England's chairman of selectors, Ted Dexter, hit the nail on the head this week when he emerged from discussions about the mother country's disastrous tour of India to announce that the board would be looking at the side's dress code and appearance.

It may also have spoiled his dream to turn professional next year.

On Friday, Quinten took his case to the Supreme Court seeking an injunction so be could compete in the state championships at Brunswick. His legal counsel, Malcolm Speed, told Mr Justice Gobbo there would be only one 1993 title and it could lead Quinten to the Australian championships and then to world competition. Documents lodged with the court told how Quinten was banned from the sport on 13 October 1991 after spitting on a competitor's mother.
