Line of the week

Okay, it’s only Monday but this one will be hard to beat:

It’s a nice place to visit but you wouldn’t want to lie there.

It comes from a Southland Times editorial on Mathieu Bastareaud’s attempt to blame his clash with a bedside table on a mugging. You can read the rest of it here.

Not the first time

French rugby player Mathieu Bastareaud’s claim he’d been mugged when he was just a victim of his own inebriation wasn’t very clever.

It doesn’t help that his admission of the truth wasn’t voluntary. It only came after the police approached rugby officials here to tell them what their investigations had uncovered and the NZRFU then contacted their French counterparts.

I’m not suggesting his stupidity should be compared to an act of sabotage which resulted in a death, but it’s not the first time the French have underestimated our police force.

Could we now call that a Bastareaud of a thing to do?
