A popular Sunday “newspaper”, The Weekend Entrapment has revealed that several All Black forwards may be involved in a betting scandel that could ROCK the rugby world’s foundations and leave them crashing down onto their heads.
It is claimed that through a complicated and frankly quite mundane betting scam, All Black forwards would carry out certain pre-ordained acts that had been bet on by a crooked betting syndicate. Not one of those nice betting syndicates that you’re always hearing about, but a crooked one.
The middle man claimed that New Zealand forwards would be offside at a ruck during the third and tenth minutes of the recent game against Australia. They would also be offside during the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th and all other subsequent minutes of the match.
The ICC have so far failed to look into the matter. “We are the international governing body for cricket” a spokesman stated yesterday. “Rugby is an entirely different sport to cricket. This has nothing to do with us.” they whined.
