Jack Nowell receives back lash after ill thought message on social media

England star Jack Nowell is under fire after a tweet he made last night about Coronavirus. The winger has fans questioning why did it.

The England star wrote a message on his Twitter account which many have called “ill thought” and dangerous.

The tweet was in relation to the government pausing plans to bring back crowds into stadiums in England by October.

The original plan was to look to bring fans back into stadiums by October with crowds being able to enjoy their teams in the Six Nations and new Autumn nations cup.

Recently Danny Care spoke out against the new measures the government made, calling it “ridiculous”.

Similarly his Harlequins teammate Mike Brown called out the plans to pause this, citing that fact that the practice runs for the tournament had been a success.

Premiership clubs have been struggling to cope with the financial impact of COVID-19 with clubs such as Exeter reporting millions in losses every month.

The clubs in England and Wales were bolstered by the possibility of crowds returning before Christmas, however now it looks there may not be crowds now before March.

Jack Nowell suggested instead…

How about this? ‘open sports stadiums to whoever wants to go and watch, if you don’t, stay at home’

Nowell’s desire for fans to be more proactive wasn’t received very well by all of his fans.

We aren’t sure how pleased his sponsors would be about his ill-thought tweet.
