Rugby Players Like Their Beer

Rugby players are a tough bunch, and at least in the antipodes they love their beer. A survey of players in the National Rugby League, which is considering an alcohol ban at its sporting events, found that only 21 of the 40 players surveyed would continue playing if beer was banned at games.

According to one "prominent player:"
"I love a beer, so I'd never agree to something like that. I don't think it would be fair to punish every player in the comp because a few of them get into trouble. A lot of us like a beer and can have a few after a game without losing the plot. You can't punish every player in the competition for the actions of a few blokes who get out of hand."
The man has a point. (link via Fark)
