Who is taking the piss? That would be the Rugby Football Union, who slapped a charge on Leicester De Montford University's rugby union club for alleged "initiation ceremonies". These ceremonies allegedly included making wannabe players jump into a paddling pool filled with urine. Nice. Therefore I guess with their actions you could argue that the RFU really were taking the piss (away from them...).
Anyone fancy a dip?
Other alleged initation tests included eating dog food, standing naked on a playing field in view of the general public and sliding along a plastic sheet that was covered in foul smelling substances.
So if all this is true, do the De Montfort rugby boys have anything to answer for, or was it just a case of rugby high jinx between a load of backslapping students which really meant no harm? I wonder why they've been singled out for a slap on the wrists as initiation ceremonies aren't a new thing?
Either way, the paddling pool thing is just gross.
