Mike Tindall had almost 50 lagers on Australia flight in bid to break record

Mike Tindall came agonisingly close to former Australian cricketer David Boon’s record of 54 cans of lager on a flight between Australia and England, it was revealed back in 2003.

The former England centre, who is back down under for 2022 I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here, reportedly consumed “close to 50” cans as the victorious England side returned to the UK.

Will Greenwood confirmed that his midfield partner had fallen short of the record despite a valiant effort.

He said: “You can rest assured David Boon’s record is still standing,” he said.

“Tinds had a real go at it but we wanted to leave the Aussies with at least one title to hang on to.”

The Mirror also said Tindall returned with the best anecdote after the 2003 tournament.

“When asked what was going through his mind when he swept Aussie captain George Gregan off his feat, he said: ‘I just thought, He’s not very heavy. Where should I put him?'”

Jason Leonard’s Drinking XV | Legend picks his top boozers

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