R.I.P. Catz Rugby
R.I.P. Catz Men’s Rugby – a debauched Christmas social has seen them officially disbanded till Michaelmas 2010.
The Catz men’s rugby team have been officially disbanded with immediate effect by the college’s Dean, Dr Xuareb, after their rowdy antics got out of hand on their annual social at the end of Michaelmas 2009.
The captain of SCCRFC must hand all kit to the Head Porter by 3pm on Tuesday 12th January and they will not be allowed to reform until Michaelmas 2010.
This is a damning blow to the stuttering team, who were hoping to regain respectability this term after finishing Michealmas bottom of the first division having lost all their games.
The Tab exclusively revealed the news of the SCCRFC’S behaviour back in December and here we can reveal another exclusive: extracts from a letter sent by the manager of the Red Bull Inn to the college’s Dean on 2nd December 2009, the day after the now infamous social.
‘I am writing to inform you of my disgust with a Christmas party organised by one of your students…at the Red Bull in Newnham. Despite several requests from my staff and manager to control the group they were eventually forcibly ejected from the premises.
‘The list of events is as follows: throwing food over floors and walls, ripping pictures and decorations off the walls, breaking a toilet seat, vomiting all over toilet walls etc., urinating from upstairs window over a patio area, collapsing in the toilets…
‘A female member of staff who informed me of further conduct breaching onto sexual harassment by asking her to bend over in front of them and other lewd acts they would like to carry out.
‘My staff did everything they could to look after the group and deserved more respect…The whole experience left not only my staff but my customers with a bad taste in there [sic] mouths.’
The offending letter is hanging in the college’s Porters’ Lodge for all to see.
However, for some boys, the other repercussions of the event may seem even worse than the team’s suspension.
For, in addition to the printed letter, the Dean has revealed that the SCCRFC must reimburse the management for the cost of cleaning and repairs and must provide ‘a period of unpaid service’ in the Red Bull by way of reparation.
Tasks they may be expected to complete include ‘dishwashing, cleaning toilets and washing floors…as agreed between the management and of the Red Bull Inn and the Dean.’
Looks like they’ll be swapping their mouthguards and scrum caps for Toilet Duck and rubber gloves…
