A pitch invader was wrestled to the ground by security after joining the England line-up for their Six Nations clash with Ireland.
The fan somehow managed to evade the Twickenham security and make his way next to Eddie Jones’ men as the national anthem was being blared out.
But just seconds after making it next to Tom Curry, he found himself wrestling with burly security on the pitch.
The brazen fan – who was dressed in a full kit – was quickly taken off the pitch.
And it’s likely he was detained before being handed over the police present at the match.
Watchers of the game couldn’t quite believe their eyes, with one saying: “Great tackle! Was that the tv guy’s assistant?”
Another said: “Good to see that attention-seeking pitch invader get absolutely walloped.”
And another said: “We all saw the pitch invader getting flattened by security beside Tom Curry, right??!
One remarked: “He got creamed.
“If you look at the English team, they can see them looking at him getting wiped out.”

England made a nightmare start as Charlie Ewels was sent off 82 seconds into the match for a reckless challenge on James Ryan.
His dismissal was the fastest in Six Nations history.
The Red Rose battled valiantly and were even level at 15-15 with about 20 minutes to play.
But the home side ran out of steam and the Irish picked apart tired legs to eventually run out 32-15 winners.
