Don't see much point squabbling about this, but my mail was that Cyril told the Bummers that he absolutely wanted to go to the Dawks and would be very, very snarkey otherwise. Not sure if he told them he'd sit out his first year though! Whatever, it was enough to deter them. (I reckon Heppell did the same in reverse btw)
I trust Maurice Jnr should be ours, but never trust the Dawks.
