DA Puzzle of the Round (8)

Discover the world of David Astle here.

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

DA has selected three new players from the one club to be clued. Remember, these clues rely on wordplay only, without any definition. Likewise, the level of difficulty climbs with each clue. Which club has been targeted, and who is the current trio?

1. Scrub in the UK? (5,8)

2. Eager to enter valley by a thoroughfare (5,7)

3. Brown flower pinched by topless urchin’s hound (5,6)


LAST WEEK’S SOLUTION: GIANTS: Adam Treloar [anag + oar], Rhys Palmer [anag around palm], Taylor Adams [US President #2 and #12]


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)
