This head has a jack three inches from the ditch with the nearest bowl some five or six feet away – short of the jack. The head shows the situation after the red skipper has played his first bowl. In situation one, Readers have to offer three practical possibilities for the blue skipper to play with his first bowl for end no six. Situation two changes the situation to the 100th end with both the Team and Side scores close. The two previous bowls went into the ditch so the head remains unchanged from situation one. Readers have to decide what the blue skipper should play with his last bowl. (15/5/09)
