Anyone watching SKYs coverage of Ldn Irish v Wasps will have seen
Graham Simmons mention a rumour that Clive Wright is on the verge
of buying Wigan Rugby League club. This is only a rumour, Nigel
Melville knew nothing about it certainly. Wright is, however, the
richest man in soccer, and probably British Sport itself (Soccer has
plenty of millionaires) so he has the money.
Apparently there is to be an announcement this week.
The SKY anchormen were bemused at this.
Any opinions on this development, or can anyone out there, especially
in League land, enlighten us as to what, if anything is going on.
