West Ham captain pranks teammate with Candid Camera style ruse

West Ham United midfielder Declan Rice has once again proved he is an easy target for a wind-up after being pranked by teammate Mark Noble. Rice, who was hilariously tricked by Chelsea’s Mason Mount during his summer holiday, fell for a far more elaborate hoax at the hands of the Hammers’ captain. The 20-year-old had accompanied West Ham full-back Ryan Fredericks to a FIFA 20 event, but he was blissfully unaware that Noble and Betway Football had set him up …

It argued that the rules laid down by the FA are open-textured, and that different valid interpretations are possible within the broad ‘statutory’ limits. This is perfectly true – as the famous professor of jurisprudence H.L.A …
