Gives my pace attack super versatility and variety - left arm and right arm options, seam, swing, reverse from Davo. Can bowl on heartbreaking wickets and now I am free to stack my batting as full as I want... I'm pretty happy with it now!
Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

Macartney would have been a nice addition too - might grab Kippax as my 12th man actually since no one takes much notice of it
