“In light of recent results we have withdrawn the range of commemorative mugs (shown right) and we will be replacing these with a new set of mugs.”
When pushed to elaborate on what the new set would look like, Hennie van de Merwe scowled for a little under twenty minutes before replying “the original set will be replaced by the starting XV which lost to Japan”.
“Each of them will be put up on eBay for a special price of only 10 rand each. Collect the set and you would have the ideal training opposition for your local school, as long as you don’t copy the way they tackle, or run with the ball.”
Asked whether he felt that the Bok management was over-reacting and being too harsh, Van de Merwe only replied “No.”
So there you have it, what an exciting Rugby World Cup this is looking to be!
Addendum: the above real mugs can still be had direct-from-factory in Japan.
