Written by Alex Elbourne on October 19, 2023
Josua Tuisova’s French club Racing 92 pulled no punches when they slammed England’s openside flanker Tom Curry for his dangerous tackle on the blockbusting inside centre in their quarterfinal game on Monday. They revealed that Tuisova is now injured which they suggest is a result of the Curry tackle.
The club issued a statement to confirm Tuisova’s injury, which included a passive-aggressive swipe at Curry.
“During the England – Fiji match counting for the 3rd quarter-final of the 2023 Rugby World Cup, last Sunday, October 15, the Fijian centre of Racing 92 Josua TUISOVA suffered a violent tackle without the arms of the English player no7 thus injuring his left knee,” the statement read.
“The player will consult specialist opinions in the coming days to determine the duration of his unavailability.
“Racing 92 wishes Josua TUISOVA a speedy recovery and shows him all its support during this period.”
The incident was penalised but no yellow card was issued for Tim Curry, which has angered Fijian and Racing 92 fans.
