Springfield, MO – To commemorate the dedicated fans of Springfield Rugby Club, free concussions will be provided at this weekend’s last spring season game. After the match, players will make themselves available in a touch-and-feel scab booth where spectators can run their hands over scabbed knees, elbows and foreheads to better understand and appreciate the game.
“We’re looking to involve more people with fun tactics,” said Jonesy Figerton, “everyone knows we accept new players on Tuesdays and Thursdays during training but we felt that concussions and scab booths were very original ideas to involve the crowd, and our dedicated fans.”
SRC player Percy Botha has volunteered to work the crowd during Saturday’s match while nursing a knee injury that prevents his participation in the match. “Botha will be walking the sidelines during the game, head-butting anyone who would like a free concussion,” said Figerton, “he is disappointed that he won’t be able to help us in our match against the SEMO Redhawks, but he’s eager to engage the fans by cracking them in the skull with his cranium.”
Admission to the event is free and the field is located north of James River Expressway at 7294 W. Farm Road 144. Anyone who enjoys a game like football–but for men, is encouraged to attend the ruffian game played by gentlemen (preppy blokes, bogans, drongos, jocks, academics, farmboys, yuppies).
