England captain's handicap drops but Aguerre returns to 10
Handicap changes in Argentina bring Ellerstina and La Dolfina level for the first time since 2009
THE ARGENTINE POLO ASSOCIATION has announced its end-of-season handicap changes. England captain Luke Tomlinson has moved down from eight goals to seven.
Following Ellerstina's triumph in the Argentine Open, Mariano Aguerre has had his handicap raised from nine to ten for the third time in his career. Aguerre has already reached the highest handicap possible in 1998 and 2005.
La Dolfina's David 'Pelon' Stirling has dropped from ten goals to nine, bringing the La Dolfina line-up's overall handicap down from the perfect 40. This means that if the team line-ups remain the same for 2013, both La Dolfina and Ellerstina will be 39-goal teams.
British player Ollie Cudmore has had his handicap raised from four to five, following a successful Argentine season.
