The two best friends.
Joe Marler and James Haskell had a bit of an altercation today during the Harlequins versus Wasps Premiership clash at the Ricoh Arena.
Harlequins prop Marler pissed Haskell off by grabbing him by the scrum-cap midway through the second-half and a heated scuffle broke out between the England teammates.

Marler further infuriated Haskell by spraying water in his face soon after, and the back-row completely lost it, grabbing the loosehead by the neck, before being broken up by a number of players.
Haskell was yellow carded, and to make matters worse his side ended up losing the game. But we can all rejoice as the Lions teammates made up soon after the final whistle. Handbags eh?
Friends in the end. 👊
