Congrats to Aggers. Does anyone remember RLs original cricket commentator Terry Harris? I was fortunate to be alongside him for Leicestershires Benson and Hedges cup final win against Essex in the mid 80s along with John Rawling and Ralph Dellor. Terry - unbeknown to us at the time - was in the final stages of illness.
