The Airds are visiting at the moment and Airdy (the bloke) accused me of being football phobic in my recent blogs, as I have been having a go at footballers for being a bit nancy when they are tackled. To be fair I think he has a point, so in the interest of balance I have found this video of rugby players doing a bit of ‘play acting’. I think you’ll agree that the IRB needs to take stern steps in this regard – the standard of role play is extremely poor and is very unlikely to ‘fool’ the ref.


These guys make little or no attempt to match the excellent rolling around that we’ve been seeing in Brazil. Most of them have obviously never even bothered to study Stanislavski’s method acting and simply just lie there. One nil to football I’m afraid.
