RUGBY PLAYERS are a funny bunch.
All the hours they put into training, honing their talent and preparing their bodies for match day, you’d think they would be ready for battle.
But that’s not the case for this superstitious mob, who will do anything to get that extra bit of luck before a big game with these incredible rituals.
And if you think something as simple as keeping the same seat on the team bus will cut it, wait until you read the length some players will go to to ensure a win.
#1. Mark Cueto’s recipe for success
Former Sale Sharks and England international Cueto had a culinary superstition during his playing days, yet not quite the type of cuisine worthy of a Michelin star.
The humble classic of beans on toast was a staple part of Cueto’s pre-match preparation and the winger would not take to the field unless this had been consumed.
It didn’t stop there – the speedster also religiously endeavored to put his left boot on first before every match, along with being the last man off the coach and the last out of the changing rooms. Anything for success though, right?
