ENGLAND rugby star Lewis Ludlam has been forced to apologise to a waitress after a club teammate allegedly flashed during a boozy night out.
Ludlam, 26, who became Northampton Saints’ captain this year, was present when Sam Matavesi dropped his trousers in front of restaurant customers, witnesses claim.
One told The Sun on Sunday: “The players were all drunk. The player in question stood up, took his jeans down with everything hanging and the waitress was just horrified.
“Then he was bantering her, indo, ‘Do you wanna see, do you wanna see?’.
“The captain — who was standing next to him — didn’t do anything. They all just stood bantering and laughing.”
Cornish-born hooker Matavesi, 30, a Royal Navy Able Rate, represents Fiji on the international stage.

It is understood the owners of the trendy Smoke Pit restaurant in Northampton contacted the rugby club’s CEO Mark Darbon, who set up an internal disciplinary process.
Several players — including flanker Ludlam and Matavesi — have since apologised to the waitress and the restaurant bosses.
The club, which plays in Rugby Union’s Premiership, said the restaurant and staff member involved “confirmed that they were happy with the swift and pro-active action taken by the club via its disciplinary process”.
Ludlam did not play in England’s Six Nations clash with France last night due to injury.
