DA Puzzle of the Round (7)

Discover the world of David Astle here.

But first, can you solve this week’s puzzle?

Here’s another trio of clues, pointing to current players from the one club. Keep in mind the clues are purely wordplay, with no definition. You’ll also find that the clues are ordered – in Brownlow style – from easy (1) to fiendish (3). Away you go.

1. Tamer lad belted rower (4,7)

2. Split sherry around tree (4,6)

3. Numbers 12 and 2 in the red, white and blue (6,5)



Three current players are hidden in DA’s wordplay. The entire trio hails from the one club, with clues arranged from tame to tough. Who’s up this week?

1. Old city comic (4,7)

2. Cookin’ coins for Spooner (5,6)

3. Ran a 107 metre dash (4,5)
