Goggle it

World Rugby (aka the artist formerly known as the IRB) has recently announced that it is trialling “Rugby Goggles” in an effort to allow players who need to wear corrective lenses to do so safely while playing rugby.

The Rugby Goggles, manufactured by Italian company Raleri, have apparently undergone a series of rigorous tests designed to ensure that they are as safe as possible for use on the pitch.

Reports that there are also plans to trial post-match “Beer Goggles” appear wide of the mark, although an RFU spokesperson has confirmed that a proposal to introduce an England “rose-tinted” version of the Rugby Goggles is under consideration.
