Update: April Fools! We hope anyone didn’t take this too seriously!
It is with deep regret that I inform you today that the Imperial College Union Rugby Football Club is being disbanded with immediate effect. Imperial College Union has unanimously voted to disband the club in response to an incident that occurred after Varsity on the 18th of March. Members of the club were caught wearing clothes on the buses transporting them from Twickenham Stoop to Imperial College Union. This act was in direct contravention of the ‘Clothes, Windows and Public Transport’ Policy of 2014.
Club Captain, Homas Tobson, has made this statement:
It is with a heavy heart that I make this statement today. On the night of the 18th of March, over 40 club members were caught in the act of wearing clothes on a bus travelling between Twickenham Stoop and the Imperial College Union. Action had been taken within the club to strip said members, however the Union felt this was too little too late and has today passed the motion to disband the club.
In the event the club is able to continue next year, we will be holding workshops to advise members on appropriate dress wear, this will be in order to ensure this sort of incident never happens again.
Once again I am deeply sorry to all those who have worked so tremendously hard over the past years to make the club what it is.
In other more successful transport news, three coaches travelling to Reynolds had windows broken while 6 female athletes were left drunk and alone in west London, in a successful implementation of the ‘Sexism and Transport’ policy enacted this term.
