    Andy Rice is a founding partner of Yellowwood Future Architects, a marketing strategy consultancy. In his other lives, he is the southern hemisphere's only supporter of Cambridge United Football Club, and was once upon a time the South African National Spoofing Champion. He has played football at Wembley and cricket at Lord's within the same weekend, but troubled the scorer on neither occasion. Things could only go up from here.

The petrol price will rise by 4c a litre (for 93 unleaded petrol and lead-replacement petrol) and 5c a litre (for 95 unleaded petrol and lead-replacement petrol), the energy department announced on Friday.
