Today the NFL star, who is currently rehabbing from an injury, was forced to make a dramatic U-Turn on his original claim after it became apparent that he landed himself in hot water.
Fans made the effort to go onto all platforms of social media to comment, “You wouldn’t stand a chance in rugby.”
The original message was met by floods of players and fans listing the players that would destroy him in a game. The names that were mentioned included Nadolo, Tuilagi and Etzebeth…
King today posted on his social media making out that he had a lot of respect for rugby.
Marquette is currently in rehab from an injury in the NFL. He has shared his recovery journey on social media so fans can take the journey with him through every stage of the process.
After doing some research on the NFL player, it is apparent that is actually a very genuine human being, who loves to troll the masses. We can’t think of anyone that we know that loves doing that too.
