Stoke City set to join next year’s Six Nations

Scrumming it

Stoke City look likely to be offered a chance to join the 2013 Six Nations Championship after senior rugby officials were impressed by their rucking and mauling style despite losing in the FA Cup to Liverpool.

Tony Pulis’s side have consistently played quality rugby in spite of them participating in football competitions, but their persistence appears to have paid off after this breakthrough for the club.

A spokesman for the Six Nations confirmed, “The way that Stoke are playing their rugby right now means that they might have the best chance of cutting Wales’ celebrations short at next year’s tournament.

“Stoke have been incorrectly involved in football for years, but their rugby tactics are so effective that they have enjoyed no small amount of success.

“Hopefully this will see the start of a new era for Stoke, and everyone involved with the club will finally be able to watch their beloved team playing the right sport.”
