Manu Tuilagi apologises for 'bunny ears' prank on prime minister

Manu Tuilagi apologises for 'bunny ears' prank on prime minister

British & Irish Lions and England centre Manu Tuilagi has apologised for making ‘bunny ears’ behind the back of David Cameron on Monday. The triumphant Lions squad were hosted by the Prime Minister to celebrate their 2-1 series victory in Australia. 

As the squad asembled for a group photograph, Tuilagi ended up near Mr Cameron, and couldn’t help himself. He later apologised for the gesture on Twitter, saying he was just messing around. 

Tuilagi, who was described on Sky News this morning as ‘not having a filter’, was famously selected on the bench ahead of Brian O’Driscoll in the final, and deciding Test of the series. 

Former England scrumhalf Matt Dawson wasn’t impressed with Tuilagi. “My view on Tuilagi/PM. I’m utterly embarrassed. When will some learn, there’s a time and a place,”  he Tweeted.

The powerful Samoan is still just 22-years-old, perhaps hard to believe after all he has already achieved for Leicester Tigers, England and now the Lions.

Earlier Cameron had praised the work that the Lions have done for the growth of the game in both the UK and Ireland, and said that his son just started playing tag rugby, mainly due to their success.

“It’s a huge honour. My son, just because of you guys, has just started tag rugby. He will be so excited about this jersey,” he said after being presented with a number ten Lions jersey.

He also took a bit of a swing at Rugby League, saying “I want to see many more people playing Rugby… even Rugby League if they have to.”

It was the first time the squad had been together since arriving back in July.
