    Hence the popularity of wearing gumboots in the Shaky Isles.

    Getting back on topic. This is fucked. The coach should be fired.
    If it was a dog everyone would be losing their shit

    Sorry what exactly was so horrific about the video? Looks like any other bunch of newby's trying to manhandle sheep.

    Nothing to it. They get rougher treatment getting sheared.

    I thought they were being too tentative and letting the sheep get away with murder, I hope the reporter doesn't see any footage of a shearing shed or an abattoir.

    Very unsympathetic there chaps. Not a bleeding heart among you - except for jono.

    jono; if that had been a pack of dogs instead of a mob of sheep, the only people "losing their shit" would have been the ones learning what it is to be "mauled".
