Rhys Priestland and Owen Farrell to have their passports confiscated
Following performances on the summer tours to Australia and South Africa that some would describe as problematic but this blog would describe as like one-legged men attempting to kick a bag of disabled cats suspended from a high ceiling, the RFU and WRU have confirmed that both Owen Farrell and Rhys Priestland will no longer be allowed to leave the country to play rugby.
In a joint statement, the two governing bodies said, "It's quite clear that Owen and Rhys simply cannot do the rugby once they are exposed to southern hemisphere air, food and the like, so it's probably for the best that they are confined to the UK until further notice. We are also exploring the possibility that the long flight may have caused a deep vein thrombosis that caused them to forget everything they know other than how to pull anguished faces."
"Both the RFU and WRU appreciate that France is not in the southern hemisphere and will make an interim travel decision about that bloody place soon enough."
Owen Farrell has taken the news philosophically, stating "I like it when the ball goes far in the sky, it's like spinning an egg to the moon. Makes you think doesn't it?"
