With two weeks to go until the Alex Goode summer Social takes place, Lightwater takes a look at some of the best rugby benders of all-time

5. Martin Castrogiovanni in Vegas, 2016

Italy prop Martin Castrogiovanni had been suspended by his club Racing 92 after pictures of him partying in Las Vegas surfaced on social media with Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The 34-year-old had told Racing that he could not play in their Champions Cup semi-final clash with Leicester Tigers as he had a family matter to attend to in Argentina. Naughty boy.

4. England vs dwarves, 2011

Past Captain Mike Tindall was leading his country into battle at the 2011 Rugby World Cup but still had time to play a part in the ‘Mad Midget Weekender’ along with a number of other squad members.

3. Alex Goode everywhere, 2019

His session is still ongoing. He’s gunning for the number one spot.

2. John Jeffrey & Dean Richards vs the Calcutta Cup, 1988

It was not only Scottish pride that was dented after they lost 9-6 to England at Murrayfield, the almost priceless Calcutta Cup itself came in for some rough treatment itself.

1. Andy Powell in a golf cart, 2010

He’s the Welsh rugby star who nicked a golf buggy under the influence of alcohol and took it for a spin down the M4.
