ON FRIDAY 4th October myself and my wife went to the Newport Gwent Dragons v Zebre rugby match at Rodney Parade.
Just before the game kicked off the cheer leaders came onto the pitch to perform their routine. They were introduced by the stadium announcer as they came onto the field, at the end of the announcement the announcer said the following over the loud speaker system “and always a welcome bit of eye candy too”.
Both myself and my wife looked at each other as we couldn’t believe what we had just heard! The average age of the cheerleaders, who are all young girls, must be 14 years of age.
We both feel that the comment “eye candy “was inappropriate!
I have contacted the Dragons and have asked them to contact me, to date I have not heard back of them.
