Amusing little story

Feeling better this morning. Been out and had a run and just about to have a bath at home and crack on with work again. It's pretty cold here and last night's rain prompting a fresh snowy offering on the tops of the mountains.

Was just catching up with my RSS feeds and came across this light-hearted little anecdote in an interview with Josh Lewsey, an England rugby player who played in the last World Cup and collected a winner's medal.

What is the funniest thing you have heard while playing for England? (Tom Pick, 15, Banbury)

It was probably during the 2003 World Cup final. The referee, Andre Watson, said: "I won't give a penalty at a scrum unless I can put my mortgage on it." After the fifth penalty against us, our hooker Steve Thompson turned round to Watson and said: "You must have a s*** house!"
