Sarrie the Camel and Wolfgang the Wolf, the club mascots, were unable to attend the Aviva Premiership match against Worcester at Allianz Park on Sunday.
‘Sarrie’ called in sick from his Hendon bedsit complaining of severe abdominal pain and cramping. The club doctor diagnosed the humped crowd-pleaser with gastroenteritis and he is currently resting up, watching daytime TV’s finest medical-crime shows Quincyand Diagnosis Murder. “He’ll be fine for theBathmatch on May 4,” the doctor said.
Wolfgang, recently arrived inBritain, decided to take in a game of football on Saturday and attended Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final between Millwall and Wigan Athletic. Unfortunately, the friendly wolf was caught up in unfortunate events and is now suffering from what psychologists call post-football stress disorder. “I’m sticking to rugby from now on,” he said this morning.
