Weatherwax Cup, Division 1

Postby weatherwax » Wed Jul 05, 2023 7:48 pm

Week 1
Tuesday 11th, Thursday 13th and Saturday 15th July 2023
Kalinga Knights vs Wickers Warriors
Ashgrove Astronauts vs FlyingBTUkInd
Absolute Madness vs Legend Killers
Red’s Pups have a bye this week.

Please send out your challenges for the whole week in good time. Normally the home team will issue the challenges, but either team can do it, so if you are playing away and don't receive the challenges by the weekend, please send them yourself.

Good luck, everyone, and have fun.

Is no-one going to publish their teams for this week's games?

Is it mandatory Liz? Can't we keep it as a surprise and just ensure the lineup for the 2nd & 3rd match is same as the 1st match? Don't want to leak the combination.. ;)

It wasn't part of the original rules, but became common practice during the first season. It's another small feature that helps to bring the game a bit closer to a real life first class match, so it has been written into the rules for this season. We have been flexible about it, though, and if it is not a problem for the other teams in div.1 I am not going to be pedantic about it.

Most of the teams in div.2 have followed the tradition. My team (in div.2) has been posted in this format:
Wyrd Sisters XI vs Falshing Lights
Haydon
Downes
Bailey (wk)
Irvine
Benjamin
Clarke RM
Raguraman RFS (cap)
Creighton RM
Khokhar LMF
Aftab LFS
Lawrence RM
But the format is not stipulated, so it can be just a list of names in any order.
