Wardy’s Wagers: All blacks all right in the Rugby World Cup
I played rugby once as a kid. I thought I was doing pretty well but all the coaches kept saying was, “nice try.”
I thought they were condescending sods, so I never played again. I got quite injured though as it’s a tough sport.
I went to the physio and said, “it hurts when I touch my arm, my chest and my leg.” The physio replied, “you’ve broken your finger.”
I know a Jehova’s Witness who took up the game to spread his message. He’s scored a few tries but hasn’t made any conversions yet.
The Rugby World Cup has kicked off in Japan.
Though most of teams have as much chance of winning as The Sun has of getting a Christmas Card from Ben Stokes.

Canada are one of the teams involved who have no hope.
Their Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was in hot water this week after pictures emerged of him “blacking up” in his youth.
I’m disgusted when I see these pictures from the past showing how many people thought it was ok to wear ‘blackface’ for a laugh.
What was it about coal miners and chimney sweeps especially that made them such racists? Beats me.

Anyway, there is nothing offensive about the New Zealand All Blacks – apart from they are criminally good at rugby.
They are the favourites for the trophy and I can’t see anyone stopping them from becoming World Champions.
