    Funnily enough, I've heard nothing but praise for a certain sabre competition this weekend. Reasonable fees for a high quality competition - great referees, great hall, so organised that fencers...

    Interesting to contrast with the new sabre World Class programme, where they have very much gone for youth. Will Deary is a 97 birthday and JJ and Rubin 96 birthdays.

    Something I've wondered about for a while now. I believe senior sabre rankings have included them since 1st November, 2013.

    Emphasises even more the raw deal that sabre got. At these average costs, 4 referees for 74 MS entrants + 38 WS averages out at under 9 per head. Even more frustrating with the self-reffing. Over...

    A 30% cut was stated in the format for the competition. It applied to most weapons apart from Mens Foil where the cut was lower. I'm guessing because a load of people tied on the same indicator.

    Final tableaux and final positions for MF/ME/WE only.

    Mens sabre still only shows last 64 d/es without results. Last I heard they had all d/e matches over 4 pistes as they only had 4 sabre refs.
