Farah broke his right hand in multiple places but does not require surgery and gave some hope for Tigers fans by saying he would be willing to fight through the pain barrier should his team-mates qualify for the finals.

Crikey, that's nuts! Sad thing is compared to cricket, rugby almost makes sense.

It's probably just a quidditch reference subby.

I don't know anything about soccer, but I'll take a stab at it.

Rabbitohs is the name of the team, like the Canadiens, or the Browns.

A hooker is a position in the game, much like you have catchers in baseball, or tight ends in football.

Luke is a player on the team, and he plays that hooker position.

Silly rabbitohs is a play on an old catch phrase from Trix cereal commercials.

Another type of hooker is a person who takes money in exchange for sexual favors.

So the last part of the headline is insinuating that these prostitutes provide oral sex for Luke, which insinuates that Luke is some sort of badass.

Perhaps it doesn't make sense if you don't speak Rugby...a similar headline would read "Dolphins drop wideout Johnson"

It's not soccer, it's rugby league.

South Sydney are a shiatty team, anyway.

It's not that hard to understand if you read the subhead, kinda explains it all. Not sure what a "hooker" is in this context, but I assume that it doesn't involve sex acts for money.

It's not like American sports headlines make much more sense to people who don't understand the references.

Makes all the sense in the world to a rugby player/fan.

This makes me want to bust out my Rabbitohs underwears again.

Or perhaps I'll order a new pair.

Okay let me break this down.

Rabbitohs = The South Sydney Rabbitohs Rugby League team. They are owned by Russell Crowe and play in the Australian National Rugby League (NFL of Australia).
Drop = Cut from the team.
Hooker = A playing position in Rugby League.
Luke = Issac Luke, the guy who plays hooker for the Rabbitohs.

Look, if you don't understand the headline, Pat, that's ok, you don't have to chime in and pretend.

Smelly Pirate Hooker: It's not that hard to understand if you read the subhead, kinda explains it all. Not sure what a "hooker" is in this context, but I assume that it doesn't involve sex acts for money.

A "Hooker" is the one in the middle of the scrum. His purpose is to hook the ball with his foot and move the ball between his legs, so a team mate can pick up the ball and run with it.

It is a farking brutal position and you get kicked. A lot. A real lot.

/Former rugger (RPI rugby club)
//Halfback. I'm not built for the Hooker position. If I were to play Hooker, I would die. Literally.

Come on people, it's tongue twister time.

1. I saw Susie sitting in a shoe shine shop. Where she sits she shines, and where she shines she sits.

2. Something in a thirty-acre thermal thicket of thorns and thistles thumped and thundered threatening the three-D thoughts of Matthew the thug - although, theatrically, it was only the thirteen-thousand thistles and thorns through the underneath of his thigh that the thirty year old thug thought of that morning.

also today in Tajikistan, a peaceful demonstration turned to bloodshed as members of the Turzirly tribe flooded Kenpao Square in remembrance of the third anniversary of the Hormsburg Massacre. But finally, some good news out of neighboring Kanduzi, as locals there have reached an uneasy alliance with the bordering Trolika Bubsie Wubsie Dal.

and in the world of sport, the Cointen Spinky Whompers flumped the Floing Boing Welfencloppers, 70-fluff to 40-flabe. At the tone, the time will be 26 railroad *beep*
