New compilation features some of the darkest moments of cynical cheating in rugby history
A new compilation which shows some of the worst moments of cynical cheating in rugby has just been created. The video has already amassed 100,000 views in a day.
The video, which looks at some of the worst instances of cheating in our game was created by a YouTuber called Andrew Forde and it looks at moments when players have used gamesmanship to their advantage, sometimes in some of the sneakiest ways possible.
The video looks at a lot of English rugby players which is surprising to us as we thought they would not feature as heavily as they did.
News: Exeter new kit sparks fresh debate
Exeter Chiefs have ignited a fresh wave of criticism after launching their kit for the 2020/21 season. In response to a petition signed by over 3,500 people, the English Premiership outfit conducted a review in July regarding their branding and use of Native American imagery and subsequently dropped their mascot.
The club maintained use of their logo, though, believing it to be highly respectful, but that did not appease some of their opposition. The club said in a statement at the time: “Content provided to the board indicated that the name Chiefs dated back into the early 1900s and had a long history with people in the Devon area.
“The board took the view that the use of the Chiefs logo was in fact highly respectful. It was noted over the years we have had players and coaches from around the world with a wide range of nationalities and cultures. At no time have any players, coaches or their families said anything but positive comments about the branding or culture that exists at the club.”
But upon the release of their new kits this week, the previous criticism Exeter had faced resurfaced, particularly regarding their third kit. This shirt displays two chief emblems across the midriff in a similar fashion to their current purple kit.
The organisation Exeter Chiefs For Change responded to the kit launch on Twitter, requesting that another review is conducted ahead of the 2021/22 season.
