... Sam ... is in. It's getting late, so I'll just go ahead and finalise line ups, colours and captains.
Today's line ups:
Whites: Richard Coombes, Timmy, Mark Docherty, Nordin, Nick C (c), Jan-Vincent, Conor, Sam Reds: Brendan, Kelvin Au, Jon Stratton, Simon Carter, Jake, Chen Hong, Rockstar, Jason Barker (c)
For Team 1, Timmy and Richard are more regular at The Grandstand, but Nick has played more overall in the current 6 month period (18 to 17 each for Timmy and Richard) as well as since I first started keeping records in January 2009 (129 to 115 and 29 respectively, so Nick can be captain.
For Team 2, Brendan (33 games over the current 6 month period) has opted out as team selector/captain, so that leaves us with Kelvin Au on 29 games over the current 6 month period in total. However, Kelvin is not a Saturday regular, so that leaves us with Jason Barker, with 21 games over the current 6 month period as captain.
Bring both colours in case captains agree to make any changes before or during the game.
$2 credit to Rockstar for a first report. $1 credit to each of Nick and Jason as team captains.
Whites had 2 Saturday regulars, 2 semi-regulars, 1 who plays occasionally on Saturday and 3 playing on Saturday for the first time (although Mark had played in 4 other games before and Conor once before on Sunday). They had no recognised defender.
Reds had more regulars, and, at Brendan's request, a couple of recognised defenders.
No way I (or anyone) could have predicted the outcome.
