Eddie Jones was looking on with a worried face as James Haskell’s first involvement kept him on the floor.
But his girlfriend Chloe Madley didn’t seem quite as worried, matching Haskell’s (the Archbishop of Banterbury Unofficial) quirky sense of humour with her banterous recreation of the flankers 35-second knockout.
Haskell got his head the wrong side of tackling Freddie Burns and although he drove the Leicester man backwards, he stayed down on the ground after the tackle was made.

Wasps director of rugby Dai Young joked about Haskell’s “outstanding” contribution after he lasted just 35 seconds on his return from injury.
“The most important thing is that he is fine,” said Young after the match.
Speaking to BBC Coventry & Warwickshire, he added: “He would have obviously have wanted a lot more, but thankfully he is OK.
“Everybody was concerned initially but once they seen he was OK, he is getting a little bit of stick in the dressing room.
“It was an outstanding 35 seconds, wasn’t it?”
