This is good

A British journalist claims to have tracked down four people on Interpol's "most wanted list" in one hour and 22 minutes.

Ian Cobain, of the Times, says he used widely available resources including electoral registers, internet search engines and commercial records.
One was even listed in the local telephone directory.
The Times says the fugitives' rapid discovery is likely to be a huge embarrassment to Interpol, which has been looking for them for several years

As you will all know British Rugby League’s Premier tournament, The Super League, started up again last weekend as we witnessed The Leeds Rhinos begin their defence of the title with an unconvincing win over a determined Hull KR side. It got me thinking because I’m a man who likes to gamble, and I particularly enjoy a bit of rugby league betting, whether or not Leeds can defend the super league trophy successfully. So I had a look on a gambling website (see link) to find out Leeds were evens with the Saints... Fair enough. But the same company have Wigan and Hull FC (not KR!) less likely to win that Warrington... You can back Wigan, who are led by the former Great Britain coach – Brian Noble, to win the regular season and the grand final (separate bets) at 10-1... This is Good value people. Backing Hull FC would get you a 14-1 return, which is also incredibly good value, given they are now under former New Zealand coach Peter Sharp, who knows what he is doing... All this while the consistently inconsistent Warrington Wolves are down to win at 13-2... I think if I was a Warrington fan I would bet on Wigan or Hull, or maybe even Bradford who are priced 10-1...
