Creasing up

Tulkinghorn often feels a touch of sympathy for those partners and in-house lawyers who so bravely step forward and volunteer their life story for a profile in The Lawyer. Undoubtedly, ribbing from friends is par for the course. But pity Mark Roper-Drimie, the in-house lawyer at the English and Welsh Cricket Board. His profile in the 6 January edition of The Lawyer sported a large photo of him behind a wicket, cricket ball in hands. It turns out that the positioning of his hands was completely wrong for catching anything other than the attention of his friends and colleagues, who were more than happy to remind him that his technique obviously needs some work.
