    For information the MF NIF is 520 and the WF NIF is 310.

    That means that for the WF the qualification level for the Euros is L16 rather than L32 (as per the selection document)

    I actually agree with Baldric. It doesn't bother me greatly, but wearing stripes when you haven't been selected to travel abroad to 'something' is a bit of an affectation. Strangely I am not so...

    I think it comes down to the old army term of earning your stripes to corporal and sergeant. It just so happens that we use stripes on HC and GBR kit.

    Scottish Independence Referendum

    I would say Cameron is the one introducing delaying tactics. The pledge was to a Scottish timetable. There was no mention of a link to English reform. Cameron is running scared of UKIP an thinks he...

  11. Stressful, under-pressure fencing?

    Firstly no competition is unimportant when you are on the piste. So level of stress and supposed importance do not correlate.

    I know for a fact that the top 5 selected fencers in MF and WF were sent their selection letters yesterday. I cannot confirm the Sabre and Epee, as I am only a foil selector but I presume so.
