I thought the Pope resigned out of respect for Juan Smith who retired from rugby? Whistle

So it's official : Euan Murray is a better prop than an octogenarian former Hitler Youth. Apparently the new Scotland badge will incorporate the words "Gott mit uns, and the messiah too"

Don't mess with a good gag - until the Vatican join the 6 Nations, Italy is close enough!

The Pope would've made a great captain. Can't see any ref arguing with the word of God - better even than McCaw.

It could become a tad tedious if they had to wait for the Pope to arrive at every breakdown, ruck, scrum and line out though. Whistle

I suppose performance enhancing is the answer for him, besides who's gonna tell the Pope to wee wee in a cup? Laugh

I'd love to see a game with the Pope, McCaw and BOD on at the same time. It would reduce the ref to tears. Unless it was Kaplan, who'd trump them all.

I think Healy would be less likely to stamp on the Pope - but if he did, who better to forgive him?

When the pope is "crowned" he has to sit on a special chair with no seat while underpantless and be carried over the heads of senior members of the church to check that he is in fact a he and not a she! I imagine that would be slightly more embarrassing than being told to pee in a cup.

Sounds like a standard rugby club initiation ceremony.

Ok, I like to consider myself a fairly educated and experienced man of the world.... but in religion I'm an ignoramus (or agnostic, as I'd rather call it)...

.... Someone tell me this is TRUE... Very Happy

Sorry to burst the image...

Generally, there are two versions of the legend.
In the first, an English woman, called Joan, went to Athens with her lover, and studied there.
In the second, a German woman called Giliberta was born in Mainz.
"Joan" disguises herself as a monk, called Joannes Anglicus. In time, she rose to the highest office of the church, becoming a pope.
After two or five years of reign, 'Pope Joan' became pregnant, and during an Easter procession, she gave birth to the child on the streets when she fell off a horse. She was publicly stoned to death by the astonished crowd, and according to the legend, removed from the Vatican archives.
As a consequence, certain traditions stated that popes throughout the medieval period were required to undergo a procedure wherein they sat on a special chair with a hole in the seat. A cardinal would have the task of putting his hand up the hole to check whether the pope had testicles, or doing a visual examination.[citation needed] This procedure is not taken seriously by most historians, and there is no documented instance. It is probably a scurrilous legend based on the existence of two ancient stone chairs with holes in the seats that probably dated from Roman times and may have been used because of their ancient imperial origins. Their original purpose is obscure.
In a seventeenth-century study, Protestant historian David Blondel argued that 'Pope Joan' is a fictitious story. The story may well be a satire that came to be believed as reality. This view is generally accepted among historians.

Pretty sure it's a form of heresy to fondle the Pope's plums.
