Rugby faithful fear loss of street credit from cancelled match

Under threat

Six Nations followers are concerned after the cancellation of yesterday’s match between France and Ireland was cancelled late on due to snow and bad weather.

Loyal egg-chasers fear that repeats of this kind of decision-making could cost them bragging rights in regards to claiming that their sport is the real “man’s game” when compared to football.

One disappointed travelling Irishman warned, “If they called this one off because they don’t want to risk players being hurt on the ground, we might as well head to Old Trafford.

“Snow is the last thing players think about when faced by 15 brutish opponents, waiting for the moment to gouge their eyes out and pick them up and slam them down on their heads.”

Relief is said to be widespread after people were able to watch the first-half of Wales v Scotland on the BBC, which featured men trying to pummel each other into dust far more often than it did any behaviour which could be argued to be a sport.
