Predicted that the Armistead Defence would be the likely option given it’s track record.

As to whether they can make it work in either or both cases remains to be seen as whilst Mr Fuller provides some plausible grounds in the Groves case; he also exposes a key weakness in the defence. Namely, the reference to her AUS coach’s number …… when the fact is that she was NOT training with him at that time but rather with a US squad. This exposes them to the question of them NOT providing correct or updated data to the testers.
