SHOTS FIRED: Rugby versus American Football
SPOTLIGHT: American football player Marquette King has sparked controversy after claiming he would “dominate” rugby if he played the sport.
The 31-year-old punter made this bold claim on Twitter and famous rugby players around the world have reacted in hilarious fashion.
Simon Zebo, Jerome Kaino and Carl Fearns gave their verdict among an array of fans who mocked the former Oakland Raiders player for his claim.
While the All Blacks invited the NFL star to join a training session.
If I played rugby I would dominate it easily.
