Ellis Genge gives one of the best post match interviews that we’ve seen
Ellis Genge saved England from a second loss in the Six Nations today and he gave a brilliant post-match interview directly after the match.
The English prop came up in front of the media after he scored the all-important try for England.
Beer in hand, the Leicester prop spoke about the ‘sausages’ that were asking Eddie Jones to be sacked last week. Genge was clearly not in any mood to play ball with Sonja Mcglaghan who is clearly a bit Scottish fan, sorry but it’s true.
Genge was refreshingly honest in this interview as he spoke about how he had enough of the scrutiny that his team gave, and we loved how refreshing that he was.
Ellis Genge post match interview … classic… what you see is what you get. Straight talking, honest, no frills and an unfiltered view on the game, the critics, the team and its leadership. And some humility shown by Eddie Jones too…

Ellis Genge spoke about how the team went away to Scotland and got the win and how they shut up the media. We love this and it’s great to see the England players fighting back against the scrutiny that they have received in the media.
Here’s a section of the interview, brilliant to see!!

England are now back on to win the Championship after getting through arguably their toughest away match of the tournament. England now have a two week break now before they have Wales and Ireland at HQ, which they will surely go into as slight favourites.
Genge surely should be starting for England now?
England head coach Eddie Jones rang the changes following his side’s demoralising loss to France in their tournament opener and it paid off as they emerged 13-6 winners at Murrayfield against Scotland.
It was certainly a match for the purists, as driving rain and blustery gales forced both teams into an attritional battle of set-pieces and kicking games, with opportunities for ball-carriers to impress few and far between.
