    Also, Frankly the best strategy in this seems to be discovering a loophole picking the player and hoping no one complains.

    Was stupid to ask before picking personally as stretching the boundary this much in some questions and that much in other questions all seems a bit too much subjective.

    Yeah I wouldn't have picked him had it not been set with the Pollock selection (which I seem to have missed... CricSim stealing my forum time these days!)

    Very handy pick at this stage though.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    I'll be policing things more strongly next time we draft like this.
