The scrum half, who plays for the Castleford Tigers, posed with the Leader’s Shield for an Instagram snap, when fans noticed the two lines on the table to his left
SCRUM half Tom Holmes poses in the dressing room with a trophy — and sparks a drugs riddle.
His Castleford Tigers beat Wakefield 45-20 to win rugby league Leader’s Shield.
However, after further inspection it was revealed not to be drugged at all but actually two scratches in the surface.
As Tom, 21, posted this picture on Twitter, fans pointed out what looked like two white lines on a table next, with elmojo2 joking: “Congrats enjoy your coke!”
And Jordan Boon added: “Imagine not noticing that beak on your picture… Silly b***ard.”
But a Tigers spokeswoman said: “its scratches in the wood.”
The team is not the only ones who have fallen foul of innocent white lines being mistaken for something more sinister.
Reality TV star Kim Kardashian caused huge speculation after posing for a selfie with two lines apparently on a workshop behind her – which was actually the marble.
Yesterday Tom, 21, posed with a brush and paint tins, joking: “Better fill in this chip in the wood for when we win our next trophy.”
