Adrian Morley is a professional Rugby League footballer. A Great Britain and England International prop forward, he previously played for Leeds with whom he won the 1999 Challenge Cup, Australia's Sydney Roosters with whom he won the 2002 NRL Premiership, Bradford Bulls with whom he won 2005's Super League and Warrington Wolves with whom he won the 2009, 2010 and 2012 Challenge Cups. Considered a LEGEND by supporters of all the clubs he played for, its fair to say he wasn't afraid to "get stuck in". Infamous for not staying on the field very long when Great Britain played Australia at Wigan back in 2003 (12 seconds) 

He is currently playing for Salford Red Devils in Super League.

Austin Knight began his career whilst still attending school, during holidays he regularly travelled around the UK with an act called the BROOKLYN CLOWNS which was based at the former Belle Vue leisure park at Manchester. 

Having caused much havoc in the classroom by imitating teachers, a school friend made the suggestion that this talent should be taken up professionally. Rehearsals duly commenced and Austin made his debut at a local pub, at the tender age of 16, performing vocal impressions of the comedy icons of the seventies era and subsequently 'died a death'. 

This did not deter him however and he progressed onto writing many comedy scripts, both for TV & Radio. His writing career commenced by compiling sketches for people such as Tommy Cooper and Les Dawson.

Today, Austin concentrates full time as an after-dinner speaker / comedian and is able to work either super clean or more adult, depending on what the audience requires.
