I am an AFL star currently on target.My first name is a footy term.My surname when scrambled reveals what a solid hit-out achieves – or perhaps identifies gear stewards preparing boots for battle.Who am I?

Solution to DA’s Clue of the Round (19): No nibbles last week, probably due to the sneaky instructions. When the letters AN E are stirred into (James) HIRD, then (Neale) DANIHER appears.


  1. Andrew Fithall says

    Yes. Go Eagles.

  2. Settle down, Andrew. Not too many clues! (I’m proud to day I got it without your help.)

    Couldn’t crack last week though. Beaten by the “AN” trick.

  3. Add a pair of drinks to this name and you get a bright defender.

    I figured ‘sneaky’ meant something but couldn’t get it either. I did note the similarities between Bailey and Laidley though.

  4. Add a pair of drinks – the what? Not sure if I grasp the challenge, Dinahcat.

    Mark Lecrasginale?

  5. Two teas. Sorry, should have said ‘sounds like a pair of drinks.’

  6. That would be scarleTT –

    Nice, working both ends of the park.
