Standing Up

Found this at, a rugby website I frequent.

“Whispers on the wind at the moment…….

A story from Cardiff is that the Rugby Club and Cardiff City have joined forces at the training ground and now share the facilities in the Vale of Glamorgan.

Spirit between the two camps is high however the rugby boys have noticed the footballers tend to do all their parking in the disabled car parking spots.

The majority of the Rugby camp didn’t think too much of this but it clearly rankled with Tom Shanklin. So much so that during the Cardiff City training session, while the City boys were celebrating and talking over the well earned win over Nottingham Forest the Saturday before, Shanks interrupted the huddle only to say “Well done on your win boys. All the rugby boys and I watched it and we want to do say well done. It’s one hell of an effort to beat Forrest 2-0, especially given that half of you lot are f*cking disabled!”

The parking allocations surprisingly were different the next day.”

Tom Shanklin, a welsh man I can respect!
