Jamie Roberts And James Haskell Give Classy Response To Horror-Tackle

Jamie Roberts And James Haskell Give Classy Response To Horror-Tackle

James Haskell didn't win himself many friends tonight for what was a sickeningly high-tackle on former Welsh centre, Jamie Roberts.

The England and Wasps flanker hit the Harlequins man with the game very much in the balance, and Roberts' side looking for a necessary win to extend their Champions Cup hopes.

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 more to boot, hasn't lost his sense of humour.

This came after Haskell himself had issued an apology via his Twitter account.

Regarding the response of Haskell initially, a large swell of support came for his immediate attempt to right any wrong that he had done to a fellow player.

For Dr. Roberts however, there was an outpouring of well-wishes for the manner in which he had dealt with an unbelievable hard hit.
