That’s entertainment

In the days before the RFU finally accepted that it lived in the real world and turned professional,even dyed in the (Dewsbury heavy) wool rugby league fans could sometimes be spotted during the long winter RL drought slipping into rugby union games. If you asked them whether they really enjoyed the 15 a side game they’d say, “No, but it’s great fun watching a bunch of solicitors and policemen beating each other up.”

A similar delight has been afforded the inmates of French penal establishments over recent weeks. The rpison officers are in dispute with their employers and have been picketing some jails. Prisoners in the grandstand cells have been able to relish the sight of their warders trading blows with the gendarmes sent to disperse them.

The simple pleasures are the best!
