Rugby's Ospreys Set New Standards

Rugby's Ospreys Set New Standards

, 1 min reading time

With all the hype about overpaid sportsmen and women, news reaches us of sweeping changes to the players code of conduct, at Ospreys. Playing in the Rabbo Direct Pro12 league, formerly the Aviva Premiership, they currently sit at the top of the table. Clearly these news club rules have had a positive effect. Osprey's head coach, Steve Holley, had instructed his players of the new standards expected of his players, prior to the season. They included no coloured playing boots, unless the player had 15 international caps or played in excess of 50 times for the club. No fake tans allowed, real tans were approved, clearly this was a move designed to get rugby players looking like rugby players, once again. Remember how fake tanned Gavin Henson used to be, when at Ospreys. Holley has been justified in this responce with his team sat 2 points clear, with 6 wins from 7 games. It is a shame we didn't have his input for the English team during last months rugby world cup. How soon can we expect the football stars of the Premiership, to have similar restrictions on their looks and on field fashion statements.
