    It isn't just about points, but it is about incentives. For those who need points for qualification, they are going to prioritise those events that provide them. To my knowledge I don't think there...

    We're planning to take some of our fencers to Robben Island while they are at the Junior Commonwealths. Perhaps you could ask one of them after that for a view.

    Agreed. Selection at the moment is based on performance in England comps that very few Scots can/do attend. I'd also say that the SF Academy could also be made much more relevant to selection and...

    I'd argue that not much changes, but the game continues to improve and our understanding evolves. The problem seems to be that some move with the game at a very slow pace - and some even want to turn...

    I think focusing purely on the win/loss is unhelpful when developing talent. But you are right, look after the performance and the results will surely come.

    Anyone know what "discretion" means?

    What objective performance measures are being considered to inform these decisions?
