OPINION OF THE COURT

In this direct appeal from convictions for second-degree murder, robbery, and criminal conspiracy,*fn1 appellant contends that his statement was the product of an unnecessary delay between arrest and arraignment,*fn2 and that he was not given adequate warnings before a polygraph examination was administered. Neither of these arguments was reduced to writing in appellant's post-trial motions, as was required at the time of trial by Pa.R.Crim.P. 1123(a) and our decision in Commonwealth v. Blair, 460 Pa. 31, 33 n.1, 331 A.2d 213 (1975). Both issues have therefore been waived.

Judgments of sentence affirmed.
