Thread: Impolite Provincial Nicknames - mainly rugby

    Impolite Provincial Nicknames - mainly rugby

    My Dad (bowed out several years ago) had a fair bit to do with the Marlborough Rugby Union when I was growing up (60's/70's).

    He always referred to the Nelson lot as "Sandy Hookers" and sniggered like hell when he said it (usually over beers with mates) but I don't recall what was said about other provinces.

    Does anyone else recall those sorts of nicknames??

    I suspect the Sandy Hook refers to the farewell Spit, but probably has a double entendre as hookers spit too....We had some dodgy very Un PC ones at high school.

    not rugby but league... the state of origin NSW used to be called the cockroaches and Queensland were the banana benders......not the boring old blues and maroons of today

    You depart with mighty boasts, but you come back having done little.
    Sounds like a typical hunting trip !

    College footy we had Syrups and Blue bottles in my days at college......The names were not so bad in themselves, but the legend behind them was disgusting....
