QUOTES OF THE WEEK
Saturday 28 June 1997
n It's grass, it's open air, that's the way it is. Johnny Perkins, All England club spokesman, stands firm on the Wimbledon status quo.
n Life doesn't get any better than this. Matt Dawson, Lions' scorer of the Test-turning try against South Africa.
n The finest performance by a midweek team I've ever seen. Fran Cotton, Lions tour manager, after the 52-30 win over Free State.
n It's just total rugby. Nigel Redman, Lions captain, after his side ran in seven tries against Free State.
n You'll never see tries like that again. Helgard Muller, Free State captain.
n The great thing is that we're getting a great opportunity to learn, and my notebook is full. Matthew Elliott, Bradford coach, on rugby league's uneven World Club Championship.
n My wife hits harder than him. Terry O'Connor, Wigan forward, plays down his brawl with Brisbane Bronco's Gordon Tallis.
n Paul Ince always tells me he wants to stay in Italy with us, but then he goes home to his wife and doesn't have the courage to say the same to her. Massimo Moratti, president of Internazionale, on the Ince transfer saga.
n I wasn't there when he killed the guy, but shit, if the guy got killed he was probably doing something he shouldn't have been doing. Mike Tyson, in Las Vegas to fight Evander Holyfield, on his manager Don King, who served four years for beating a man to death.
