Barkley's wedding crasher hell is over...

Wedding_crashersop_copyGood news for whoever is in charge of the England team, as star fly-half Olly Barkley is off the hook. At Aylesbury Crown Court, the Crown Prosecution Service dropped a charge of assault occasioning actual bodily harm at a wedding due to a lack of evidence.

Following the decision, Barkley said, "I am really pleased that I am now able to put this behind me. I refused to allow it to affect me on the pitch and hopefully my performances have demonstrated that. But now I am just happy to move on from it and do what I can to bring home some silverware this season."

"I have had so much support from my friends," he continued whilst not smashing a wedding cake with a hammer then kicking a bride on the bottom, "they have helped me keep focused." Barkley was of course not considered for this year's Six Nations tournament because of the impending court case. Who knows if he'd actually played things might have been very different.

Thanks. Hadn't thought of the image file. I'll have to shrink that, it seems.
