Rugby fans are outraged at what England have done with their silver medals since losing final
This is not a good look for England, after comprehensively losing to the Springboks in the final of the World Cup the men in white have done this, and rugby fans aren’t happy with what they’ve done with their medals since then.
South Africa won their third Webb Ellis Cup (following 1995 and 2007), joining New Zealand on a record three World Cups.
The Springboks became the first team to lift the Webb Ellis Cup despite suffering defeat at some point in their campaign. The 2019 Boks lost their opener against the All Blacks.
South Africa put in a monumental performance to beat England, but it was the England team receiving the medals that has caused such a fuss.
From watching the replay, it appeared that almost EVERY SINGLE PLAYER apart from Manu Tuilagi did not wear their medal after the loss.
Maro Itoje even refused to let Bill Beaumont put it over his neck!
Fans online have been furious about this saying…
Ffion“im sorry but what!? taking the silver medals off right after recieving them. thats next level disrespect. new zealand were more than happy to recieve bronze but england throw a tantrum and refuse to wear a second place medal due to the fact that they didnt win and didnt get to lift the trophey? pathetic. some teams went away from the tournament with nothing, give your medals to wales or austrailia, they would be much more grateful. england beat the all blacks and came so far and theres no pride in that? shame.”
