The planets align these next two weeks, with both major football codes staging their finals in sync. And so in salute to this once-only fluke, here’s a puzzle (and minor Storm challenge) to prepare for the big weekends on offer.
Can you figure out the words and phrases below, all of which commit the AFL infringement of holding the man?
Cleaning chore (6), for example, is dusting, as DUSTIN is held, a man of six letters. Just as pecking orders (6) is hierarchies (Archie). Or being more creative, What Friday is?! (6) = near Thursday.
See how many blokes you can muster, with exclamation marks indicating a more liberal approach. And feel free to add more men to the roll-call. (Though with liberal answers, try to be generous in your clues – as these fellas can be treacherous!)
Dock worker (5)
In pain (6)
Artery threat (6)
Messina mirage (6)
Infantile period (5)
Widely and randomly yell! (7)
Cooler national song! (6)
