Some quality combinations there but I think Blakus, Pothas and Kingkallis are a little way ahead - don't ask me to choose between the three of them though!
Yeah, I have been lucky in this Draft. I could pick batsmen whilst some of the poor ones had to pick bowlers when they needed batsmen!
Jock Cameron not in my strongest side IIRC.
Was looking difficult until I saw Blakus' side, from there it seemed odd that I had to pick more than one.
Just out of interest - how were the players selected?
I can't imagine that Jager would deliberately choose 4 wicket-uppers unless he'd just downed half a bottle of scotch and a handful of keepers.
“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.”

Thanks. OK, now I understand.
Curtly Ambrose batting at No.7 is pretty funny.
Thanks for the vote watson.

After some thought I went for Blakus, Pothas and NUFAN.
