Changing Lanes

JPR Williams must have spat out his Coco Pops when he read about Andy Powell and his escapades on the M4 the other night, and slipped craggily into his best Crocodile Dundee impression: “that’s not drink-driving, this is drink-driving“. It seems there’s a generational discrepancy between the old and new pack of Welsh ruggers; where the younger bunch prefer fun and flimsy Mariokarts, the seniors’ choice is something a bit more hard and metal.

Of course there’s nothing funny about driving nearly two times over the limit, but JPR tried to add his own comedic touch by buying into the ancient ruse of swilling copper coins round his gob, a myth I thought that was only perpetuated by teenage hoodlums trying to get home after a WKD bender.

Apart from it being completely pointless, it also incriminates you immediately. What else would you be doing with your loose shrapnel clanking around molars? Sorry, I thought they were chocolate?
