Whites: Martijn, Desmond Ong, Fred, Chen Hong (c), Dan B, Rockstar, Raahol
Reds: Arijit, Rainer, Foo Cheong, Brendan (c), Poh Keng, Mohamed 2, Vivek
As I don't have a poll, the players who have played the most number of games over the last 6 months can be captain. That's Chen Hong for Whites, and Brendan for Reds. They can agree between themselves to swap players.
The thing to impress on all new players is that even if worst comes to worst, they should know at least half an hour before the game that they aren't going to make it, because that's as late as they should leave it to get to the game early.
Ironically, Jye SMSed me just before 4.30 pm to say he is available. As I didn't have anyone else, I didn't ask him to turn up as it would have left us with odd numbers. If Vivek had communicated his unavailability earlier, on this occasion, Jye could have played.
I was informed that the replacement gave Reds the edge. I suppose this is on the assumption that the replacement was better than either Vivek (who would have been new to the Saturday game) or Jye.
Add any comments about the game below.
