Ruff and ready rugby roadies Newport Gwent South Wales Dragons are offering their ‘underdogs’ tag for sale, in a bid to raise cash ahead of another bitingly cold winter. The wonga will go toward the upkeep of the Dragon’s most coveted tag: ‘hardworking’, and fund urgent reparis to ‘fortress’ – currently majority owned by Rodney Parade.
“We hope to raise a similar amount that Connacht did when they sold off their ‘whipping boys’ tag to Aironi,” spat dead-pan Head Coach Paul Turner. “But the tag market is pretty uncompromising, let me tell you. When we were flying high a couple of seasons ago we bid for ‘complete bastards’ from Leicester, but they turned us down – the complete bastards.”
