Good report nice and easy to follow.

I'm not sure why the Roman did not make more use of his heavy infantry in advancing and attacking, but he did need to put some support on their flank!

I think the Roman plan was to outflank the Carthaginian right, and then squish the Carth infantry with a simultaneous front and rear attack.
