THE 18 SEMI-FINALISTS who were named early this morning at The Crane, St Philip made their way to the National Cultural Foundation to sign contracts and draw for positions today.

It will be a mixed bag when they do battle at the National Stadium on Friday night with seven women, two former monarchs, four veterans, some young blood and familiar faces.
