    Retirement Rookies

    At the recent board meeting we decided to reintroduce retirement rookies. These players will replace the guys that will retire at the end of this season. These players cannot be picked until next season...

    I see the days of average rookies were short lived, kind of wish some of my older players had retired now.

    I count 6 to 8, there only 3 or 4 guns though, which i guess is not that bad.

    it's not that bad really I only see 3 really good players there and 1 of those 3 is pretty expensive in one day. The rest aren't really that great, but aren't terribly bad either.

    Carter, Kumar, Browning and Jayasuria are the only really good players and as dave said Browning is pretty expensive but has a good strike rate.

    Pity we can't have them play till next season, cause Mackle might have actually earnt himself retention (not actually saying I want that to happen, it would obviously be way too unfair). Still, Yorks, TN and Tasmania must be pretty happy with their rookies.

    Zugade is good. Averages 29 and 22 in FC, and 33 and 24 in OD.

    Very nice allrounder.
    Or something.

    By the way Simon, I'm fairly sure you can attach an excel file directly now, rather than zipping it.

    Pretty stoked with Kumar. Other guy will probably goto the draft.


    Simon, I take it the RR's can go straight into the 1st XI?
