I tried it once, the following week, but that was a rather makeshift game, where we had a couple of new players, and we ended up swapping Nawal back to the same team as Raminder.
I'd rather the initiative to be on separate teams came from the players themselves.
Tonight, I put the brothers Daniel T and Edmund T on separate teams, but I checked with them first.
Sometimes, it takes time.
Daniel T1 and Edmund T have been on opposing sides a few times now.
The previous occasion we tried having Melvin and Kelvin on opposing teams, the game didn't go ahead due to a mix up over the booking.
Having brothers on opposing sides is still very rare in our games. ....
Rai today SMSed to say he doesn't need to be in the same team as Eric Y and Hail.
When players play regularly, there is a greater rapport between the regulars, and players don't need to be on the same team as old friends.
The rule now is:
As for brothers, we've had brothers on opposing sides a couple of times recently.
At Turf City on 24 December 2011, we had Raminder and Nawal on opposing sides:
Last night at East Coast, we finally had Kelvin Au and Melvin Au on opposing sides.
Both were good, close games. It helped that everyone playing was a regular.
