But first, can you solve this week’s puzzle?
Time for some code-cracking 101 this week. Can you identify this bloke, head and shoulders above most current players?
Last week’s question and answer:
This week suits master manipulatora. Changing the right letter per word, can you join the new combo to spell a current AFL player? DAM + INHALE, say, can be DAV + IDHALE = Hawthorn’s DAVID HALE. Along with David, these next eight players have something in common.
1. JET + SEX + BITE
2. DANCE + LEER + REST
3. LIKE + MUG + LANE
4. SHAM + SHAM + PEON
5. GAY + NET + CAMS
6. HURT + ZIP + PEST
7. BREAD + AND + BITE + CROWS
8. COURSE + DAY + DUMP + SKY
Solution: Nine Queenslanders: David Hale (Hawks), Jesse White (Swans), Daniel Merrett (Lions), Luke McGuane (Tigers), Shaun Hampson (Blues), Kurt Tippett (Crows), Brendan Whitecross (Hawks), Courtenay Dempsey (Bombers)
