The RFU have fined Leicester amateurs Aylestone St James £1,575 for "forcibly removing the underwear" of three anonymous north east-based officials.
The incident took place at Aylestone's Covert Lane clubhouse after a Midlands Three East (North) match with Grimsby.
The referee was unaware of a tradition that patrons should wear no underpants.
Several club players and members then "ripped off his underwear whilst he was still wearing trousers" and two other officials arrived to the same welcome.
In one of the officials' written statement, he described the experience as "humiliating and embarrassing", and said he suffered "12 hours of some discomfort and pain".
Aylestone stated to the disciplinary panel, who described the act as "a physical assault", that "the club deeply regretted the referees were subjected to discomfort and/or humiliation."
Of the £1,575 fine, £1000 was a voluntary donation by the club to the charity of the officials' choice.

English customs and clubby traditions seem preoccupied with undergarments! Wink

I guess it goes back to the raucous Medieval times when English literature was stuffed with "OOh Err Missus!!!!" innuendo and downright filth!

"Ged'em'off, Missus."  "Ged'em'off, gents."  "Ged'em'off, your Lordship."  "Ged'em'off, King Henry!"................. oops, it's off with that guys's head for having the temerity.

Actually my club (Ashby RFC) has had the "No Pants on a Saturday" tradition for decades... and we play against Aylestone St James (Jimmies) regularly.

We think they... ahem...adopted the tradition from us.

It tends to be only "enforced" on our social nights etc. and we never extend it outside of the club members & players etc...

We are certainly never moronic enough to wedgie the pants off the officials!!

Very, um, misguided implementation of tradition... very traditionally misguided.

For the sake of most of Norfolk I hope that never happens.

Hmm this didn't surprise me. Having played against Jimmies I can testify to them being a pretty single minded bunch. They have a similar tradition at the breakdown where if you contest it and look like you might win it then you get punched in the chops.

Hmmm... Belgrave have a similar interpretation of how a breakdown should be played too.

Belgrave is a very odd club. I've played against them and they've been a great bunch wanting to play and have fun and also on different occasions where as you say they were a bit punchy and stampy.

I've only twice ended up in a a fight and they were at Jimmies and at Old Newts.
