Rugby players run shocking nude forfeit
2:47pm Monday 30th April 2007 in News
GOBSMACKED was the reaction of the man who snapped this picture of players from Bridgwater and Albion Rugby Club's Colts' team carrying out a shocking forfeit for losing a match.
David Plant could not believe his eyes when he saw the brave group, wearing nothing but socks and shoes, parading along Bath Road last Saturday evening (April 21).
The Colts' had just lost a match against Weston at Bath, in the Somerset U-19 Cup final - so they ran naked from the Cross Rifles pub to the ground on Bath Road.
A club official said it was not the first time the team had taken on the stunt, but for the first time they were cautioned by police.
But this was not the end of the naked antics.
By coincidence, after this Saturday's (April 28) final first-team game, three players from the opposition, Havant, also decided to streak round the ground.
