Australia's Sydney Convicts Won The Bingham Cup After Stripping To Fundraise Travel
The Sydney Convicts have done it again.
The Sydney Convicts are Australia’s first gay and inclusive rugby union club. They have been around since 2004 and have since participated in multiple competitions and cups such as the Bingham Cup.
Now, they have won the Bingham Cup, the world cup of gay rugby, for the fifth time. The Convicts won the award after defeating the New York Gotham Knights 22 – 8 this past Sunday.
“Sydney Convicts are the extremely proud to win the Bingham Cup,’ said club president Don Rose.”
“The Amsterdam tournament has been the largest in its history with 2300 players and 72 teams.”
“After 3 days of Rugby the Convicts ‘A’ progressed unbeaten into the grand final and in an extremely tough and hard fought final against the New York Gotham Knights we came away with the Bingham Cup for the 5th time.”
In addition, the Sydney Convicts’s B team also won the Bingham Shield.
These feats are amazing given what the Convicts had to do in order to fund their participation in the competition.
In order to pay for travel to Amsterdam and participate in the Bingham Cup, the team hosted an annual strip show titled Rugger Bugger. During that show, the team members let loose, danced, had fun, and shook their bare butts a little.
All of that raunchy play led them to this Bingham Cup victory, so it was absolutely worth it.
