After much deliberation and consideration – because no answers were quite right – we are awarding the £10 to charity prize to Rob Newman on Red Rock for the invention of a hankelplate and grivvel although we did feel that looking for Claire’s pearl earring, sanding off Rioja stains and hiding from customs and excise while shaving off his beard ran a very close second.   The correct answer was that James was removing rust from the cockpit table support strut and the pillow was cushioning his head to ensure his bald patch didn’t get any larger!     So Rob, we will be donating to Tag Rugby Trust via their Justgiving page   Thanks to all who took part – we had a lot of laughs.
