From Worksop To The World Cup

Ah, pre-tournament friendlies. A casual kick-about, serving little purpose other than to engender false hope/fear in the fans, risk injury to the star players, and earn a bit of cash for the littler opponents. As with all friendlies, pre-season in Aldershot, or pre-tournament in Auckland, the players are really just going through the motions.

Unless of course it is New Zealand v Australia.

The internet is awash with game-based violence. And it is a right old hoot, of course. The reason this merits special mention is because it involves a bloke who played for Worksop. I may even have watched him play for Worksop. He wasn't Blake Norton though. I liked Blake Norton.

Ladies and gents, I give you Leo Bertos
