagged me in it!” He said.

“I was just trying to keep my bind up obviously. We talk about giving good pictures to the referee as a front-row.

“So either I bind there or drop my arm and it’s a penalty to them.


“So I’d rather grab them than grab nothing really!”

Fortunately for Franks, there was no lasting damage and he’s fit to take the field in the second Test this weekend.
