The manager of a lowly London and South-east rugby club took his team on an African safari holiday, and while there, he came across a native athlete who could run, kick, pass, and juggle a coconut like a born rugby player.
Excitedly, the manager called a meeting of all the players and introduced the young athlete to them. 'This fellow's brilliant!' he said, 'and I've persuaded him to join the team, on six months' trial. His name is Obongo Matabulu. Now then,' he continued, holding up a rugby ball, 'this - ball -BALL!'Then, pointing at the goalposts, he said, 'That-goal - GOAL! That - goal line - GOAL LINE! You put BALL over GOAL LINE: or kick BALL over CROSSBAR.'
'You don't need to explain the game in those simple and rather patronising terms, old boy,' said Obongo Matabulu. 'I played for Harrow when I went to school there, and later for the Cambridge University.'
'I'm not talking to you,' said the manager. 'I'm talking to the rest of the team!'
