The 2007 Rugby World cup has been thrown into turmoil after English Newspaper, the Sun broke the news that full back Percy Montgomery was not eligible to play for the South Africans and as such the World Cup final and possibly the entire tournament may have to be restaged at a cost of millions.
The South African team were boarding their Apartheid Airlines flight for their triumphant journey home when the story broke and French Air Traffic controllers refused to give the aircraft clearance for take off.
After armed Gendarmes boarded the plane and arrested Montgomery the World Cup was seized and tagged as stolen property, the Springboks were taken from the aircraft in disgrace, Habana was close to tears,
"I just cant believe it! They said if we won they would let me sit on a seat on the way home and even have some food."
A Rugby World Cup Attorney confirmed this afternoon that Montgomery had been found to be ineligible because he is under contract to Steven Spielberg's Production company, Dreamworks and has been cast as Prince Charming in the next 39 Shrek Films.
A spokesman for Dreamworks confirmed "Its true, he is Prince Charming in the Shrek movies, he told us he was filming a wildlife documentary in Scotland.
The matter will be dealt with internally, hopefully"
England's Coach, Brian Ashton complained "As holders we had a lot to lose, we came into this tournament fearing no-one and then we played South Africa in the 1st round and got thumped 36- 0.
"I think the tournament should be played again without Montgomery, he gave the Springboks an unfair advantage, the first time we played them all our lads were trying to kop a feel of him and forgot about the game plan, Wilkinson was so jealous of his haircut in the final it left him unable to concentrate."
