I'd probably lose because a lot of people wouldn't have heard of the players I'd picked, but I'd bask in the smug satisfactions of knowing my team was actually awesome.

    As per the rules, the team is being picked up to play tests, so it's only fair that they don't get the votes

    Haha, I doubt it. Spending 1/3 of my allocation for my first pick kinda gives it away anyway

    I have no problem with that, you'll slot in last in round one and have the first pick of round two
