The time-honoured Stubbies fines schedule - refined over 13 years of use! "At the end of the season we have a court session, where everyone has to repay their debt to society by drinking the equivalent of their total fines for the season. 1 fine usually equates to one cup of beer, however, any individual fines worth more than 1 are often liable for harsher forms of punishment, in the form of 'mystery spirit', which is usually provided by either the Sheriff or VC. There's usually some room for leniency/cruelty - depending on the nature of the offence, whether the accused has previously offended, how the rest of the team view the crime etc." These are just a few of many possible fines...

Cricket - Norths Centurions

This is an example fine schedule for the Norths Centurions. For our end-of-season court session, each player has to contribute $15 for food/booze. They also have to donate their fine money to the team's chosen charity, where 1 fine = $1. E.g. If Jeff has 10 fines, he has to pay $25 ($15 for the court session, and $10 donation).

Kangaroo Court Proceedings

by Phat | Aug 21, 2014 | News | 2 comments

The Kangaroo Court takes place on the Saturday evening and is organised to punish all tourists for errors or mistakes on or off the field. It dually acts as a means to drink as much piss as possible in a short amount of time. Each club or tour has its own variations of the rules of Kangaroo Court, however to ensure order as well as swift and harsh justice for the M.O.B. Byron Bay 2014 the following procedure is suggested (all those in favour say “Aye”):

The Short Explanation: The accused will: choose his own representation; face “The Prosecutor”; be judged by his peers; and ultimately either walk away unpunished or pay the penalty invoked by “The Judges”.

Who is involved?

All tourists take part in varying capacity, whether as the Prosecutor, Judges, Jury or Clerk of the Court.

Selection of the Judges Three judges shall be selected by the tour captain, ideally reflecting a cross-section of the touring community along with a desire to punish their fellow teammates.

Selection of the Prosecutor The Prosecutor will be chosen by the judges from the large pool of bullshit artists on tour. This should be a player who would be able to bluster, sputter, question, cavil, and present an argument intricate enough to confound the court. A guilty finding by the court is of utmost importance. All else is secondary.

Selection of the Jury It is useful to have the whole party act as the jury in all cases, because everyone knows drunks make the best jurors.

Selection of the Clerk of the Court As the Clerk is the member of the Court that will ensure the punishment is dealt and carried out (typically in the form of a beer bong), he  should be able to exhibit a foreboding, yet gimp-like demeanour. The Clerk will also bring the defendants and witnesses to the floor.

Recording of Charges Throughout the tour, members will enter charges against their teammates by submitting them to any of the judges prior to the commencement of Court proceedings. They will detail the individual’s flagrant acts of misconduct or behaviour, and suggest a fitting punishment.

It is also of benefit if those laying allegations are able to produce concrete evidence that can be produced at the Court in support of a particular charge (i.e. photographs, documentary evidence, witness statements, etc). This is particularly effective if the accused is denying the charge and is gaining some misguided sympathy from the jury.

Trial Proceedings The Clerk of the Court will name the defendant(s) and state the case at hand. At this time the judge will ask the defendant how they plead to the stated charges. If the defendant pleads guilty, the judge will then hand down the sentence. If the defendant has retained counsel and pleads innocent, we will proceed with the case. The Clerk will ensure that each defendant swear on the IRB Rugby Law book that they will “tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth so help me Rugby Gods.” The accused will present their defence and submit their evidence to the court.

Defence of a Charge It is, of course, only fair that a tour member accused of an act of misbehaviour be given an opportunity to offer a defence (as these are often entertaining fabrications). Defences can also be useful in that they entrap others who were involved but not seen, or they may lead to the laying of additional charges by the prosecution, such as contempt of court. All defence witnesses and evidence must be presented before the Judges when the Clerk of the Court calls you to the floor. The accused will be encouraged to hire a defence attorney to appear with them and speak on their behalf at Court. In selecting a defence attorney, look for one that you feel would be skilled in circumvention of the law (perhaps you have witnessed them commit many unnoticed penalties on the pitch). The accused will also be allowed to represent themselves, however:

“He who represents himself has a fool for a client and an idiot for a lawyer.”

The prosecution will follow with their case against the defendant. They will present before the court a  direct and concise argument, the chronology of events, and their supporting evidence (including documents, eye witness accounts, and photographs). The Prosecutor will then present the suggested sentence to punish the accused, and/or to recompense any victim of the crime.

Judgment The Clerk will call for the decision of the jury, and will record the majority ruling (“yea” for guilty, or “nay” for innocent). The judge will then weigh the merits of the case, the arguments of the defence and prosecution, and the ruling of the jury. The judges can either uphold the decision of the jury, or overturn the decision – specific reason to do so must be provided. During the trial, the Judges will have ultimate control of all court proceedings. If a member of the Court engages in conduct unbecoming a member of the Bar of the Court, the Judges (with approval from the Jury) will take disciplinary action against the member. The form of punishment will be at the Judges‟ discretion

Sentence If the accused is found guilty, the judges will then specify his sentence (which may or may not be the punishment that the prosecutor recommended). This sentence must be immediately carried out. The Clerk of the Court is responsible in seeing that the sentence is completely fulfilled, and the guilty party will not be excused until the Clerk is satisfied.

Mandatory Charges A range of mandatory charges will apply to for the following indiscretions.

  • Tour uniform breaches
  • First instance i.e. first tour, first try
  • Non-players

Behaviour in court

Silence in court – anyone wishing to address the court must gain the attention of a judge or the clerk by standing and raising an elbow and waiting until being acknowledged before speaking. Buffalo – Drinks shall be drunk whilst being held in the left hand by right-handers and in the right hand by left-handers. Any drink taken contrary to this rule is „buffalo‟ and can be called out by any tourist at anytime. The foolish tourist in question will be subject to ridicule and other tourists may dip any bodily appendage in the fool’s drink before or during consumption without the right of objection or protest from the foolish tourist. The guilty party must skull the sullied drink and organise himself another. False Accusation – strongly associated with buffalo justice, anyone believing themselves falsely accused of Buffalo can call false accusation whereupon the two tourists nearest to the person having made the false accusation court will instantly convene themselves into a tribunal and pass summary judgment. The penalty for a false accusation is the skulling of the drink held by the false accuser and the purchase by the false accuser of a drink for himself and another for the innocent defamed party Scuba – All pointing must be done with an elbow.

rugby tour kangaroo court

It may look like fun and games, but Kangaroo Courts play a serious role on Lions tours

FATHER’S DAY — ON 18 June in case you had forgotten — will prove that there are a lot of books written about Lions tours.

Some are great, some — as the returns section in Easons will likely attest on 19 June — are not so great.

But few ever go into a huge amount of detail about what happens at Kangaroo Courts, usually because those tasked with writing books about Lions tours are also the most likely to fall ‘victim’ to this particular brand of justice.

One exception is Brian Moore’s book — What Goes On Tour, Stays On Tour — which explains the concept and describes how court sittings would usually take place after each Test, sometimes occurring in makeshift courtrooms on buses or planes.

A team huddle during the training

There’s no such thing as a perfect Kangaroo Court, because you often have to make the best of your circumstances whether on a flight or in the team hotel.

However, besides the accused, it should always involve six key components; a judge, prosecuting counsel, court clerk, enforcers, defence counsel and a chief sneak.

1. The Judge

Ideally, this role will be held by someone who is universally popular on tour so that everyone respects his decisions and abides by them. Usually this role doesn’t fall to the captain in an effort to show that nobody is “above the law.”

It is also the judge’s role to decide what the punishments should be and can range from drinking fines to forfeits involving wigs and fancy dress.

2. The Defence Counsel 

Sometimes the defendant might want to argue his own case, but more often than not he’s going to be represented by another member of the touring party.

Unlike an episode of Matlock, this role in a Kangaroo Court is generally accepted as helping the court to find the player guilty.

3. The Prosecuting Counsel

Perhaps the easiest role in the Kangaroo Court set-up, this player will again be a respected member of the tour group and tasked with ensuring a successful prosecution.

Prosecutors who don’t get their man normally face a forfeit of their own.

4. The Court Clerk

Playing an essential role in organising the day’s proceedings, the clerk’s job is to read out the charges against each defendant and keep the session rolling along.

A senior member of the tour party normally takes this job.

5. The Enforcers

The clue is in the name as somebody has to enforce the punishments handed out by the judge.

It usually falls to the second-row forwards to take this job as the biggest men on tour.

6. The Chief Sneak

The poisoned chalice of Kangaroo Court jobs, the chief sneak is the person whose role it is to give information on potential cases to the court officials.

However, he has to be careful who he decides to report on as he might not want to annoy anyone who could have a say in his selection for a Test match.

The court in action

That’s the make-up of a Kangaroo Court, but what does it actually look like in action?

Well, outside of the world of tour diaries, the court phenomenon really came to public attention 20 years ago, during the 1997 British and Irish Lions tour to South Africa with the release of the documentary, Living With Lions.

The Honourable Judge Keith Wood presiding:

While the above footage hasn’t aged particularly well, the concept of the court lives on.

Though we don’t know who is playing what role in 2017, we do know that English prop Kyle Sinckler is likely to face justice after he got carried away during a table tennis game during the Lions’ first week in New Zealand.

The 19 stone prop is understood to have been desperate to return serve at the team hotel, but tripped and fell on to the table which broke under his weight.

While we don’t know what his punishment might be, we do know the court will continue to revolve around fancy dress, drinking — though maybe not as much as 20 years ago — and, perhaps most importantly for a group of players who spend two months every year trying to beat each other, team-bonding.

Kyle Sinckler

A bonding experience

The importance of team bonding should not be overlooked says Dr. Ciara Losty, a lecturer in Applied Sport and Exercise Psychology at  Waterford Institute of Technology and who has worked with many Irish Olympians ahead of both the London and Rio Games.

“The thing about the Kangaroo Court is that it’s fun, that’s the main thing I’d take away from the examples I’ve read about and seen,” she told  The42 this week.

“It’s about the group setting their own culture and norms and really creating that whole ‘band of brothers’ spirit on the tour.

There’s a famous quote from Martin Johnson that goes ‘forget your nationality, you’re all Lions now’ and that adds to the uniqueness of the group.

“The Kangaroo Court is something that’s unique to rugby and, once it’s done in good spirits and everyone enjoys it — which they seem to do — it really creates the ties that help bond the team together,” says Dr. Losty who has just help launch an  MSc in Applied Sport and Exercise Psychology in WIT .

After a defeat like today’s, a Kangaroo Court session might be exactly what the team needs to regroup but also key will be different personality types coming to the fore.

“It’s not a simple as introvert and extrovert. Personalities are far more complex than that and it’s actually the accepting of other people’s personalities that’s key to team spirit.

“Working as part of a team comes down to suspending judgement, empathising with each other and working to your team-mates’ strengths.

“In a group like the Lions you have to accept other people’s differences — maybe in terms of how they prepare or how they react to adversity — and you just roll with those differences.

“It’s not opposite attracts in situations like this, it’s the exact opposite. Even traveling on the bus to a game — you’ll have nervous talkers and nervous non-talkers — so it’s important to put the talkers all together, etc.”

Sam Warburton speaks to the players in the dressing room ahead of the game

Dr. Losty also says that no team contains the perfect mix of personalities but you’ll generally find with groups like the Lions that bonding between players will occur if facilitated by the coaching staff.

“Teams don’t exist in perfect universes so you’ll never get every type of personality but you will definitely get clear leaders — the ones with the strong communication skills who are very clear of the team goals.

“Sometimes you’ll see their mental strength is such that it helps them to push themselves physically to the limit too and are willing to step up in do-or-die situations and maybe kick that last-minute penalty, etc.

“You also have more team-orientated players. You’d often hear coaches saying ‘oh, he’s just a really good guy to have around the team’ and they might not be the big initiators but they are more than happy to follow along and buy into the process.”

And, as long as Lions tours continue, so too will the process of team-bonding through Kangaroo Courts.

Whether or not we read or see  exactly what forfeits are handed out in future, remains to be seen.

‘It was the greatest tour I was ever on but there’s still a huge amount of pain and regret’

Pressure mounts on gatland’s lions as brilliant blues win in style.

heading on tour in a few weeks. One of the lads attending has not played an away game all season, only home games. This will be brought up in court but trying to think of an original punishment which fits the crime. Any suggestions?

It's got nothing to do with that particular crime, but I'm a huge fan of taping people together as a tour punishment. Endless fun to be had with a roll of masking tape on tour!

Make him find 20 married women and tell them he doesn't play away from home, but wouldn't mind if they did...... Other options Fine him booze at every turn for breaking tour rules that have been made up in the spot - for wearing a blue shirt, for not wearing a blue shirt.... Make him carry around a cuddly toy (like Itoje's about to ). Set him a challenge like acquiring a sign post, preferably one set in concrete. (c) Dublin 1995. Nick his jeans and run them up the hotel flag pole. Dublin again! My favorite was the Bath trip where one of the guys failed to mention that his 40th birthday fell on tour. Heinous in the extreme, but nothing a quick stop at a charity shop and an over sized judo suit that he had to wear for the rest of the trip couldn't sort out.

The Kiwis and Kangaroos will head north to play England in 2027 and 2028 respectively.

The next Rugby League World Cup for Men’s, Women’s and Wheelchair teams has been moved to 2026 and will be staged in the Southern Hemisphere after France’s withdrawal as hosts for the scheduled 2025 tournament.

A stand-alone Women’s World Cup will be staged in 2028, with the next Men’s World Cup, after RLWC2026, to be held in 2030.

Regional Championships and World Cup qualifying tournaments for the Americas, Asia-Pacific, Europe and Middle East-Africa will take on greater emphasis, while a new World Series format is also being developed.

Further details about those tournaments and other international fixtures in the next five years will be announced by participating nations in coming weeks after consultation with IRL member nations.

There will also be announcements about the International Calendar beyond 2027 during the international window later this year.

IRL Chair Troy Grant said: “It is no secret that the Achilles heel for international rugby league for far too long has been the absence of an International Calendar.

“The ad hoc nature of tournaments and international matches, and the absence of any clarity for nations, players and fans to plan their seasons, is over.

“The International Calendar respects player workloads and importantly also reduces the impact on professional clubs.

“The standards have improved dramatically in recent years regarding player welfare and player workload issues, and they were key considerations in the calendar design.

“After we secure the future of international rugby league, our calendar will help rejuvenate and allow the game to grow globally, recognising the elite in our game and providing pathways for development of the game across all levels.

“I saw first-hand during RLWC2021 in England last year how much it means for players in each of our three disciplines to be able to represent their country of birth or heritage, put on that jersey and play with such pride for their family and nations.

“I couldn’t be happier that we have finally arrived with our much-anticipated calendar.  It’s been frustrating and I’ve shared the frustrations of fans, our nations, our clubs and the game broadly that we have failed to realise the potential the international game offers.

“Our calendar will allow us firstly to secure the future of international rugby league, with quality and consistent matches that are competitive, build on traditional rivalries and showcase the greatest game on earth.

"The Ashes return, with England Men’s and Women’s teams to tour Australia in 2025, while international tours are back, with Tonga heading to England in 2023 in an historic start to the new era.

“We have had some well-known legacy issues and world impacting events that have disrupted and destabilised our best efforts but its onwards and upwards from here.

“I want to sincerely thank the Chairs of the Australian Rugby League Commission, England’s Rugby Football League, the Asia-Pacific and European confederations, and the New Zealand Rugby League for their contributions and coming together for the good of the game to make our calendar a reality.”

ARLC Chair Peter V’landys AM said: “The Commission has a focus on growing the international game, with a strong desire to grow rugby league in the Pacific in particular. That starts with having an International Calendar for at least the next five years.

"Accordingly, I thank the Chairman of the IRL Troy Grant, who has been tireless in his pursuit of having a calendar that will grow the international game. His efforts have been rewarded and I’m excited with the opportunities the International Calendar will provide.

“Of equal importance is that there is now a strong plan in place to grow the women’s game at international level. This aligns with the growth of the NRLW competition and the growth of the women’s game at grassroots level.”

RFL Chair Simon Johnson said: “I am delighted that we have been able to bring certainty and growth opportunities to the international game by agreeing a long-term calendar.

"I am grateful to all my colleagues on the IRL Board for the constructive and collegiate spirit displayed in our discussions that have enabled us to confirm such exciting tours and enable the international game to fulfil its potential.

"This is a very exciting day for the game of Rugby League.”

YP Threads - Welcome To The Party!


The complete idiot's guide to kangaroo court.

Posted by Sebby Shape Shifter · April 15, 2019


Order! Order!

There has been a deeply disturbing trend sweeping the nation in recent years. A trend that threatens to undermine one of the pillars that props up this great nation of ours.

We are, of course, talking about the misconduct happening in Her Majesty's Kangaroo Courts. At kick-ons everywhere, the holy reputation of the Kanga Court is being tarnished time and time again.

The Kangaroo Court is meant to be a sacred institution, one where our grievances towards our fellow man be aired, and justice be served.

YP Threads, as pillars of society, are here to right this wrong. We want Kangaroo Courts all across the country to be functioning as they were meant to.

From the 3am garage session in suburbia to the trashed Air BnB, all the way to the pre-drinks that nobody makes it out from.

This is a sacred institution and must be treated as such.

As servants of the people of Australia, and indeed the world, we have penned the official laws of the Kangaroo Court. These laws must be obeyed, respected and preferably printed out and laminated.

rugby tour kangaroo court


For justice to be served among the lads, you will need a:

The Judge's role is to control and mediate the court house. He decides when defendants, prosecutors and witnesses have had their fair and lawful time on the stand. When the judge slams his beer can, his decision is final. The Judge generally remains The Judge throughout the entire court proceedings. If The Judge, however, has a charge laid against him, he must recuse himself. In this instance, a new Judge must take the stand.

Keep in mind The Judge does not actually dish out, nor choose the punishments. He is an extension of the people's will. Go against what The Judge says, and you are holding the court in contempt.

This role is not suited to the nut jobs of the group. Chose the bloke with his head screwed on the tightest and who has the most respect for the ancient rites of law.

rugby tour kangaroo court


The prosecution's role is to lay a charge against one of the boys, and then if needed, supply enough evidence to have him convicted by the jury. The prosecution must also details what he wished to be the punishment for the alleged crime.

The defendant must counter the claim or claims made against him by the prosecution. If he convinces the jury that he is indeed innocent, then he is able to choose a punishment for the defeated prosecution.

One or two of the boys must be assigned the role of bailiff for the proceedings. It is the bailiffs job to keep order within the courtroom and the enforce the court rules. Often, the bailiff's role will become more important the further into the court proceedings. It may be a good idea to employ the services of the biggest members of the group. This is due to the fact that drunk, disgruntled defendants have been known to get physical in the courtroom.

The rest of the lads in the courtroom must assume the role of the jury. It is up to the jury to decide whether the defendant is guilty or innocent.

The majority vote wins.

Additionally, if a jury unanimously feels the punishment is too severe or too lenient, they are allowed to change this punishment how they see fit.


The form of punishment is truly at the discretion of the court. The people may be as sever or as lenient as they wish. In general, however, punishments revolve around the consumption of booze. Generally, a certain amount of beer for misdemeanours and spirits for serious crimes will suffice. However, corporal punishment has been known to be enacted for the most heinous of crimes.

rugby tour kangaroo court

If a charge is serious enough, both the prosecution and the defendant may bring a witness to the stand. Each side is allowed one witness per case, and this witness may speak once. The witness is now required to be in the courtroom, as witnesses may take the stand via telephone or video link (to protect their anonymity) .

In the Kangaroo Court you are 100% guilty until proven innocent. The onus is on the defendant to prove his innocence.

In the Kangaroo Court, you do NOT have the right to an attorney. Each participant must self-represent in both the prosecution and defence.


The Judge must be addressed as "Your Honour". Additionally, The Judge must wear a wig or head wear of some description (the Steve Menzies style Albion head gear is recommended) , to show is high position in society.


Each defendant, prosecutor and witness must swear on a photograph of Shane Warne prior to taking the stand. While a photograph of the Sultan of Spin is tradition and preferable, an equivalent cultural icon will suffice eg. Beaver Menzies, Ben Cousins etc.


While each state and territory may have their own interpretation of the most holy laws of the Kangaroo Court, there is a solid list of rules which govern most courtrooms across the country.

The are as follows:

  • No talking out of turn (The Judge will nominate who is given the floor. If you wish to speak, you must raise your hand and then be given permission at the discretion of The Judge)
  • No pointing
  • No swearing
  • No toilet breaks while court is in session
  • To enter the courtroom, you must have a crime you wish to charge someone with
  • If a defendant refuses to drink booze, he must drink milk, because beer is for men and milk is for babies.
  • No drinking with your right hand (known colloquially as "Buffalo")
  • No first or last names. If you, for some unnatural reason, do not have a nickname, one will be appointed to you by the judge.


*** Penalties for breaking any of the court rules, as stipulated in the Constitution of the Lads 1821 Sec. 12 Par. 4:

"Anybody found to be breaking the rules of the court will be charged with 1 count of contempt of court. Penalty for contempt of court is the consumption, to completion, of whichever beverage one holds in one's hand."

Furthermore, if somebody is found to be breaking more than one rule, they will be charged for all additional rules they have broken.

These sentences will run back to back.

In other words, break three rules, finish three drinks back to back.

However, the final decision for punishment rests with the jury. The jury must decide on a standard punishment before court presides. The jury however is able to change the punishment throughout court proceedings, provided the majority wishes to do so.

2022 Kangaroo Kourt

The facts presented below are based on the events that occurred during the Kangaroo Court on the way to Kelowna on the 24 th  of April.  The names of the defendants have been changed to protect the innocent.  

Due to the skill and tenacity of the Public Defender, (You can’t handle the truth)  Chuck, five Twits had their charges dropped and were set free.  The others were not so fortunate.  They served their sentences and it is hoped that they learned from their indiscretions.

We would like to thank all the defendants for being good sports and Nick, Malcolm, Chuck, Craig and Falky  for their roles in the court.  A special thanks goes out to Lolly and Peewee for organizing the event.
