England are bonding during their World Cup training camp by watching Love Island.
Tom Curry, England’s likely first choice openside for the global showpiece, has revealed that Love Island has emerged as an unlikely topic of conversation among players.
Tom Curry is in England’s World Cup training squad and revealed Love Island is a favourite
‘In the first week we played dodgeball and in the second week we were with the RAF and did some stuff with the lifeguard. We’ve been going out for coffees as well,’ Curry said.
‘But there’s also been a lot of Love Island. We’ve been watching it together as a team and everyone is pretty keen on it.
‘When we’ve been together on Sundays at camps over the last two weeks we’ve thought ‘why not?’.
‘It’s a good way to get together with the new lads coming into camp for that week. It’s been pretty funny!
‘The eager Love Island fans in the squad talk about it, but I just think it’s funny to watch. I was more keen on it last year.’
Curry is the same age as contestant Tommy Fury – but is jealous of his facial hair
One of the Love Island contestants is heavyweight boxer Tyson Fury’s younger brother Tommy, who has won both of his professional fights as a light-heavyweight.
The Manchester-based Tommy Fury is a year younger than 21-year-old Curry, who plays for Sale Sharks.
‘It’s unbelievable that Tommy Fury and I are a similar age – I wish I had facial hair like that. I’ve only got a few sprouts coming through!’ Curry said.
