Video: England Rugby Star Dylan Hartley Terrifies Team-Mates With Snakes Prank

England hooker Dylan Hartley just won a serious amount of respect in our eyes after pulling off this brilliant prank on his international team-mates.

The English are preparing to take on Australia in the first of three test matches on Saturday, and it appears squad captain Hartley has taken it upon himself to make sure all of the players are alert ahead of the ties.

When you’re locked away in a team hotel without friends or family for weeks at a time, the presence of a prankster like Hartley can either be a godsend or absolutely brutal, depending on your opinion.

On this occasion, if you’re not a fan of snakes, you’ll probably be siding with the latter.

The mere sight of a pretend snake almost sent poor Jack Nowell into a cardiac arrest:

To be fair, we’d be pretty terrified too, but you can’t deny it’s funny to watch.

He’s lucky he didn’t cause an injury!
