    What would William Webb Ellis think

    Two pupils at a prestigious private school have been expelled for having sex on a pitch where the game of rugby is said to have been invented.

    The pair were excluded from Rugby School in Warwickshire after they were caught in a compromising position on The Close.

    This is where William Webb Ellis first picked up a football and ran with it in 1823.

    The girl and boy, both in the lower sixth form of the public school, were caught by a member of staff and immediately expelled.

    They are reportedly being allowed to return to the school to sit exams but must study elsewhere.

    A school statement said: "Two sixth formers were asked to leave the school 10 days ago for infringing the school guidelines regarding personal relationships.

    "We have clear rules on these matters, which everyone in the school community understands."

    The boarding school, which also caters for day pupils, has around 800 students.

    Fees cost up to £7,500 a term and former pupils include poet Rupert Brooke and Lewis Carroll, author of Alice In Wonderland.

    He'd think, "lucky feckers, wouldn't have happened in my day." [img]smileys/wink.gif[/img]

    Actually, maybe that's where the oval ball comes from - they were lying on it and it got a bit squashed in all the 'action'.
