Andy Robinson slams Joe Marler over THIS injurious challenge on Gavin Henson

Bristol headcoach Andy Robinson has hit out at Harlequins and England prop Joe Marler over a challenge that has left Gavin Henson out of the game for three matches on the trot.

"And it just shows you – people look at the incident and go 'that was pretty innocuous'. 

"Well, actually, that incident – when he didn't have the ball, hit by a player who didn't have the ball – has cost us three matches without one of our better players, and a player who was playing well. 

"We can deal with those incidents, but it can be pretty hurtful to a team. You can accept if he had the ball, but it's harder to accept when contact is made with a player in the way that it was."
