Welsh rugby fan fined

As a Welsh rugby fan myself, I was both heartened and disappointed to note on the BBC News website that a travelling fan had had a scrape with the law.

Kristian Bowen, 19, from Neath, admitted assaulting a police officer in Hawick in the Scottish Borders on Saturday. Sheriff Colin McClorey is quoted as saying
“I hope you are thoroughly ashamed – in a real sense you have let the side down here. Welsh rugby supporters have a tremendously high reputation with mutual hospitality with Scottish rugby supporters especially in this area. I hope you show contrition by having a look at your drinking habits and getting them under control.”

He was fined £600 and ordered to pay the officer he assaulted £150.
