You're all wrong. The best sporting ending ever is:
"There's people on the pitch! They think its all over.... IT IS NOW!"

So very nearly it was when Henry Cooper knocked down Cassius Clay aka Mohammed Ali.

Cassius was saved by the bell and went on to win, but by heck it was close.
Kicks and scrums and ruck and roll.....Is all my brain and body need!

"This is the one..............etc" with squeaky in the back ground screaming.

I have this on my alarm clock (sad but true) and it remains a wonderful way to greet the day.
A programmable alarm clock? What a brilliant idea.
Nope not programmable it was just the clip on the alarm clock. It came from the RFU shop and was a rugby ball space. To turn it off you had to throw it at a wall or such. Sadly As I have smashed must of our room with the item Mrs spike isn't as keen on the clock as I am. :smt017

However the idea of a programmable alarm clock shows great, might have to work on that a bit.

Can I just add for sporting ending the post match interview with Johnno after the NZ game at HQ in the build up to the 2003 RWC.

It's not the winning or losing but the taking apart which matters.
