New sports rules ban rugby players with no teeth

Rugby will now only be played by men with teeth. How long it will be until there are no qualifying Rugby players left remains to be seen

The UK’s Combined United National Team Sports committee oversees rule changes in all sports played in the UK.

The committee has received several complaints of unfairness from players in many different sports. This has led the committee to impose several rule changes to create a ‘level playing field’ for all participants.

Rugby
Players will only be allowed to take part in a Rugby game if they have at least two of their front teeth. As loss of teeth is a major hazard in the game, it was felt that players with no front teeth had less to lose and were therefore more likely to tackle harder.

Horse racing
In horse racing jockeys will be banned from inflating their jodhpurs and jackets with helium in a bid to lighten the load on the horse.

Cricket
Every foreign team apart from Bangladesh will be banned from playing in the UK. Bangladesh is the only team England has a good track record against.

A committee spokesman said: “We want the games to be as fair as possible, otherwise it’s just not cricket.”

Tennis
The net in tennis is to be removed after several players complained it was stopping the ball going into their opponent’s half.

Snooker
In future snooker games, all the balls will be a light grey to prevent disadvantaging players who are colour blind.

Racing
All racing cars will be banned from using rear view mirrors. Some drivers complained that cars in front could see them approaching and would deliberately stop them overtaking.

Football
Football will now be played with two balls after some players complained that they couldn’t run fast enough to kick the single ball that was on the field.

The BBC has already bid a disproportionate amount of its tax license fee for TV broadcast rights.

The committee is currently looking at complaints and rule adjustments for other sports,

They are actively seeking comments from players of all sports who think they have been disadvantaged by an unfair rule.

    Hey Red – thanks for sharing.
    Yep, I like blue jackets, too, although I’m not sure they will make it easier to differentiate between the grey balls 🙂
