Thanks for the year everyone. That caps off another season of fine debating. Since there's been some speculation as to who I am, allow me to verify that I'm not Chris Bisset, but I am someone you all know very, very well. Just remember that often people are not who they claim to be (or, more...
I presume that the Archdale 1sts are as such:
- Kaity Crowe (Abbottsleigh)
- Sophie Large (SCEGGS)

Seb Rees (Newington)
Henri King (Riverview)
