Foster and Gale exchange in Twitter war

Last night was a good one for Luke Gale.

Not only did Castleford win, but the Albert Goldthorpe Medal winner put in a stunning display, most notably kicking an audacious drop goal from considerable distance to put Castleford ahead.


However, it didn’t stop one former teammate poking some fun at him. Jamie Foster, the current Huddersfield Giants winger, took to Twitter to joke about Gale’s current choice of hairstyle.

This, obviously, caused plenty of Castleford fans to stick up for their star man. However, Gale hit back himself with a bold tweet of his own that sent Rugby League’s Twitter community into overdrive.

And just as Twitter loves to do, it saw one tweet escalate into a whole lot more, with players past and present chiming in.

It’s probably fair to say that Foster, who played with Gale at Bradford when the Bulls were relegated from Super League, saw his tweet backfire a little bit. But not to be denied, he ensured that, for now, he got the final parting blow.

Twitter, how did we ever live without you?!
