‘I Don’t Know What’s Happened Rugby. It’s Become A Bit Of A Pathetic Sport…’

James Haskell went nuclear after a decision went against Wasps in his last home game for the club. 

Wasps beat the Northampton Saints by a scoreline of 36-29 on Sunday but there was a decision in the dying moments that left James Haskell livid after the game.

Speaking to BT Sport, the 33-year-old who will be leaving Wasps this summer stated that he is fading out of the game at the right time because rugby has become a ‘bit of a pathetic sport’ of late.

‘I’m pretty emotional about that last penalty. I don’t know what’s happened rugby. It sounds like I’m fading out at the right time because it’s becoming a bit of a pathetic sport at the moment I think.’

Haskell came off the bench for the clash that secured Wasps a top-four finish and a place in the semi-final against the Newcastle Falcons next Saturday. However, the England international was still left fuming after the game after a late try was disallowed due to a Haskell tackle which the referee deemed to be high.

Check out the 33-year-old’s scathing assessment of the ruling and the incident in question in the tweets below.
