Tyrone Mings was clearly ecstatic after receiving a signed Lions shirt from Anthony Watson; so much so that he posted a picture of it on his official Twitter page accompanied by a message thanking Watson for the shirt.

In a touching message to the Bournemouth full back, Watson wrote 'Ty, Keep hustling brother, be persistent. Your [sic] the man bro.'

However, the post presented a golden opportunity for a number of Watson's teammates to heckle him for his mistakes.

First to respond was fellow Lions star Jack Nowell, who took his chance to pick up on an obvious grammatical error made by his teammate.

The Exeter Chiefs winger was clearly unimpressed with his teammate's grammar, as he trolled Watson for writing 'your' instead of the grammatically correct 'you're or 'you are'.

In response, Watson defended the mistake as he claimed he was rushed.

But this did not stop more of Watson's teammates from weighing in, with Ugo Monye questioning what the acronym 'YBR' stood for.

Fellow Lions star Kyle Sinckler also could not help himself from getting involved, as he posted a couple of 'crying with laughter emoji's'.

Although Watson quickly replied to Nowell defending himself, he has not yet replied to Monye's question.

After a number of his teammates weighed in trolling him for the message, the 23-year-old winger would probably have wished he had taken some time to choose his words more carefully.

Nevertheless, it was a kind gesture from Watson, and it is one that Mings greatly appreciated as he proudly showed off his prized possession to his Twitter followers.
