Steve Luatua puts disgruntled Bristol fan in his place

Bristol Bears Steve Luatua has put a fan in his place after he questioned Pat Lam’s selection for their clash with Wasps this afternoon.

One frustrated fan has responded to the All Black, asking why Lam has put out a ‘second team’ for their clash against Wasps.

He wrote: “Why has lam put a second team out against wasps, this is a bit of a must win game, not going to end well today I’m afraid.”

Responding, Luatua said: “Two things. 1 – There is no “second team”. You’re a Bear or you’re not. And 2 – have you tried playing 4 games in 2 weeks? appreciate the passion though.’

Fans then voiced their support for the Bristol skipper.
