Friday Funnies - Mike Tindall and his nose on A League of Their Own

It's been a day for royalty, so sticking with that theme, here's a funny look at England captain Mike Tindall's recent appearance on the hilarious sports quiz show, A League of Their Own.

You may have noticed Tindall and wife to be, Zara Phillips, at the big wedding earlier today as part of the royal precession. They themselves will get married in Edinburgh in June, albeit with a slightly less flash affair.

Princess Anne, Zara's mother, has given her blessing to her daughter to marry the rugged rugby player, but has asked Tindall to sort out his damaged nose first. "She's a bit worried about how the wedding photos might turn out," he said.

After eight separate breaks he says he's had surgery on it before, which didn't turn out too well.

"I had two metal plates inserted up my nose to keep it straight. The very next game, I was playing for Gloucester against Northampton and one of their players put in a high tackle. He pressed his thumbs on my nose and...crunch! The metal plates popped out on to the pitch.

"I'm not keen to do it again."

There has been talk about the nose being in such bad condition that any operation would be an extremely complicated procedure, therefore surely something that wouldn't be worth doing before his career comes to an end. Their big day is in two months though, so it looks like someone will need to do some serious airbrushing to the wedding photos.

As you'll see in this classic compilation of the best bits with Tindall from a recent episode of A League of Their Own, his nose comes up in conversation fairly often. There's plenty of good banter, with some great comedians (and Freddie Flintoff), so hopefully you enjoy it.

  • tindal seems like a real awesome bloke. Took all the jokes with a laugh, class...

    Also, some fair points there, albeit funny. He COULD come to be king consort. Also, he'll sing an anthem about his "auntie". Genius

  • LOL does anyone else think the guy with the eye liner tackles like ROG?

    Yeah it's a troll, but I know he's a funny guy, seen him on comedy network few times.

    Couldn't really understand the guy on the right at first but it got better. Don't really understand the premise of this show and some bits were funny... best was the end.

    Chris, the internet and the opinions of people expressed on the web have led to a number of governments around the world falling recently.

    Your opinion that "nobody actually gives a shit" couldn't be further from the truth. Perhaps, today, you don't 'give a shit' about the validity of opinins expressed online but rest assured that the nomination of the internet for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2010 was not 'one big piss take'.

    The internet was the primary driver of recent revolts in the Arab world, was central to the Iranian uprising and has been successful for two decades as means for effecting positive social and political change.

    --------

    Clearly there's misunderstanding and I worded myself poorly. I meant the whole 'first' shenanigans are one big piss take, not the internet itself. My mistake.

    But, the Nobel Peace Prize was invalidated when Henry Kissinger won it. Even more so when Obama got it. I don't think there's a bigger piss-take in Politics than the Nobel Peace Prize, if I'm being frank. And you'd struggle to find an honest, politically literate individual who'd disagree with that assessment.

    Also if we want to wax political, the internet was only nominated because it contributed to uprising in ENEMY STATES. If it was used as a vehicle to bring about removal of government through violence in the West it wouldn't be praised, it would be roundly criticised and used to justify censorship and the control of internet. In fact groups organising even peaceful protest in the West via Facebook, for example, are often victim to the censorship I mention - seeing their groups shut down on request of Police.

    Of course the internet is great, you could even argue it's the first real example of a large anarchist society; but understand if the internet brought about violent revolt in ally nations it wouldn't receive Peace Prize nominations lol.

  • british TV is mostly aimed at...brits. And, a bit, at those that get their humour. But mostly at Brits.

    These clips are funny to millions (in TVland) and a reasonable number here. So, they work.

    But nothing destroys humour more than over anal ysing it, so if it ain't u'r bag, don't bother.........

    I'm British, but I've never really found this show funny tbh, it does have its moments. But please do not compare the ENTIRE British comedy and television industry to a short clip of this program that you saw on rugbydump. You need to watch more than a 10 minute clip to have a valid opinion of British T.V or any other Nation's T.V...sorry ReactorField

  • Hey RD, I frequent your site an awful lot, I do not contribute to any of your videos, I bitch about a lot of your videos, I don't like a lot of your videos however I rarely request anything. I only like the team from my own country, I hate all other teams because they produce sub-standard rugby...even when they beat my team its only because we got robbed by the referee or they cheated or because we dont care about that match so we dont care if we lost.

    I hate all other users on this site and try to cause arguments amongst them. I represent the modern day rugby(football) fan because its all about how loud I can shout.

    I pay no money towards this site, however I feel your choice of videos here are poor. Please remove all these videos and only post videos which correspond to MY views and MY team!

    Kind regards,

    Your daily visiting c*nt!
