‘I’m not trying to be a pr**k but I don’t want you to say that’ – Tigers captain unhappy with questions after loss

Leicester captain Ellis Genge was furious after his side’s 14-23 defeat by Leinster in the Heineken Champions Cup quarter-finals when the England international took offense at a specific issue.

When Genge was asked how difficult it was to play against a Leinster side stacked with 13 top-flight Ireland internationals, Genge was far from impressed.

The Tigers narrowly passed Leinster as they still have a way to go before they can expect to fight for European honors again, but Genge didn’t see it exactly that way.

“Look mate, I’m not trying to be a pr**k here but I don’t want you to say that,” the prop master said when asked about the challenge, against an Ireland-laden Leinster team to compete

“We got out of there fighting as hard as we could. They’ve got 13 caps, but don’t count us in the ‘we did well’ category.

“We could have won the game. I think you know that too. If anyone is going to say that to me, please don’t, because it’s going to drive me nuts.

“Our boys fought the whole game so I’m not going to come here for anyone to say we did well and we’re brave losers. I don’t have pop but I’m just saying please don’t say that to me.

Genge, who is leaving Leicester for Bristol at the end of the season, was later asked if being 20-0 down at half-time was a reality check on the rebuild required, and he snapped:

‘Pack it up. Don’t start with that. It’s not a real question. It’s not a rebuilding trip. We went out in the second half and won 14-3. You talk like we’ve been blown away.”
