Note: Police reported that Geoff had a history of mental problems, so he may not have been of sound mind at the time. If so, this is regarded as a disqualification for a Darwin Award.
It was Wales' first home win over England in 12 years. Geoff was taken to a hospital where he remained "in a seriously ill condition."
"No one should be this devoted to his team!"
"They take their sport seriously in Wales!"
"A tad drastic."
"I told you that you Taffs had strange rituals!"
"A little Welsh sport to "lighten" your load...LITERALLY!"
"Never bet while you are pissed!!"
"How pathetic do you have to be to get disqualified for a Darwin?"
Reader Dale says, "He used a (blunt) pair of wire cutters, or so it was reported in the British press. It apparently took him 10 mins to complete his task!!!"
