YOU'VE BEEN WARNERED

Things you didn't really want to know
Rob's a tad more cheerful than he was when the implications of his broken bones first began to sink in. On the plus side he doesn't need a plate, he'll soon get a short pot and he'll be out of plaster in a month. On the minus side all his MX mates (who make jigsaws of their skeletons for a hobby) are only too happy to tell him he won't be fully recovered for months.

He'll be gutted not to be competitive at Fort William, but there are worse things when you're in plaster up to your bollocks.

"I can't sit on the khazi without putting my foot up on a bucket," says Rob. And invites us into the bathroom to prove it.

"Otherwise it cuts yer nads off."

We see, we see, we say. Steve puts his camera away in a marked manner.

"Of course the good thing about plaster is that you don't have to worry about baths and showers and all that."

Says Rob. And he laughs the big fat Warner laugh.
