Understandable. That's much shorter than "Tyson Fury, the Leeds United rugber".
Wonder how he would fare against this yokozuna

On pushing (no punching), I'd bet on yokozuna: The Gypsy King is a tall guy on long thin legs.

But we lead in rugby, right?

I think British science is cargo cult science: people who achieve success pat on the back and praise each other, so we do the second part and expect a miracle.

Apropos satellites, I wonder if this is true: 'We've bought the wrong satellites': UK tech gamble baffles experts
