Bin Laden wasn't a rugby fan?

I've read in the news today that our Tyson Fury is the world's top rugbyst.

Tyson fury working out with a small woman. Pft, she's to easy on him. ISayMoo is tougher. We've been working out harder and jogging almost every week day since the beginning of lockdown. 10 pounds gone without dieting. I will make it a stone. I mean, he will.

our Tyson Fury
Our? His real name is Ó Fiodhabhra but they changed it to Fury to make it sound more English. He is a Pavees.

Irish Travelers use a secret argot or cant known as Gammon. It is used primarily to conceal meaning from outsiders, especially during business transactions and in the presence of police. Most Gammon utterances are terse and spoken so quickly that a non-Traveler might conclude the words merely had been garbled. Most Gammon words were formed from Irish by applying four techniques: reversal, metathesis, affixing, and substitution. In the first, an Irish word is reversed to form a Gammon one – mac, or son, in Irish became kam in Gammon. In the second, consonants or consonant clusters were transposed. Thirdly, a sound or cluster of sounds were either prefixed or suffixed to an Irish word. Some of the more frequently prefixed sounds were s, gr, and g. For example, Obair, work or job, became gruber in Gammon. Lastly, many Gammon words were formed by substituting an arbitrary consonant or consonant cluster in an Irish word. In recent years, modern slang and Romani (the language of the gypsies) words have been incorporated. The grammar and syntax are English. The first vocabulary collected from Irish Travelers was published in 1808, indicating that Gammon dates at least back to the 1700s. But many early Celtic scholars who studied it, including Kuno Meyer, concluded it was much older.

"For example, Obair, work or job, became gruber in Gammon."

So Tyson Fury's mother told him to go and find a job, but one of them confused the whole secret code and he's become a rugber?

In the bar, they say 'rugger' in  fact. It's a term used by toffs. Dublin 4.

Understandable. That's much shorter than "Tyson Fury, the Leeds United rugber".

Having never contemplated the idea of watching a rugby match (assuming “match” is the right word), even I could figure out that this melee is the feared All Black team cheering on itself.

I suppose finding  level playing field in Norge is difficult.
