Pennywise spendthrifts at the Ospreys are appealing to the WRU for release from a forfeit still outstanding from the last meeting of the Professional Regional Game Board. The forfeit, incurred for pointing with a finger (of the non-drinking hand) at the Chairman during his rendition of Elton John’s “I Guess That’s Why We All Hate The Blues”, forces the Riviera based region to make inexplicable scrum-half signings.
“That last fella with all the apostrophes is off to Northampton, so they’ve been forced to go into the transfer market and sign another international who’ll be away for most of the Autumn and the Six Nations,” said the rugby equivalent of Tony off of Bullseye: Sean Holley. “I’ve got it on good authority that Andrew Hore says this has really hit them for sucks.”
Elsewhere, lesser drinking forfeits are still in evidence among Wales’ other three regional rugby franchises. At the Blues, coach Phil Davies has made much of his commitment to keep a squad with at least 25 players under the age of 25, but is privately livid of the requirement to have 4 of them be called “Phil Davies”.
Under the rules of “Buzz”, The Dragons and Scarlets need only recruit one ex-scaffolder each per season.
