James Haskell didn’t do his chances of an England recall any favours after his sickeningly high-tackle on former Welsh centre, Jamie Roberts.
Shown a straight red for his atrocious effort, there was naturally a lot of concern extended for Roberts as he lay prostrated on the pitch after the collision.
Thankfully, it would appear that the highly-popular Roberts is fine and he hasn’t lost his sense of humour.
Whats done is done, but just want to publicly apologise to @Jamiehuwroberts. Never my intention to hurt another player. Got my height wrong, paid the price, which happens. You know me, never one to do anything subtly. Credit to @Harlequins and apologies to @WaspsRugby fans
