Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney have one strict rule for Wrexham stars going to Las Vegas for promotion treat

Still basking in the glow of their success, Wrexham's players are jetting off to Las Vegas for their post season jolly.
The trip was confirmed when the club's board advisor Shaun Harvey was asked about the club’s plans after their final match of the season against Torquay United.
“There is a trip to Las Vegas being mooted,” he said.
It comes after it was also revealed that Wrexham's players would receive a share of a huge £370,000 bonus too.
But as with any sort of work event, there are some rules, well, in this case, one rule, which Reynolds and McElhenney have laid down for the players heading out to the strip.
Top striker Paul Mullin said: "It became a thing where if we won the league, we’d get a holiday.
"So we’re off to Vegas. Ryan and Rob told us to leave our cards at home, they're sorting the lot.
"They sent us a full itinerary just now. Part of me doesn’t want to go, I might be dead by the end of it.
"But I’d never go to Vegas by me own accord, so I’m buzzing for it."
However, if the reaction to coverage of the club's open-top bus parade earlier this week is anything to go by, not everyone is so excited by the club's success.
Thousands of fans lined the streets of the Welsh city to watch on as their heroes passed by.
As well as the players, of course, the club's Hollywood owners, Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney, also joined the celebrations.
And the entire thing was shown on BBC News, with fans tuning in to see how it went.
But some felt the coverage was a little OTT.
Taking to social media to express their befuddlement at the whole situation, one viewer said: "Absolutely lost for words, BBC national news showing live coverage of Wrexham's open top bus parade?!"
Another asked: "The third story on the BBC news site right now is live coverage of Wrexham's open-top bus parade. I've never known the site to report any football celebrations, let alone a bus parade. But because Hollywood folk and Disney are involved, it's justified, isn't it?"
One person said: "Why the f**k are the BBC streaming Wrexham’s entire open top bus parade?"
While someone else quipped: "Can't be much news. BBC news 24 has wall to wall coverage of the Wrexham parade."
Come on, lads, let them have their moment.
