Rugby Prediction Pays Up

Last November, a few of us, at a delightful dinner, had a small wager on the Six Nations tournament 2010 as to who would win and who would win the wooden spoon; the winner? Step forward........

Here's the somewhat late email announcing it last week...

I do hope you are all well and soaking up the best that only our English summer can offer.

I am off on holiday tomorrow (not again, I hear you all cry), and have been doing some tidying up and, lo and behold, I found the wager we all participated in after the last Sunday Times Obolensky Lecture at One Aldwych (thanks again Alex – a proper night).
Well, rather like the Chilean miners, it might have taken some time, but it was definitely worth it in the end.
By correctly guessing France as Winners on the 6 Nations, and Italy as bottom placed, the Mystic Meg winner of the £90 pot is:

Our former Rt Honourable friend from Sittingbourne and Sheppey, Derek Wyatt!
Congratulations Del Boy – I will send you a cheque for the full amount, or alternatively will send it to the Miliband Boys to fight over who will win the popularity stakes (a paradox if ever I heard one), or perhaps you would prefer it sent to Asil Nadir to fund his fraud defence? Send me your address and I will dispatch!
Well done chaps – rugby football’s the winner.
