French And English Rugby Teams Announce New Tournament



The announcement of a new tournament comes hot on the heels of the recent news that French and English teams would no longer be participants in the marquee European rugby tournament the Heineken Cup.

A joint-statement from the heads of the French and English associations, Peirre Camou (of Topbet)and Mike McCafferty, was read aloud at a packed press conference.

The statement contained in it several key elements of the new breakaway tournament which will comprise Aviva Premiership and Top 14 teams.

The duo proclaimed that ‘it would be against the rules for any French or English to be beaten’ and that the new format would ‘award 3 points for a win, 3 points for a draw and 3 points for a loss’. Confusingly ‘losses’ will now be renamed ‘wins’.

Hushed snickering from journalists in the room could be heard before the press officer reminded them of their new guidelines when writing up match reports.

“In order to receive tickets and press accreditation for the new tournament journalists must agree to describe all players as ‘world class’, ‘Best of British’ and/or ‘classy Frenchman’.

The oddest part of the nascent competition will see every team win the tournament. Medals will be handed out to each and every team along with a stage on which to celebrate wildly.

The was unavailable for comment when contacted by WWN but rumours are rife that BT Sport are willing to pay €43 billion for the rights to broadcast the new tournament which will be named the ‘England and France are the best Cup’.
