Josh Hodgson’s interview with Daily Telegraph, in which the hooker launched a staunch defence of George Williams, caused quite a stir.
In it, Hodgson was quoted as saying, “he busts his arse every day for us and when you see all these things about him f***ing turning his back on his team and all that, it f***ing hurts.
“It’s like watching your mate getting kicked in the street and just standing by watching. I feel like you’ve got to say something to tell people what a good lad he is.”
The backlash received has also been huge, but Hodgson took to Instagram to explain his decision in giving the interview.
