Turns out... my daft mistake. Variables defined before the for-each loop
which were referenced within the loop worked fine, but of course they're
not visible to code in a different template. Converted to passing a
parameter and its fine.

I realise that this code is not the most efficient, but at present the
output I'm trying to achieve requires me to iterate over the two results
nodesets, and while doing so, to iterate over each of the team nodesets
and while doing *that* to iterate over the teamPlayer nodesets. It's a bit
of a mess at the moment, but it works... given the state my brain is in,
I'm actually quite impressed that I'm not getting a stack trace ;)
