Fans are worried about James Haskell after bizarre new video stunt
Fans have responded with bemusement and confusion after the latest video stunt from former England international James Haskell.
This new clip surfaced online today with the popular sports personality and it’s got fans talking. Has he completely lost the plot here?
The footage starts with the Wasps flanker gearing up in full England kit to the background melody of God Saves the Queen.
He then starts to reel off as many ‘Hask’isms’ as possible – starting off with searching through his phone to land on Owen ‘best friend’ Farrell. Blimey, this is good stuff.
Haskell yesterday posted this teaser before today’s announcement

The scene then quickly cuts to Hask in his kitchen before receiving a call from ‘Payno’ who is calling to get the podcast gang together.
Haskell agrees and breaks off into a cringe-inducing fit of rage as he rips off his England shirt before the video breaks off into another training montage.
This announcement comes as the formerly known, House of Rugby, trio of Alex Payne, James Haskell and Mike Tindall reunite under a new name – ‘The Good, The Bad and The Rugby’.
