World Championship alternates

Sarah Reid, above, will join Eve Muirhead, Kelly Wood, Lorna Vevers and Annie Laird as Scotland's fifth player for the World Women’s Curling Championship in Swift Current, Saskatchewan, March 20-28. Jackie Lockhart dislocated her knee prior to the Columba Cream final on Sunday, and Annie Laird was brought into the team then. Sarah skipped her own team in the last four of the Scottish, losing in the semifinal.

Warwick Smith, David Smith, Craig Wilson and Ross Hepburn will have David Murdoch (below) sitting on the bench as their fifth player at the World Men’s Curling Championship in Cortina D'Ampezzo, April 3-11. The reigning world champion skip lost out in the semifinal of the Bruadar Scottish Championship on Saturday.
