Controversial Samoan centre Eliota Fuimaono-Sapolu has launched his latest Twitter tirade.

Fuimaono-Sapolu gained notoriety during the recently completed World Cup for his criticism of Welsh referee Nigel Owens and the International Rugby Board on the social network, which saw him receive a six-month suspended sentence.

On his return to action for English club Gloucester against Saracens at the weekend, the serial tweeter targeted Saracens youngster Owen Farrell, who had set up a try and kicked the match-winning touchline conversion.

Following the narrow loss, Fuimaono-Sapolu tweeted:

"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."

Fuimaono-Sapolu’s latest outbursts will reportedly be investigated by the Rugby Football Union.
