Former England flanker and Channel 4 pundit James Haskell has responded to criticism from controversial rugby commentator’ Brian Moore.
The former England hooker, who went viral for all the wrong reason with a Bulimia joke a few weeks ago, had blasted Haskell’s punditry on Saturday.
In a now deleted tweet, Haskell responded with zero filter.
“Brian stop talking shit for 5 mins. You are like a really annoying elderly relative,” wrote Haskell, who has previously had run ins with the likes of Neil Back on social media.
“Some players are fannys and don’t like to defend. They get found out. Eddie now has a team of die hard defenders. Attack is easy, smoking people not so much. Understand now?”
