WATCH as Wasps and England flank James Haskell is red-carded for a horrific high tackle on former Wales centre, Jamie Roberts, in their clash with Harlequins at the Stoop on Saturday.

Haskell is now in danger of missing the start of England's Six Nations title defence.

Haskell was shown a red card by referee Roman Poite in the 75th minute for a shoulder-led high tackle on Roberts and in his absence, James Chisholm crossed for the try that settled a remarkable clash at Twickenham Stoop.

Cruising to a bonus point victory, Wasps were leading 28-12 with 20 minutes remaining. Yet, two tries in five minutes for Quins' set it up for a nervy finish for their counterparts who still needed a victory to keep their European Champions Cup ambitions afloat.

With five minutes remaining and deep in their own half, Quins' looked to move the ball out wide and counter-attack, but in their process of moving the ball through the hands, Haskell lined up Roberts for a big hit, carelessly and recklessly smashing Roberts in the neck and head. It made for extremely grim viewing.
