    Default Battle of Trafalgar

    A rugby match between the British Royal Navy and French Marine Nationale erupts into a brawl in Toulon on Wednesday. Footage posted on YouTube showing players from both sides trading blows as the fight spills over onto the touchlines. The annual match, nicknamed ‘Le Crunch’, was able to continue. The Royal Navy side lost 28-6

    Pick the bones out of this.

    Why bring trafalar into it.
    Battle of Toulon February 1744, War of Austrian Succession from Wikipedia "In Britain the battle was regarded as the most mortifying defeat". Captain Matthews court marshalled on charges of having brought the fleet into action in a disorganised manner, of having fled the enemy, and of having failed to bring the enemy to action when the conditions were advantageous.

    Which seems appropriate.

    There'll be a few Divisional Officer interviews (without coffee) after all that.

    The FFR will probably treat it as par for the course and take no action

    Spot on. Bans a plenty unless the 6N DC are involved. Mind you for some all that's required is a quick "sorry".
