Entertainment at rugby to be banned

The only thing going for rugby these days is the unofficial on pitch entertainment of streakers invading the ground before kick-off. These entertainers invariably raise a cheer among the crowds which are otherwise depressed at the thought of another dreary rugby game.
Now the Government (under pressure from the rugby management) has imposed stiff fines of $5,000 for anyone being on-field unauthorized.
Another reason not to renew my Sky Sport subscription.

Other sports which have been livened up by streakers: cricket, snooker, Aussie Rules Football.
The world's number one prolific streaker has a website and an ASBO for his efforts.

On the other hand, who needs streakers if you can have specimen like Patrick Kearney running on the field:
