Just finished "This Boy" by Alan Johnson. An autobiography of a remarkably impoverished upbringing, one that was more Dickensian than post war.

Depends on what time of the year you are talking about. April to October, definitely not. But November to March, it beats working for a living.

Says more about Trojan than it does about Mantell. 


Why? I think it's an interesting concept for a novel. (you do know it's a novel and not an actual plot to kill her don't you :unsure:)

Oh dear, this seems to have got some of the more swivel eyed tories a bit frothy mouthed. They seem unable to distinguish between fact and fiction: http://www.independe...ll-9746747.html

Well I've just seen this incident and I reckon it was reckless and dangerous. If Russell had caught the ball first off he would have been braced for the impact. As it was he was falling forwards and not in any position to 'defend' himself. As soon as Russell spilt the ball Leuluai should have shown a duty of care instead of ploughing in regardless. These instances where a player is hit when they are not expecting it (e.g. after the ball has been passed) and are not in a position to brace themselves for impact can cause untold and needless damage IMO.

Watch it at full speed and tell me how he is supposed to not go "ploughing on regardless". It all just happens too fast for any evasive action. Matty Russell accepts it as an accident and Leuluai has apologised to him looking at twitter.
