More bitter-tweets from Sapolu

London - Samoan serial tweeter Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu is at it again in England, launching a threatening tirade on young Saracens star Owen Farrell after the latest round of club action.

According to the stuff.co.nz website, they come on the back of a controversial Rugby World Cup campaign by Fuimaono-Sapolu that saw him criticise Wales referee Nigel Owens and the International Rugby Board over what he claimed was a bias against Samoa. He received a six-month suspended sentence.

But on his return to action with Gloucester in their 19-17 loss to Saracens, Fuimaono-Sapolu let rip again via the social network.

He appeared to be angered by a perceived arrogance from Farrell who set up a late try to tie the match and then kicked the sideline conversion to win the game.

Here are Fuimano-Sapolu's post-match tweets:

"To young rugby players do not be arrogant. If you want to be tough on the field make sure you back it up off it. #farrell

"Love it when players talk big on the field in front of the camera. I like to see if they still talk big off the field when no cameras around.

"Raised in New Zealand and Samoa, I've never heard that s**t before ever. Good luck bro when you tour round my parts.

"What goes on the pitch stays on the pitch?? Don't use the pitch to showcase your FAKE toughness you pussy s**t."


London's Evening Standard newspaper reported the tweets were going to be investigated by England's national rugby union.

    A man with serious issues. He totally outplayed by Owen Farrell on Saturday. I don't think he's ever happy about anyting.
