Now, punditry is definitely more difficult than it looks. Many fans sit at home and think they could do better because it’s just talking about your favourite sport right? Well, James Haskell may have delivered some of the world’s worst lines of punditry ever seen, reflecting on England’s surprising 12-11 win over South Africa.

I’d love to be able to tell you exactly what the Northampton Saints and England forward said, but I am not 100% sure myself. It went something like: “I think you’ll have a sing-song, it’s important to celebrate a victory, whether it was the prettiest thing in the world, I think you’ve got to get round ea errrr ready to regruooo next week.”

Many viewers believed Haskell could have been drunk after the game at Twickenham, but the England international has flat out denied this claim and said there was a problem with the audio:

"To clear up the fact that post-game today there was a technical issue with the audio on Sky and I was in no way drunk or p*ssed in any way, shape or form.”

"It sounded like I had about 50 whiskeys but that was not true."

It potentially would have made for a more exciting story had he actually been drunk, but Haskell appears to have got away with it on this particular occasion.

Drunk or not, this certainly makes for a great clip which you can see below, we have also included Haskell’s video which he posted himself on Twitter. Enjoy!
