Not quite ('conning' is a verb form, but 'Captain's control' is a noun phrase).

It's a toughie. I continue picking words from the media that I've had to look up. Could be, also, that one of the wordplay synonyms might not be common knowledge down under (I'm not sure).

I hadn't! (It still looks like a spelling error, ha.)

Good job, Romsek ⭐

Lately, I've been seeing/hearing a number of unfamiliar words (eg: 'interregnum' and 'mewler'), in the media.
