I think there is potentially a lot of mileage in this story, especially if they break off their world tour to get to the USA Aus game. Just the sort of off game publicity that "money can't buy" that our sport rarely gets. 

Possibly even three paragraphs! Oh my...

Quite, a "band" that nobody has heard of, fly to a sporting event.  It's not like they're Gary Glitter or anything.

"Wiggles founder Anthony Field will "move heaven and earth" to accept an invitation to attend the USA Tomahawks quarter-final clash with Australia"

I think the tournament organisers should also be moving heaven and earth to get them to the game.

From: http://en.wikipedia....iki/The_Wiggles

 

In 2003, when the group performed at Madison Square Garden, front-row tickets were sold for US$500,[34] in spite of The Wiggles' efforts to reduce scalping by limiting the number of seats sold per transaction.[75] In 2008, the group found themselves in the midst of what The Daily Telegraph called a "ticketing scandal";[75] scalpers tried to sell a A$19 ticket on eBay for almost A$2,000 and a set of three tickets for A$315 for concerts in Melbourne, and a group of three tickets to a Wiggles UNICEF charity concert in Sydney had a price tag of A$510. The tickets were taken off eBay and voided.[75]

 

Not bad for a band that nobody's heard of. :rolleyes:

The USA team could incorperate a Wiggles dance into some sort of Haka to intimidate the opposition, would pay to watch that :)

You've given the game away Larry:

"Strangely enough, one of the best gigs I saw in the 70s was Gary Glitter and the Glitterband. This was just before The Fall. It was astonishing. A friend of mine put a Glitter record on in a pub recently and they turned it off because of what he is now, but it's worth remembering what a great band they were." Renegade page 40.

Put this with your occasionally curmudgeonly contributions and you are obviously Mark E Smith. I claim my £5.00.

My take on the USA game and the Wiggles song http://southwakefiel...t-iestyn-sulks/

Plus young Iestyn spitting the dummy! Good to see he's going to stick with league though. Think he's got too much to offer, to be wasted doing defensive drills for a club union side.

The Wiggles are massive in the USA, especially in New York City.  Something like this just helps the Tomahawks get a little more cut through into America.

Had to get up for a wee last night. Halfway through I realised I was singing it.

 

At 3am.

 

For no logical reason.

Haha! :laugh:

 

I can imagine the interview with the losing coach:

"What do you think happened tonight on the pitch?"

"Weeeellllll...it's like this.  They did this crazy Haka and my team laughed so much, they couldn't concentrate the whole game.  Kept knocking on......."
