  91. 91. • The most cynical stretching of the laws took place in the much quieter surroundings of Worcester, when Brian Rose, captaining Somerset did something that infuriated the spectators. • Somerset travelled to Worcester knowing fully well that under the rules of the competition they would qualify for the quarter- finals as long as they did not lose by a heavy margin. Even if they won, Worcester (and Glamorgan, who were seemingly assured of an easy win over Minor Counties South) could only finish on the same number of points as Somerset; they needed a conclusive victory to overtake Somerset by virtue of a superior strike rate. • Rose realised that what he was planning was likely to cause an outcry, and checked with Donald Carr, the secretary of the Test and County Cricket Board (the forerunner of the English and Wales Cricket Board), whether it was legal. The reply came that was while it was within the laws as they stood, it was certainly against their spirit and that there would be ‘repercussions”. In the month following this incident the editor of Wisden Cricket Monthly, David Firth, wrote that he hoped that the events at New Road had restored some sanity to the game. He famously went on to write, "I have been waiting, with some trepidation, with six runs needed off the final ball and a lot of money at stake, the bowler informs the umpire of a change of action and rolls the ball along the ground. Maybe this dreadful vision will now vanish." Sadly for Firth and the world of cricket, 20 months later Greg Chappell did just that at Melbourne. What did Brian Rose do? +15/-10

He could hurt you equally from either wing—hell, he could hurt you from the hot-dog stand—but we just wanted to vary the look. And if he was on the box, we doubled with a big guy. • The other rule was, any time he went by you, you had to nail him. If he was coming off a screen, nail him. We didn’t want to be dirty—I know some people thought we were—but we had to make contact and be very physical.” • Chuck Daly, head coach of the Detroit Pistons 1988 is also credited with the invention of __________.

  108. 108. • ) Lord John Douglas was a Scottish nobleman known for his outspoken atheism. In March 1895, he was areested and sued for criminal libel by Oscar Wilde whom he had publically accused of posing as a somnodite. Libel charges could be bought as homosexuality was a crime then. He made the allegation because he was angered by Wilde’s apparent ongoing homosexual relatioship with his son, Lord Alfred Douglas. Douglas’ lawyers portrayed Wilde as a vicious older man who seduced young boys into a life of degenerate homosexuality. Wilde dropped the libel charges when Douglas’ lawyers informed the court that they intended to call several male prostitutes as witnesses to testify that they had sex with Wilde. In accordance with the Libel Act 1843, proving the truth of an accusation and a public interest in its exposure was considered as a defense against a libel charge, and Wilde’s lawyers concluded that the prostitutes’ testimony was likely to do that. • Douglas then won a counterclaim against Wilde for the considerable expenses he had incurred on lawyers and private investigators in order to prepare his defense. Wilde was left bankrupt, his assets seized and sold at an auction to pay the claim. Douglas then sent the evidence to Scotland Yard, which resulted in charges of sodomy and “gross indecency” against Wilde, who was convicted and sentenced to two years’ hard labour. His reputation destroyed. Wilde went into exile in France and died at the Hotel d’Alsace in Paris. • But, it is for something that a certain John Chambers did in 1865 and gained relevance ten years later which he, Lord John Douglas endorsed that he finds a mention in this sports quiz.
