    Can't see any reason not to go for the first 5.

    Thanks again Barry. If the selectors read these graphs then I am sure they will find them very useful.

    It is an easy choice of the first 4 spots. The first three are Irina, Arianne and Giang (in no particular order). Emma is in a clear 4-th position.

    The choice of the 5-th player is not easy. I would choose Heather Richards, then Emma will move to the 5-th position.

    It's a shame Heather isn't eligible for selection. She was recently transferred to Australia and since she transferred we have tried to find out whether she needs to pay a transfer fee to represent us immediately, only to be met with nonsensical responses followed by silence from FIDE, as a result of the shambolic state of the FIDE regulations. Be that as it may, Heather could have applied on a provisional basis.
