Delhi’s Rajiv Chowk metro station to be used as live training ground for rugby players

19, Nov 2014 By viveks

New Delhi. Rajiv Chowk station of Delhi Metro will now be the training ground for upcoming rugby players across the world.

This opportunity was identified by South African rugby team’s captain Jean de Villiars, who recently visited India to promote Rugby in the country.

Rajiv Chowk
Perfect training ground.

Jean said that he wanted to travel from Cannaught place to Gurgaon through Metro however he failed to board the train at Rajiv Chowk metro station, inspite of him being 6’3” tall, 103 kg heavy and having years of experience of pushing through humans in field.

He realized that the people who daily board train at Rajiv Chowk metro station are better trained to break the scrum than any rugby player he had seen or played with. He feared that if India forms a team out of people who travel from Yamuna bank station to Huda City Center every day, can beat any team in the world.

South African Rugby Union was alarmed on the knowledge of this insight and had decided to send their teams to Delhi to commute in Delhi Metro for 2 months as a part of mandatory conditioning camp.

Going a step further, American team announced that they would pick their team based on the performance of players in boarding the train at Rajiv Chowk and whosoever is able to gain a seat would be made captain.

Faking news tried to contact Rahul Bose, only known rugby player to us and Salman Khan, who was seen playing rugby in revital advertisement, but both refused to mutter a word.
