    and i stand by that as the situation was entirely diferent to any laws.If you decide to ignore law 39.1 and allow team to play a player short ,they get no extra bowls ,which as isaid is nonsense,why is it that clubs keep deciding to ignore the laws because it does not suit them,if you aredue to play a club triples comp and you cannot even get 3players there you should forfeit the game end of story,,And a certain top umpire agreed with me.”my thoughts exactly” i would not play either

    Guess what.
    Yesterday morning there were five league games in the book each one Triples.
    Three out of the ten teams turned up short, one with only one player and two with two players.
    Members are getting well and truly p***** off.

    I did play in one game when the team short had an extra bowl. We lost and all thought it was easier to have 3 bowls than 2? We felt as if we had been mugged to be honest, only happen the once however. My feeling is, if a team turns up one short, and cannot get a replacement within a reasonable time they should forfeit the game.

    Asolate. That really is bad, i'd be pi--sed off too.

    Yesterday morning the same thing happened again. Players were an ex County President and an Atherley lead. We lost 10 14 but as this was the second time they had played short they lost 33% of their score leaving us with a 10 9.33 win and the two league points.

    Will see how many turn up tonight.

    Now that's better losing the 33%. Did you feel it was a fair game buddy?

    It was an enjoyable game only because I knew and respect both of the opponents.
    When your skip has two bowls and the other skip has four bowls it is hardly fair!

    We have a domestic rule for triples league when one player short: the pair have their original 3 bowls each, and the triple keep their original 3 bowls each, and the front end play in the following order (team A of 2 versus team B of 3):
    A1B1B2A1B1B2A1B1B2 then A3B3A3B3A3B3 (or vice versa depending on who won end).

    Needless to say the 9 bowl team always wins
    I know what you're thinking. The face is familiar. Perhaps you've seen me on tv ???

    Nice to see that you have adapted a Federation Law for missing players. I too fail to comprehend why being a player short means you are allowed extra bowls
