The Confusion (from the 9/10th of October)

24 down: Extra brimstone mainly built up (4)

So how does this one work?

14 down: Eels’ average speed split count, we hear (10)

Here, I’ve got average speed split count, we hear = par rate split matter, we hear = par ra matta = Parramatta = Eels.

But does matter = count work in legal contexts? As in “on the matter of…” or “on the count of…”? Is that the match?

  1. 24D: Brimstone = Sulphur -> mainly = SULP, built up = PLUS = Extra

    14D: If something counts, it matters. eg this game counts as it is worth four premiership points …

  2. Completely missed the SULPHUR = BRIMSTONE connection. Thanks Haiku.

    And thanks for the 14D pointer.
