Dog eats Tovey's passport
Cardiff Blues back Jason Tovey will miss his side's Heineken Cup clash with French giants Toulon this weekend after his dog ate his passport.
The Western Mail reports that Tovey's eight-month-old labrador mauled it so badly it was deemed unusable. Blues officials feared there wasn’t enough time to get a new passport issued and as a result he will miss his side's high-profile trip to the Stade Mayol.
"Buster is always chewing things but usually it's my sock and shoes," said Tovey. "As soon as I saw the passport I thought I'd never get through airport security with it. I was dreading telling my team coach, I didn't think anyone would believe me."
