Anyway, to cut a long story short we had too many on our side so I agreed to referee (see picture below).

I tossed the coin and as I went to pick it up, Rhino, Elephant and Hippo all arrived and in the furore all 3 stamped on my hand. I heard something crack and became a little worried. When the dust settled, I lifted my arm and shook off the dirt. It turns out that the earth underneath had cracked creating what is now known as a tectonic plate*.

Suffice to say us footballers are really manly and can crack the earth and run off broken spines, where as rugby players look like this.

*That's not to be confused with a Tutonic plate which is essentially a plate full of cold bacon fat and lard that is eaten by northerners on a daily basis.
