England flanker Tom Curry has been called out by French side Racing 92 following his nation’s Rugby World Cup quarter-final win over Fiji at the weekend.
Curry hit Fiji’s Josua Tuisova with a dangerous no-arms tackle early on in the first half and while he was penalised after the TMO had a look, he escaped any card sanction.
Tuisova however, was not so lucky, picking up an injury that looks set to keep him sidelined for some time.
And his new club Racing 92 are not happy, throwing shade at Curry in a statement released.
“During the England – Fiji match counting for the 3rd quarter-final of the 2023 Rugby World Cup, last Sunday, October 15, the Fijian centre of Racing 92 Josua Tuisova suffered a violent tackle without the arms of the English player no7 thus injuring his left knee,” the statement read.
“The player will consult specialist opinions in the coming days to determine the duration of his unavailability.
“Racing 92 wishes Josua Tuisova a speedy recovery and shows him all its support during this period.”
We wish Josua all the best in his recovery.
