She captioned the shot: “So @danosborneofficial took this photo of me and I was certain I was going to look like a full on Instagram model in my cute dungarees on the beach.
“FUMING!! Look at me BUT still I look at this with fond memories of playing football on a beach with my hubby, racing and just being so silly. I can’t help but smile.”Fair to say I will never be that girl.”

The rugby star wrote: “You look like you are waiting for the sunshine bus and if anyone touches your football you will go mad.”
‘Sunshine bus’ is a term sometimes used in society to describe transport used by the mentally disabled, and so it didn’t go down with many of Jacqueline’s followers.
One wrote underneath: “Let’s hope you never have children with special needs!”

“As a parent of a child with a disability these types of comments are often said to mock a person’s disability and are hugely offensive, experience first hand the struggles and pain of a disabled person or be a family member who hears comments relating to a person they love it’s heartbreaking.
“So I will happily be on the pc brigade, defending my child and others with disability.”
A third shared: “Wow James, excelled yourself here, this certainly isn’t ‘banter central’ and no I’m not a snowflake, just think this is a horrible comment.”
