A bloody deception in rugby costs team big money

Where's the fakery in this bloody sports incident?
Tom Williams of the Harlequins rugby team cut his lip during a match.

Why did his cut lip cost his team £259,000?

(It was during Europe's Heineken Cup match against Leinster.)

Because it wasn't a real cut. It was fake.

Because he used a fake blood capsule on the field.

Because later, the team doctor sliced his lip with a scalpel to make it real.

Why did he do this? His cut allowed a specialist goal-kicker to replace him on the field to try and win the match.

They lost anyway.

The player, the team doctor and the director of rugby got into a wee bit of trouble.

These pills are not considered standard issue
for rugby team doctors.
