The Irish Rugby Football Union have shocked the rugby world by announcing a ten-year plan in which they have outlined their idea to dramatically change the conditions of acquiring international tickets for their new Aviva Stadium.
With initial ticket prices for the Six Nations and major Autumn matches being set at a shocking minimum of 100 Euros each, the IRFU are looking into the possibility of progressing from monetary exchanges to actual 'arms and legs' by 2020.
"People often say when things cost a lot that they feel like they have paid an 'arm and a leg'," said IRFU spokesperson Conor Marsh. "We thought that perhaps, in light of the fact that people will feel like they are actually paying an arm and a leg for tickets to Irish rugby matches, we may as well go the whole hog and offer them the option to donate their actual limbs. The IRFU feel that with medical research advancing year by year, we could then go on and sell these limbs on to medical research institutions and increase funding for the Irish game and our wonderful Aviva Stadium. It's win - win for all."
