The Doctor says Harris' sickness is related to having a bad side.

Thank you for flying Marwan Hot Air. Please fasten your seatbelts as we are expecting plenty of turbulence during the trip.
Sould we encounter any problems in this one prop aircraft (it was a two prop version but one has dropped out/got damaged or is no longer working) there are plenty of emergency exits. In fact, the chief engineer will personaLly guide you to the exit.
We would like to stress that the assistant pilot is doing a fine job in the circumstances of having only just qualified to take the controls. His three crashes in Wales were not really his fault.

In the event of a sudden loss of pressure, oxygen masks will drop down unless your surname is Chase or Hock, we are sure that oxygen deprivation to the brain will not affect them in any way.

Some people seem to have missed what Wigan are up to here, this isn't about trying to get Londoners to take a two hour train journey to Wigan after they have been amazed at watching a Rugby League game live.


This is about sponsorship. The big sponsors are London based, getting these guys to come north to experience rugby league live and show them what we have to offer is a tough task. So Lenighan has decide to do it the other way around, we take the game to them. Why do you think this is being kicked off where it is.


This is a business move not a sporting move.


Why have Wigan been the opponent for the last two years in London Skolars Capital Challenge pre-season game? Because it is held within walking distance of the financial institutions based in the City of London and the pre-match lunch presents plenty of networking opportunities. Clearly, Wigan see potential in this approach and are prepared to invest the revenue they would lose from not hosting a game at the DW, in anticipation of gaining a greater long-term return in terms of exposure and sponsorship.

As a slight aside, "The new academy side will play in blue and yellow, the colours of Hull city council", that's nice, I wonder if the Allams will consider a new colour scheme for theHull Tigers' kit in recognition of Hull City Council's colours..

Seems fair, Warrington get an exciting winger who was one of the best products from Hull's academy and in return the new side gets to play in Warrington's colours.
