    Don't see why not if we're truly scraping the barrel in Rounds 11 and 12.

    **** it, Bradman

    The punishment does not outweigh the reward here I feel, given the era specified.
    Coronis and Justo like this.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    Joke number 1: All the players that anyone has ever heard of have already been chosen.

    Joke number 2: In keeping up with the era that the draft is involved in, LHC has decided that all contestants are to use a feather ink pen and send a letter to him with there choices.

    Its funny because its true.

    Anyway 48 hours have passed since morgie picked. That means if everyone has 12 hours Samuel Vines could be up.. but yeah I dunno what LHC wants to do, since i know since Monk and Howe are usually very active..

    Not quite sure where we are on this but as the three above me have picked I will do likewise

    Disappointed that Lol has been snatched from under me, so I'll go for the Grand Old Man, WG Grace
