But first, can you solve this week’s puzzle?
How weird’s this? There’s a quick-handed player running around whose first name is a team-mate’s surname. Who is he? (While I reckon this fluke is unique, here’s a test to make sure you found the right bloke: mix the last three letters of his first name with the first three of his surname, and you reveal what the same club’s ex-major sponsor dealt in.)
DA Puzzle (17) solution: GOT + IN + THE + MAGPIES = EIGHT-POINT GAMES (and not TOP-EIGHT ENIGMAS as Tails so eloquently suggested!)
