An unhappy retirement

Martin_johnsonPoor Rugby World Cup star Martin Johnson. You’d have thought that Wasps would let his Leicester side win the Zurich Premiership final for his last ever game.

TS watched the sorry story unfold in a spiffing executive box, in the company of Systems Union chief Paul Coleman. But his thoughts were elsewhere, as instead of watching the earlier wild-card game between Saracens and Gloucester, we caught him watching his beloved West Ham United in action against Ipswich.

Coleman also pondered the strange rules surrounding the new AIM indices that were introduced this week. Apparently Systems Union is ranked at 32 in the AIM50, but only 42 in the AIM100. This is, he said, because non-UK listers are included in the ‘100’.

It’s enough to make you choke on your prawn sandwich.
