Penis-biting rugby player!

A rugby player inspired a hilarious animation after accusations he bit a rival's bits.

Cape Town - The great exodus out of Port Elizabeth has continued with the news that Argentine scrumhalf Nicolas Vergallo will leave the Kings.

EPRU President Cheeky Watson wished Vergallo well with his new contract with Lyon in France, which was confirmed on Tuesday.

“I know that Vergallo has strong aspirations to play international rugby for the Pumas. Many of his former team-mates from Argentina play in the French and European competitions, and the move to Lyon was therefore a sensible option in lieu of him wanting to again represent his country,” Watson said. 

Lyon currently top the Pro D2 league, the second level in France's professional league system.

Vergallo joins Cornell du Preez, Daniel Adongo, Waylon Murray, Bandise Maku, Jacques Engelbrecht, David Bulbring, SP Marais, Wesley Dunlop, Dimitri Catrakilis and Director of Rugby Alan Solomons - among others - to have left the Kings since the completion of this year's Super Rugby tournament.
