The Rugby World Cup is taking place in New Zealand. Scotland literally went up against the hosts. That didn’t stop the three players from celebrating. Now there are results.

IThere are two popular forms of rugby, union and league. The biggest difference: Rugby league has two fewer players per team (13 instead of 15). The World Championships are currently taking place in Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea in this edition. Scotland is one of the participants. And since this weekend, three players have lost.

However, this is not because of the rules, but because of the love of alcohol. In the middle of the tournament, he got so drunk that he was not allowed to board the team plane. After this the association expelled the players from their team.

Scottish rugby union boss Keith Hogg said: “These players do not meet our standards of conduct.” Apparently, after the second loss in the second World Cup game (6:74 against New Zealand), Danny Brown, Sam Brooks and – no kidding – Johnnie Walker drank so much that the airline barred them from boarding at Christchurch airport. was declined.

This decision met with the full understanding of the Scottish team management and resulted in the suspension of the players. Hogg said, “You’re going to be out early in a tournament that’s a privilege to be in.” Bru’s failure is particularly colossal. The 34-year-old is one of the most experienced players in the team and has previously been the captain of the team.

Without Brown and the other two players, the team traveled to Cairns, Australia, where Scotland would play their final group game against Samoa. Despite two bankruptcies at the start, a win would be enough to qualify for the final round. Brough, Brooks and Walker can watch the game from the comfort of couches or bar stools.
