To me and sundry others who see eye to eye with me

Eample one: When bowling we'll suppose, without intent,
You hurt a batsman badly so that half his strength be spent.

Footy Fun

Ruggerby; thuggery.
We're so not gay; buggery.
Sportsmanship; drinking spree.
Rape and drugs; 'Wasn't me! "

Blood 'n guts 'n broken bones,
Mothers pass to us your sons,
We'll all have some 'Footy Fun':

Ruggerby!
