Farmer Dan goes to Boston

  2. After paying his 8.50 entrance fee with a 10 note, Farmer Dan is given his 1.50 change in two coins. One of them is not a 1 coin, what denominations are they?
  3. During the match the ball is played upfield and Paul Ellender follows it by running towards the York Street end. When he arrives in the penalty area he is facing the Town End. How come?
