Do you want to get married and live happily ever after in our blue and white wonderland? Joe, DA1 RE OLIVIA (L&B 21/08) Damn those sexist Gooners! Fit Spurs lad needs help with ironing and golf club cleaning. Spurs Lad, HA1 GLAD to see Usain Bolt is considering long jump as well as sprints. If he won Olympic Gold and got world records in 100m, 200m, 100m relay, 110m hurdles, long jump and triple jump hed be on par with Michael Phelps! Dan, SM6 THANK-YOU West Ham, for another great day at Three Point Park. SmugSpur, N5 PONTING is a superb champion and a graceful loser. Is that not what cricket is all about Pom lags?!

See thisislondon.co.uk/lite Evans knows rivals want to nail Quins Vettel title challenge blown out by engine SEBASTIAN VETTEL has been told his dream of beating Jenson Button to the F1 world title will likely go up in a cloud of smoke. The Red Bull driver is 25 points behind Button in the standings with six races to go, but suffered two engine blow-outs at the European Grand Prix at the weekend. And he knows that under the current rules, if he is forced to use more than eight engines this season he will suffer a race-ruining 10-place grid penalty in every remaining event. And Red Bull boss Christian Horner admitted the German is likely to suffer more mechanical issues. Weve had four engines failures with Vettel and it is almost inevitable that we will have an engine penalty somewhere, which is very frustrating, he said. We will just need to think strategically for the right time to take that penalty. NICK EVANS says he is prepared to take some verbal abuse after being caught up in the Harlequins Blood- gate scandal. The fly-half was the man who came back onto the pitch in the closing stages of last seasons HeinekenCupquarter-finalagainst Leinster when Tom Williams went off with a fake blood injury. The incident led to the departure of coach Dean Richards and physio Steph Brennan, while Williams himself was also banned. And Evans is expecting stick from opposition players and fans when the new season kicks-off at the start of September. Ill look forward to the sledging -- it will be like cricket, the New Zealander explained. I was expecting a bit during our first pre-season game in Edinburgh but we didnt get much. ImprettysuretheEnglishcrowd wont be so forgiving at places like Gloucester or Bath. We dont have any Irish teams in our Heineken Cup pool so we wont be getting problems from them! Harlequins have escaped further punishment from the RFU, despite admit- ting four other fake blood incidents. Disciplinary officer Judge Jeff Blackett said: It is apparent from evi- dence provided by players who described practices in other teams in which they have played, that Harlequins is not the only club which may have been guilty of inappropriate behaviour of a similar kind. Meanwhile, former Scotland coach Ian McGeechan (inset) has insisted he has not spoken to Quins about replacing Richards at the Stoop helm. In the meantime, John Kingston will continue as head coach, assistedbyColinOsborneandTony Diprose. Kingston said: Im confident that Deans absence will not impact on the fortunes of the side.
