LION BITES 'STUPID' WALES HOOKER BALDWIN

LION BITES 'STUPID' WALES HOOKER BALDWIN

OSPREYS COACH STEVE TANDY CONFIRMED THAT HOOKER SCOTT BALDWIN'S ABSENCE DURING THE PRO14 MATCH AGAINST THE CHEETAHS WAS DUE A LION INCIDENT.

Baldwin's hand was bitten by a lion at a game park, prior to Ospreys 25-44 defeat to Cheetahs in Bloemfontein.

The coach described the unrelated rugby incident as 'pretty stupid' and showed no sympathy for the injured player.

"There was an incident with a lion, but in fairness, it was nothing to do with the lion," Tandy told reporters after the match in Bloemfontein.

"He did bite Scott but when you put your hand in a fence where there is a lion, then you will get bitten.

"It was pretty stupid on Scott's behalf and he is pretty lucky. It was a good environment and we were told how far back to stand.

"I don't know what sort of wildlife show Scott has been watching where you can pat a lion on the head as if it's a kitten,"

I won't be surprised if some of these Cheetahs players are bought by European teams soon!

Good stuff! :)
Yes!
They must just keep it up and then the last 20mins or so the altitude will take its toll on the visiting team.
Some of them were already breathing heavy after 30mins or so.
