Austin takes one for the team

Figure image
Austin Healey made a guest appearance at Leicester Tigers’ training ground this week to pay a forfeit for Sky Sports’ Soccer AM show.

At the start of the RBS 6 Nations Championship, Healey was invited into the Sky Sports studios and he tipped England to beat Wales, while agreeing to ‘Take one for the Team’ if his prediction proved incorrect.

One second-half Twickenham fightback later and Healey was being lined up to ‘Take one for the Team’ which involves allowing team-mates to fire footballs at you through a giant wooden target.

There was quite a queue when Austin arrived at Oval Park and, although he gave it his usual banter, Healey went strangely quiet as players including Andy Goode, Ian Humphreys and Johne Murphy lined up their shots.

Soccer AM is on Sky Sports 1 at 9am on Saturday.
