iPhone : The Rowing Voice It is a good piece (and great to see space given) but a bit misleading, no, to say that GB got two golds in Linz in a sentence about Olympic qualification when they were both in Paralympic boats? (And why only say two bronze when women also won two?)

iPhone : I don’t think I’ve seen Nic Berry referee before but he’s rather good. Clear communicator, fair and runs the game well. That Aki tackle had to be a red card under the current regulations, which I find a bit too strict, but Berry handled it with sympathy #IREvSAM

iPhone : After writing in my Saturday Times sports column about my love of ObscureCricketStats, a reader sent this limerick:

“There once was a bowler named Clover
Who bowled sixteen wides in one over.
It had never been done
By a clergyman’s son
On a Tuesday, in August, at Dover.”
