An ass-tute response! Deserves an independent probe (digitally enhanced, of course).

c'mon, like anyone should be surprised at this 'unsportsmanlike interference' from a bunch of beefy woofter mud-wrestlers

this sort of thing goes well beyond normal rugby unrulyness. it's not just unsportsmanlike, it's obscene.

also, I play rugby, and I do not consider myself a "beefy woofter mud-wrestler," but I guess that's your call. ;)

From aus.sport.rugby-league

John Hopoate's Top 11 Judiciary defences:

1)He was suffering from single digit inflation.

2)Honest, he was just lying prostate on the ground.

3)I was just widening the circle of my friends.

4)I was just getting an update.

5)I was looking up an old friend.

6)I thought it was the "Eye of the Tiger".

7)I've never eye gouged before and I'm crap at anatomy.

8)I saw an opening and went for it.

9)Well, it was my ring-finger.

10)Terry told me to pull my finger out and stick it up Butts.

11) They were giving me cheek.

(you might have to understand some rugby league lingo to get a few of these)

Why does it seem to me that if this happened outside of a sporting field, the guy would be charged with three counts of sodomy?
