A rugby club is set to celebrate Guy Fawkes night round a large TV after health and safety forced organisers to use footage of a bonfire rather than the real thing.
Organisers at Ilfracombe Rugby Club in Devon say they were put off having a real fire by the ”mountain” of paperwork and regulations set by council chiefs.
With a few exceptions, rugby players aren’t generally known for our ability to deal with mountains of paperwork. Or any other kind of work for that matter.
This is sad, yet ironically fitting.
