Raw footage has emerged of the scrap between Wales captain Alun Wyn Jones and Jake Ball during a training session in this year’s Six Nations.
The video shows both locks square up to each other before Ball throws the first blow to the face of Jones which sparks handbags.
Hooker Ken Owens tries to get in the middle of the 6ft 5” locks but the pair were able to throw several right handed hooks at each other before being pulled apart by their teammates.
Ball appears to have seven swings at the skipper while Jones manages about four having taken the first blow.
