Jones finds a lead for the Olympic trials

Thanks to TSN for the news:

Defending Canadian champion Jennifer Jones is adding some Olympic depth as she prepares for the December curling trials in Halifax.

The team announced Tuesday that Olympic bronze medallist and two-time world champion Georgina Wheatcroft will join the Scott Tournament of Hearts champions as lead.

Apparently Wheatcroft applied for the job and there was an interview process.
Very systematic, it seems.

Interesting to hear about the selection process that they used!

I did some poking around this past weekend, and I found out from an insider I know that:

(1) Jones cannot use an out-of-province player for the Scott, "team Canada" or no. And

(2) Each qualified team can change up to one player before the trials.
