    New Zealand bowlers in match-fixing scandal.



    From Yahoo.

    Disgraceful IMHO.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "I don't believe a word of Pietersen's book, but then I don't believe a word anyone else has said either."
    - Simon Barnes renders further comment on KP's autobiography superfluous in a sentence

    "They bring in their hot shot lawyers. What do we do? Hire a QC? It's just bull****," Lawson told the news agency on Friday.
    Hahahaha, his plan to "just deny everything" strikes me as an absolutely sound idea as well, what a wonderful sounding chap.

    Gary Lawson is a bit of a ****, all told. Was in and out of the NZ teams due to having a crack at the administrators. He's also been waging a war against NZ Thoroughbred Racing after his wife, jockey Judy Lawson was left in hospital for months with head injuries after a fall at a racecourse, so he's had other things on his mind for the last few years. But he would have come out with his abrasive comments regardless of his wife's accident - he's just that kind of person.

    And why would a NZ team throw a match when in all likelihood we probably just choked as usual anyway.

    I didn't know there was money to be made in throwing bowls matches.
