...and then there were eleven.

Ah, the great thespians of our time! Daniel Day Lewis. Matthew McConnaughey. This Rugby player.
A Rugby match erupted into hyena-like cackles as one player decided to milk an injury for all its worth (which we think is an Oscar). SRSLY though, if you listen closely, the crowd literally sounds like a stadium full of jackals.
There was some light pushing in this game, and one perhaps-Julliard-trained athlete dropped to the ground in a manner that makes us believe he took a stage combat workshop with The Royal Shakespeare Company.
He clenched his jaw (even though he was hit in the chest), and crumpled to the ground like a poisoned Hamlet. The referee, like Horatio kneeling before the dying Dane, patted him on the shoulder as if to say, "Good-night, sweet prince, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."
If this were a play, there would not be a dry seat in the house.
