Ellis Genge claims he was sent death threats from angry fans after tunnel incident
Ellis Genge has claimed that ‘keyboard warriors’ have sent him death threats in light of the Wales vs England Six Nations match this weekend.
England was soundly beaten by Wales in the Six Nations round 3 this weekend.
It marks two losses out of three games for the men in white in the 2021 Six Nations campaign. A moment in the tunnel after the game made many Welsh fans furious on social media.
Wales are now probably the favourites to win the competition after Saturday. They have won 3 games in a row now by daylight robbery.
Josh Adams and Corey Hill were the try-scoring heroes in the game.
The second try for the men in red was particularly controversial as many fans thought the ball came Forward off a Welsh player’s knee.
England now faces France in the next round of the competition, a game that they will go into as serious underdogs. Wales, on the other hand, enjoy a relatively easy game against the Italians in two weeks time.
England front row prop Ellis Genge angered many Welsh rugby fans in the match with some prickly moment in the game.
Ellis Genge is known for being an abrasive player in the sport.
Fans accused him of pushing a player down during a ruck in the game.
He had a dig at a Welsh player on the floor just before he was penalised which led to the last Welsh 3pts I believe. Looked like he shoved Dee’s face into the ground. Haven’t seen a replay though, only saw it in real time. Not a great bloke, by the look of it. – Haydn Davies
He is embarrassing…England have 6 or 7 props better than him as well. Attitude is everything…given an opportunity and he is abusing it – Alsy Pod
In the tunnel after the game, Ellis Genge appears to ignore the Welsh players coming through the tunnel after the game, showing some very poor sportsmanship.
Look at Elis Genge 🧂

In light of all of this, it looks like the Leicester Tigers prop has found himself on the end of some death threats from fans in the sport.
Ellis Genge posted about the threats this evening, encouraging the hater to ‘send me location’ harking back to Khabib in UFC.
Don’t know why I’m not clapping in that tunnel must be deep in thought, utmost respect for the Welsh 🌼 as for keyboard warriors sending death threats etc …. pic.twitter.com/qX49P570V2
