Selection Problems
When the Selection Committee makes a decision by email, it appears in the minutes of the next face-to-face meeting. For example, in the most recent minutes here: there is a section headed "REVIEW OF DECISIONS TAKEN BETWEEN MEETINGS" Thus ...
Selection Problems
Gordon was at the Selection Committee where it was discussed, so I expect he participated in the discussion, and I assume he was aware that the Committee were expecting him to accept substitutes if it became necessary.

Selection Problems
Sorry, my previous post seems to have been widely misinterpreted. My point was that everybody commenting in this thread is just saying what they actually think. Nobody is doing anything to further their own interests. Sarah, for example, has tried to pour oil on troubled waters when it's against ...
Selection Problems
Regarding Bill's question about people commenting here having an interest: Tom Townsend's and David Gold's other halves were playing in the team that came third. Hence they should have encouraged the Brock team to feel aggrieved, thereby making it less likely that the two pairs in the ...
