Social media storm as Luke Cowan-Dickie included in first Lions test in South Africa

There was outrage and concern on social media in recent hours after it was announced that the England prop, Luke Cowan-Dickie, was named to play in the Lions 22 man squad to face the Emirates Lions today.

The 28-year-old flew out to South Africa just days after featuring in Exeter Chiefs shock loss to Harlequins in the Premiership final at Twickenham.

A social media post by former England scrum-half Kyran Bracken has had fans up in arms about the prospect of the Chiefs man playing today in Johannesburg.

Bracken’s post highlighted the fact that Luke Cowan-Dickie had sustained a serious concussion in the final against Harlequins just a week ago.

This was the incident in question.

Bracken’s original post questioned the ‘ridiculous’ decision to allow Cowan-Dickie to fly to South Africa so soon after picking up a traumatic brain injury.

His post read…

What do you think? Should Luke Cowan-Dickie have been allowed to travel to South Africa this week?
