    Faulkner batted at No.5 the most - 10 times at an average of 46.78
    Something tells me there might have been a bit of rain between the third and fourth innings there.

    506 and then 80 runs is somewhat of a contrast I guess.

    Trumper scored a better-than-a-run-a-ball 159 in that game. WAG.

    Every time I picked Faulkner, he played @ No.6 but this time I will have to make some changes to balance things. Next few rounds will give me a clear view. Right now, yes - he will play @ No.3.

    Ahh WAC. I rate Walsh a lot higher than most but thought his under-ratedness might see him last a bit longer. Got greedy.
