    have heard a lot about Wilfred Rhodes, so voted for him. But very very difficult to rate players one has never seen against each other, IMHO.

    Went for Faulkner - disappointed however that Armstrong isn't going to get in. He was a dominant player of his day and a very handy slow bowler as well as a great batsman.

    Hardest poll so far, tough choice between Faulker, Noble, Rhodes and Armstrong. Went Faulkner though.

    Well Faulkner could hold his place at 6 for his batting alone, but I'd like to see another batsman. Can't be too safe with the somewhat dodgy pitches of the era.

    Edit: Actually nevermind, another allrounder would suffice.
