Annoying Rugby Noise

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Not that its annoying, its just annoying that I can't find it!

    Can anyone tell me what the siren is that sounds before a match, most notably in the RWC 2007, and lately in the Commonwealth Games. It sounds like a kind of Mexican trumpet, and everyone cheers afterwards!

    Any help? I know its a bit vague :S
  2. Anybody got this before I pay 79 pence for a 6 second track!?
  3. If it is what I think you are talking about the sound you are hearing is, in some places, a the hand "hooter thingy". They use it in the 7's on the IRB tour and used it in the CG's to signal the end of the match to the referee.
