News from down under where an Aussie rugby player has been cleared of deliberately weeing in his shorts during a game.
Apparently the Illawarra District Rugby Union was asked to investigate allegations by the Wollongong Vikings that an Avondale player urinated in his shorts to put off opponents from tackling him. The Vikings even sent the IDRU a photo showing the player with a big stain around his groin area (see picture).
Despite the same player reportedly being accused of the same offence last season, the IDRU has dismissed the allegation, stating:
‘‘He had wet shorts, but there’s no evidence to back up claims the wetness was urine. If someone had made a statement saying they tackled the bloke and he stunk of urine then we’d look at it..."
...which, when all is said and done, is surely taking the piss.
