J 16

16. Charny asks:  A knight of the emprise described above strikes his spurs and in his first course is wounded and disarms himself; and another puts on his harness and mounts his horse to joust in the place of him who was wounded with the agreement of the wounded man, even though he was not at all part of the emprise, but is only to aid those who had established the emprise. So he jousts so well that none of the home team in the judgment of all comes even close to him. Who will have the prize, he who jousted so well, or his master for whom he jousted, or whoever has jousted best among those holding the emprise next to him? What do you say?
