image for Scoreboard Stolen
An artist's impression of the missing scoreboard

Police are investigating the theft of a scoreboard from the grounds of the Wakefield Trinity Wildcats.

Chief Superintendant Crapper, speaking to a host of reporters and film crews, explained that he would leave no stone unturned in the search for the missing scoreboard.

An appeal from a shocked and distressed Wakefield Trinity club owner can have left few people unmoved. He spoke of the love which was felt by Trinity fans for their scoreboard. 'Losing our scoreboard is like losing an arm or a leg. We will find in difficult to play Rugby again without our scoreboard.'

Police fear copycat thefts could follow this incident and special guards have been placed on scoreboards at several grounds in the area.

Police think a gang must have been responsible because the scoreboard was too heavy for two people to carry. However it is possible the scoreboard was broken up at the ground.

Anyone knowing anymore about the missing scoreboard is asked to ring 999 immediately. Police advised members of the public not to approach the thieves as they would clearly stop at nothing to silence anyone who gave away the score.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
