Leicester Tigers Update: Twitter Ban for players

More and more sports appear to be banning their players from using social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook these days. Leicester Tigers players are the latest to be facing a Twitter ban, after Jordan Crane took to Twitter to update his followers on his ankle injury.

According to a recent article at by Rob Wildman, Leicester’s head coach Richard Cockerill has now banned his players from using the popular micro-blogging website and has told Crane, that he will break both of his ankles the next time he decides to tweet.

It all started when Crane feared that he had injured his ankle badly during last Friday’s friendly game against Munster. He took to Twitter and tweeted: “Ankle bad again. It’s a dark day and it’s going to be three long months.” However, his comments appeared to anger Cockerill.

Cockerill claimed that he was awaiting the scan results, and was hoping that Crane’s ankle was not as badly injured as he first feared. Speaking about the ban, Cockerill said: None of our players will be tweeting or Facebooking anything about Leicester ever again.”
