Justice For Bruce

Bruce the Pug

There have been some rumblings of discontent among the great and good members of the rugby club this festive season.

Cries of discrimination and cold heartedness concerning a much loved pooch, Bruce the Pug.

He has been quashed by committee men, snubbed by office bearers and ignored by officials. Comments include, “he doesn’t deserve to be a member”and rumors flying thick and fast about how Bruce “only wants to take advantage of 2 meals for a tenner at the West House” ringing loud and clear!

In response to these rumors and his maltreatment Bruce has issued the following statement to our President:


Dear President Dundee High Rugby (Mr Fraser Clarkson)


I write on a subject that I believe is very serious. It is that of discrimination. I am sure that this is a subject no one should put up with. I realise it is a bone of contention. I am under 18 so I get in to all rugby games free. However my membership has been refused on the basis there is no category for the likes of me and it is this I bring to your attention. It feels sometimes as if I am chasing my tail and being hounded out. I have a letter penned ready to be sent to the Court at Strasbourg dependant on your answer. I believe neither of us courts adverse publicity. I have collared around 50 names so far that support my membership but I know there are many more pending. I think all the players including the captain Alan (Dawg) Brown would support my application and many of the members. I am told you may refer to them as “bufties”.

I earnestly hope that you consider my letter and assure you I will be dogged in my determination for justice. I look forward to hearing from you soon.


Yours in Rugby




This message has been penned by a responsible person as I have some complex learning difficulties. I confirm it is ex-President Gerry Tosh, (I feel Gerry was the best President the club ever had until you), who always welcomes me and makes a fuss of me every time he sees me at Mayfield and at all the away games. I ask you to use him as my principle communication. I am told there is a campaign soon to be mounted.
