  • Go back for a biblical flower
  • Grab win now and then
  • Gun carried by hired criminal
  • Improv, in eye-catching series
  • Mars broadcast
  • Mess meals
  • Move ND along
  • Quite not right
  • Sounds like a nose job!
  • Tending to “bending”?

Answers to four of the above sent via PM.  I assume that's how you want it done, @Timothy Reddan-A'Blew

I guess so. I'm thinking it's going to be all over pretty quickly!😄

@Demonstone has just reminded me I was going to bump this. Yep, let's see if there's any stragglers out there, re-fired-up by his latest.😊

It seems I've missed a lot of quizzes during the break!!

Tim, is that you I heard complaining about @old55holding out on giving the answer in his quiz? 😉  And you've had this thread on the go for weeks and provided not a single clue!

I shall ponder your quiz later today. 

In the meantime could you identify the items @Demonstoneand @Mazer Rackhamhave correct and show the answer.

TIA

Fair call, Luci. Apologies. And thanks for the restraint in only saying 'complaining'!

I'm afraid @Demonstone and @Mazer Rackham have fully answered now. As has @mo64, and @Jjrogan was well on the way last week, but I've neglected him(?) since, like I've neglected this puzzle. Oops.

I suggest you count the number of clues, see if that suggests anything, have the biblical flower at number 23 (for a couple of reasons!) and also ask yourself how 25/9/21 might be referred to in an understated way. As demonstone says, the others might then start to fall in place?

Ooh, I'm feeling a bit @old55ish! 😄

I think I just solved 'old's' quiz so my brain is a bit too fried to tackle another one today.

Maybe you can show one answer to get me and others started?

Me, too, Luci! So my fried brain may mess with my response.

Anyway - and sorry if this is an 'egg-sucking-lesson-for-your-granny' - they're cryptic clues of the crossword variety. Do you do cryptics? If so, you'll know there are several different types of clue, so one answer won't necessarily help you with the others.

Maybe I'll go via my previous post and spell that out now. There are 23 clues: it's the size of an AFL team. So 'what we have here' is an AFL team (and what else but a Dees one?!), with a separate 24th member. And, being a team, i.e. of people, it's safe to assume the 24 clues are of names.

Who might be seen as a 24th 'member' of an AFL team? To answer that, for this team, back to its clue: How might what happened on '25/9/21' be 'understated' in that person's name? (Hint: In true cryptic fashion, two words can be made one, and vice versa)

Now, who is (was?) notionally the 23rd member of an AFL team? The medi-sub. Who has been a 'famous' ('singularly unfortunate'?) medi-sub, who is also 'number 23' in a second way? Here's how their clue works: Go back = back of 'go' = O / for = 'in place of' / a = A / biblical flower = biblical flow-er = biblical river = JORDAN; thus, 'O in place of A [in] JORDAN'.

Keep going, Luci, but let's PM on any more help. I love spreading the 'joy' of cryptics but I'm conscious of clogging the boards. There's no prizes left to be had; Gold was shared by @Demonstone and @Mazer Rackham - Demonstone would possibly have had it on his own, but he did a 'Peter Landy' to potential 'Ron Clarkes', only this time he then failed to catch Mazer Clarke - and @mo64 took Bronze. @Jjrogan didn't place but gets a Rising Star nomination.

Welcome back Luci.  Good to see your smiling avatar again!

Once you get a couple of the answers, all the others will fall into place.

That’s what you reckon

Firstly, congratulations on solving @old55's puzzle!!  I thought I had but it was only half right 😿

Thanks for the expansive clue.  It did occur to me that each was a cryptic clue for player names but didn't have time yesterday to think it through.  Not just saying that based on your latest post, as I am into cryptic crosswords and recognized the usual 'triggers'. You may recall with the 'roamin Bryan' puzzle we had a pm discussion about cryptic puzzles.

Anyway, I have solved the second one, I think.  Rather than go the 'early crow' like I did with old's puzzle thinking I have it, I'll pm it to you.

Unfortunately, I have a busy day so can't finish this or 'old's puzzle.  Will check in tonight to see the answers.

    TOUGH KENT'S TRAINING REPORT I journeyed out to Casey today and was fortunate enough to watch two quarters of match simulation. Here is a brief rundown of random occurrences/thoughts. First of all, there was no Jake Lever (ankle) or Joel Smith involved. AMW is still in rehab and was running strongly. It was Blue (Probables) v Red (Possibles) JvR was in blue. Ben Brown, T-Mac, Hibbo and Tom Sparrow were in red. Gus Brayshaw started at half back for blue and stayed there all game.

He’s moving incredibly well.  Some observations from a match sim drill that lasted about 15-20 mins. The purpose se
