Letter: Warning bells on phones.

Byline: S.T. VAUGHAN

PI'M amazed that jockeys have withdrawn their labour over mobile phones.

Surely the use of a phone while riding a horse must raise a few eyebrows!

What next -Beckham ringing his hairdresser from the dugout? Or what of Fash allegedly ringing Grobbelaar a few seasons ago?

I certainly feel the need for some hi-tech intervention on the pitch for referees, as many a decision is certainly suspect.

But phones in the saddlebag or in the shorts must be a no-no if we are to have fair play.
