James Haskell Went Full Troll On Ex-England Teammate Lewis Moody & It Was Hilarious

When the British and Irish Lions headed to New Zealand last summer, fans were eager to see just how well the best from the northern hemisphere would compare with the world champions.

On the field the Lions grew into a side that fought to a stalemate with their hosts and off it, fans watched them come together as friends.

Among the most famous of these friendships was that of back-rows James Haskell and Sean O’Brien, who enjoyed a bromance rooted in mischievous mayhem.

Throughout the tour, we were treated to the informal goings-on in the Lions camp thanks to the pair of flankers and it became one of the highlights of what was a famous tour.

Despite a return to normality and the rigours of the domestic game, Englishman Haskell took to Twitter on Wednesday and reminded everyone of the wit that contributed to those amusing summer interludes.

With retired England and Bath flanker Lewis Moody appearing on the latest podcast from Flats&Shanks, the Wasps flanker just couldn’t help himself when the public was asked, via Twitter, for questions to ask the World Cup winner.

Going full troll, you might be forgiven for thinking that Haskell’s comments lay far below the belt. Having been international teammates, however, their common bond born from the physicality and camaraderie of rugby allows friends insult each other like enemies.

For the rest of us, the results are bemusing, yet utterly hilarious.
