Cardiff (Wales): England"s Ashes team has escaped a sex ban – as long as they stay off the booze.
The Daily Express quoted a team source as saying: “We"ve got no reason to believe sex affects performance, unlike a few too many beers. But if they do decide to have a few drinks, we may have to review the rules."
Former party-loving England star Phil Tufnell reckons the players will only turn to booze if they win. In the past, stars like all-rounder Flintoff, 31, “got a bit carried away" while away on tour.
But Tuffers, 43, said: “An Ashes series in your own country is probably the biggest game of cricket you will ever play in, so I don"t think the boys will be going off drinking."
Tail saves England
Although no longer involved in the England set-up, Tuffers is doing his best to help his fellow countrymen in their battle against the Aussies.
The former I"m A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here! champ has released a charity single, The Ashes Song, which sledges the men from Down Under.
Tuffers said: “If I can do my bit to help England, great. I got sledged back in my day, so it"s nice to give a bit back."
