ALIENS LAND AT STADE DE FRANCE

by Steven Marsh
The game obviously couldn't continue and was awarded to England by default (for wearing white), ending another World Cup dream for the unlucky South Africans.

Even with the vocal protestations of the South African management, the stadium emptied and the golden cup was handed to the victorious, but shaken,
captain of England. The few spectators that remained, mainly Springbok supporters, booed the ceremony and threw empty water bottles at the spaceship. Rumours were already rife that the UFO was a premeditated stunt and some fingers pointed at the England management.

Paris - Alarmed spectators fled from the Stade de France as a saucer-shaped object landed in the centre of the playing field this afternoon.

The Rugby World Cup Final was about to kick off when the strange object noiselessly hovered for a few minutes above the stadium and then wooshed down on to the field, interrupting an enthusiastic Zulu dance performed by finalists South Africa. It landed with a dull,  metallic thud that echoed the failed aspirations of this World Cup Final.
At first it was thought to be part of the fanfare of the final, until a few death rays incinerated some of the players on the bench. The other finalist, England, was the recipient of most of the damaging rays.

Amongst the ensuing mayhem, the Springboks stoically tried to complete the war dance, but was generally ignored and drowned out by the screaming and people falling over. The South African coach could be seen in an animated and heated discussion with RWC officials at this stage. It was clear that he was not happy at all.
