Rugby Fans Fuming After This Petty “Irish Barbarians” Tweet By South African Journalist


Rugby fans are fuming after this petty tweet by South African rugby journalist Brenden Nel, in which he labels Ireland as the “Irish Barbarians” due to their selection of CJ Stander and Bundee Aki in their team.

The Springboks were soundly beaten yesterday evening by Ireland in all aspects of the game, and while Nel openly admits this, for him to label Ireland as a ‘Barbarian’ team is hugely insulting and quite frankly petty.

The reaction online, understandably, has not been good for Nel.
