Isn’t it great that stuff like this still happens?
Following allegations from the Samoa team captain, Mahonri Schwalger, that team manager Tuala Matthew Vaea and other senior officials treated the Rugby World Cup as a holiday and spent most of the tournament drinking, Vaea has been fined 100 pigs by his village.
The village chief of Leauva’a, Sala Lose, told the New Zealand Herald that Vaea’s alleged actions had tarnished his high-ranking title.
Rather than boring fines and suspensions, it’d be great if this punishment was introduced for the next time the England team go away for a tournament.
Not sure many of the players keep pigs though. *Insert misogynistic WAG joke here*
