We have always played that the Runners on Retainer Runners select the
pairings, ao I guess they are the attackers. Hmmm... but looking at my
handy dandy spoiler list I see that it says:
"The player who owns this Challenge may choose to defend the Objective
with his Runners instead of the Threat Rating on this card."
Sounds like they are the defenders.

We've been playing that it is the current Threat Rating. It really was
annoying when it took my 18/6/A6 Louie 'Da Bruiser. ;(

Nope. It says that you add it to it's threat rating, so a Challenge
without a Threat Rating doesn't have one to add to. I guess the
Runner could still be discarded, but that it wouldn't make the
challenge have a threat Rating.
