Bristol Bears moved four points clear at the top of the Gallagher Premiership yesterday evening after a 20-7 win over top of the table rivals Exeter Chiefs, but one of the big talking points of the game was the language that came from English and Lions Tight-head prop Kyle Sinckler. Rugby is all about respect to the referee and it’s surprising that the ref didn’t send Sinckler to the bin for his foul mouth. See the video here;

The English man showed his class though and issued an apology to the referee on his twitter post match. Sport is all out passion and trying to get the win and passion can get the better of at sometimes.
Want to apologise for my reaction today. Not the example I want to be setting. Heat of the moment stuff. Will make a conscious effort to improve. My bad 👊

Isn’t it great that they mic the refs in rugby though, so the game can continue to encourage respect for the man in the middle. Wouldn’t it be great to see that brought in to football?
