Although very well meaning (after the pathetic excuse for an 8 board team that was Slough Sharks this season) can't help but feel the 'solution' has gone too far to penalise teams who default through no fault of their own.

2 default points for a player whose car breaks down or gets stuck on the train seems harsh.

Also the proviso that only one default is incurred if arbiter is notified in advance is all very well but could cause lots of gamesmanship with the women's board, with teams leaving it until the very last moment in the hope that opponents will default first, and they won't actually have to name their player.

Personally i much prefer the financial compensatory penalties route.

The two default points rule is in fact unchanged from the 2007/2008 season.

Ah sorry. Must have misunderstood it then.

Reading it, it seems like a match starts 2-0 if there's an unplanned default. Obviously I'm wrong.
