Well it's getting close again. The list is up for our first practice game on the 5th of October.

I've made it clear that I definitely CAN'T play third or skip. I just can't spend that much time on my feet. I've got to play lead or second so I can put my bowls down then sit down and rest.

All I've got to do now is play OK in the practices to convince any selectors that see me with my magic stick that I'm capable of playing at all!
