Unimpressed Vunipola loses patience with ‘cheating’ Cheslin Kolbe

Angry Lions prop Mako Vunipola picked up Springboks star Cheslin Kolbe like a rag doll in Cape Town on Saturday.

The Springbok speedster, who has been dubbed the Lionel Messi of rugby in recent weeks, landed heavily after competing in the air with Ali Price midway through the second half.

He lay on the floor covering his face in pain, appearing to milk the situation for a potential penalty.

This appeared to irritate Vunipola as the replacement came over to Kolbe and lifted the 74kg winger straight back to his feet and stripped the ball.
