Former NRL player Anthony Watts has been accused of biting an opposition player on the penis according to the Gold Coast Bulletin.
Watts, who plays for Tugan, is alleged to have bitten a player on the love muscle from Bilambil. While the player refused to make an official complaint it seems his screams were enough to prompt officials to review game footage.
The alleged bite occurred in the last minute of the first half, just before the bell.
If video footage proves that Watts did in fact chop some man meat he could find himself facing a stiff penalty.
Rugby League has had some crazy incidents over the years but this one is hard to top. I can’t imagine what the defence would be for such an act. Maybe it wasn’t so much of a bite as it was a bit of a quick taste, who knows.
What sucks about this whole thing is that it will give Rugby League negative publicity it doesn’t need. It is blow to the games reputation and will no doubt see a number of gags made.
We can’t have players looking to maul each others wedding tackle. Who even thinks about doing that sort of thing! You have to wonder what would make a player snap and decide to fang a one eyed monster. It makes you wonder what the world is coming to!
Of course, Watts is innocent until proven guilty. No doubt the vegetarian defence is his best option. At the very least it’s a good yarn to tell. Unless the footage clears Watts of taking a bite of the opposition players Gareth Hock, he will find himself part of Rugby League folklore.
It would probably also mean that Watts would be facing the sack.
