There may be an unfortunate spate of murders since the New Year in New Zealand, but our boys in blue have far bigger moral fish to fry. A crackdown (no less, according to the Sun newspaper in Britain) on a popular dress code among fans of rugby 7s, the mankini, inspired by Borat, because the rugby 7s is supposed to be a "family" event.
Never mind that your average youth will hit you in the head or laugh at you out loud when you are wearing a mankini, the one thing he won't be is scared or offended by it.
And don't the cops know that a rugby 7s event is for adults only, to get boisterously drunk and to dress outrageously up?
in this Summer weather we're having it's a delight to see that men dress appropriately and daringly. Viewing and attendance figures can only improve - we all know rugby can do with that after last year's debacle. The policemen should offer to apply sunscreen on the mankini boys instead of booking them (unless as models)
