Sorry for holding things up, the new draft order only got posted at 1am NZT last night and I haven't been on today until now.
GOOD OLD COLLINGWOOD - PREMIERS IN 2010Originally Posted by Irfan
Is Cam White, Is Good.
Fantastic attack that. Was eyeing both Turner and Ferris actually but you beat me to the punch on both of them. Still I've got a few decent bowlers myself so I'm not fussed.

Whoops, original pick was Jack Cowie but unfortunately it turns out he doesn't count under my rules, so instead I take Ken Farnes, a genuinely fast bowler of great renown who sadly died very young in WWII. A more-than-able replacement, and him and Larwood should make an exciting new-ball pairing, although there may be concerns about Bodyline!
1. Stewart Dempster
4. Stan McCabe
5. Eddie Paynter
8. Bert Oldfield
9. Harold Larwood
10. Clarrie Grimmett
11. Ken Farnes

Without the WW1 motorcycle accident this man would surely have gone on to become the world's greatest allrounder
I have been peeking into this thread once in a while, and interesting how good the teams look. I had initially thought there would be very little choice available from pre-war cricketers (though there are a few that I hadn't heard of before. Good to learn about them too).
Z dragging this out to the hour one fancies
Sorry for the delay - it's been a long night

Something of a dream middle-order that
Team shaping up very nicely.
