Dylan Hartley gets a nibble on his arm from Pedrie Wanneburg

Dylan Hartley gets a nibble on his arm from Pedrie Wanneburg

Northampton Saints overcame a determined Ulster side with a 23-13 Heineken Cup quarter final victory in Milton Keynes yesterday. This clip shows one of the talking points from the game.

It was a fascinating tussle throughout and while Ulster had a great chance to equalise late in the game, a dropped ball with the try line begging meant that Saints held on to grind out the win.

Captain Dylan Hartley praised his troops. "I'm so proud of the lads because we kept up that tempo until they cracked - only they didn't crack, which made it such a compelling battle."

Hartley himself grabbed the attention of the viewers when he was heard swearing towards referee Romain Poite, claiming he had been bitten. Replays showed that he quite probably was, by Pedrie Wanneburg, who had to deal with Hartley's forearm around the face.

When asked about it, Hartley said "I can't remember - I think I got sun stroke."

He was then told he was heard on the referee's microphone. "Really? That will teach me for trying to pull people out of rucks by the head. That is justice," he said, referring to the bite.
