Friday Funnies - What does an Alternator do?

Friday Funnies - What does an Alternator do?

With the Piggiess vs Princesses clips we've been showing lately, the objective has been to find out who are the smarter bunch - the backs or the forwards.

One thing becomes apparent when watching this clip from the UK's show the Rugby Club though, and that is that it doesn't seem to be a backs/forwards thing.

When it comes to general knowledge, or more specifically in this case, knowledge of car parts, it's both the backs and the forwards of the Guinness Premiership who struggle to come up with solid answers.

While some players simply have no idea and admit it, others have a go at answering and in general fail miserably. Bob Casey is almost convincing with his matter of fact answer, while Harry Ellis comes up with an absolute shocker. Geordan Murphy's answer isn't far off that.

At the end we find some wise old heads coming up with it, but the question is, do you actually know what an alternator does? You will be the end of this clip.

I honestly had no idea! Not the easiest of questions, but it's safe to say, any football player would come up with worse answers.

This is an interesting trivia quizz.
I remember someone was moaning that rugby players in the amateurs days were absolute quizz masters, and now professional players just play video games if not playing rugby

Harry Ellis. I'm surprised he has the brain power to open his mouth.

On the Lions tour he asked someone (according to Tommy Bowe): 'Who's Nelson Mandella? Did he discover South Africa?'
