Andy Goode publicly criticised his Wasps team-mate Christian Wade on Thursday after the young winger's no-show at a charity event.
Wade was supposed to attend a charity dinner for Matt Hampson, the former England U21 international who suffered a life-changing injury over ten years ago when he dislocated his neck and severed his spinal cord during a training session.
Goode, who is leaving Wasps at the end of the season to join London Irish, didn't hold back in his criticism of his young team-mate on Twitter for failing to attend.
"Bad values from @ChristianWade3 agreeing to come to a charity event for @Hambofoundation then saying he's too tired, poor culture & no trust," tweeted Goode.
Goode's comments drew a mixed reaction from other users on the social network, with some commending him while others suggested that giving Wade such a public dressing down wasn't the best way to address the situation.
Hampson's work with the Hambo Foundation has been a huge success in recent years, with top Premiership players including Manu Tuilagi, Danny Cipriani and Mark Cueto all in attendance on Wednesday.
