Yeah, don't have a problem with Eds keeping Walcott as it was a grey area and many picks have happened since then, so it would be really harsh making him repick now.
Btw, can think of similar greyish areas in at least 2 clauses.

I've discovered that the people of northern Turkmenistan spell Yorkshire with a G. As in "Gworchere".
So does that mean I can choose Geoffrey Boycott for that particular Clause? Or is that taking the piss a bit too far?

“I'm writing a book on magic”, I explain, and I'm asked, “Real magic?” By real magic people mean miracles, thaumaturgical acts, and supernatural powers. “No”, I answer: “Conjuring tricks, not real magic”. Real magic, in other words, refers to the magic that is not real, while the magic that is real, that can actually be done, is not real magic.”

Hi guys, sorry for not picking. Was visiting family and picking up bits for uni that I'd stored with various people over summer. Currently travelling back home. I'll be able to pick in about 90 minutes if people would be so kind as to wait?
No problems wth me. Just don't pick the player I want
Alright due to some rumblings of discontent from the Drafter's Union, I am going to redo the draft order for R5/6 myself. I was contacted outside of CW about this by some, for the record.
Here's the R5 order.

Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick
Haha definitely suits me. Awesome.
