Rugby players to be screened for heart attacks...

330976hmpl_wThis news has made me so angry I've got a tight sensation in my chest, a numb left arm and an overwhelming sense of death. Young yugby players to be screened for heart attacks? Crazy!

A MSP (that's an MP in a kilt) is to explore the possibility of starting a pilot scheme to screen young rugby players in the Borders for the risk of sudden cardiac death. The SNP's Christine Grahame hopes a £100,000-a-year initiative planned for football could be extended to rugby. Sounds a little bit pricy to me. Surely the money could be better spent on improving Scotland's youth rugby facilities, so more kids get playing and are at less risk of ill health!

South of Scotland MSP Ms Grahame said, "Obviously rugby union is a very significant part of the Borders sporting and social life." She added that she would be seeking a meeting with the Scottish Rugby Union to discuss the screening. Och!

CPR is at hand for the bampot that wrote this "article". Only youth players who want to be screened will be offered this. It is a programme that is also supported by MPs (thats Moronic Ponces in London) across the UK. The cost of the pilot in the Borders will be £2000, not £100,000 both of which are a tiny fraction of the oil revenue England robs from Scotland every year. Now I appreciate, old boy, accuracy is a problem for you pips down thar, but at least try to get it right, just for once. Pip, pip and fah, fee-fah and toodaloo and all that. Personally I think the biggest health risk facing the youth of today is from those hankie waving jessies who skip about in white shaking their maypoles at each other. Moronic Dancers I think they are called, although I appreciate they are the important back-row element of the England national team. Ya, oh Ya.

Quite brilliantly put Percy. I'd say more but I've got to get back to oil pilfering...

There is nothing crazy about this. Do you think the likes of Phil O'Donnell were unhealthy when they collapsed playing the game they loved?

It is a step in the right direction. It will help in avoiding any mishap during the match...
