It’s Wales vs England as Andy Powell challenges retiring international to a fight for charity

first_imgFriday May 24, 2019 It’s Wales vs England as Andy Powell challenges retiring international to a fight for charity Former Wales international Andy Powell has taken to Twitter to challenge retiring England international James Haskell to a charity boxing match.ADVERTISEMENTThe former number eight challenged Haskell to the match at Gloucester’s Kingsholm Stadium in six month’s time, with the aim to “raise lots of money for some charities”.Powell was known throughout his career as an enforcer on the field, who would never shy away from confrontation. The personality he had on the pitch may lend itself to a boxing ring, and could make this very entertaining.Meanwhile, fellow back-row Haskell, who has already played his last game of professional rugby for the Northampton Saints, does not seem like one to turn down a match up like this.Both players were British and Irish Lions tourists, Powell in 2009 and Haskell in 2017, and would line up against one another fairly evenly. Standing at 6ft 6, Powell would have a two inch height advantage, but Haskell would probably be the heavier of the two.WATCH: Andy Powell’s huge hit on Duane Vermeulen This would be a chance for both players to renew one of rugby’s oldest rivalries, Wales vs England, and has already got some of their former teammates excited.ADVERTISEMENTPowell and Haskell are two of the biggest characters the game has had in recent years, and this would surely attract a lot of attention from English and Welsh fans.Haskell, who has spoken about MMA training in the past, unleashed a few punches against the Cheetahs when he played in Super Rugby in 2012. If the charity fight goes ahead, he’ll no doubt be constantly referencing this video in the build up.ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.
