Pontycynon may be a small village in the Welsh Valleys – but their rugby team is now huge thanks to one brilliant tweet posted last nigh.
With the cold freeze gripping Wales, plunging December temperatures ‘forced’ the amateur side to call-off training.
But the team – who label themselves as the ‘ world’s worst rugby club ‘ – provided a hilarious explanation to their followers which instantly saw their message go viral.
Tonights training is cancelled because …… well because it’s bloody cold that’s why.
And besides, it doesn’t matter how much we train let’s face it we’re still bloody shite so let’s stay warm and dry in the bar and make training a #NewYearsResolution !
Until then 🍻
