Redrawn for the third time, should be the final one. I've switched to a home tie but have got myself a IV team with a couple of 100k+ players so will need to be a full strength team on display.

Anyone else got an interesting one? I'm not rating Marvel's chances of progressing!

Nice draw for me, shame it's not at home, but at least we can rest everyone before the 1st FC game. Should also have a TIE in the 1st week of OD, as I think I'm due to play YB, so PFL shouldn't take too much of a hit early doors.

I should point out that's a mutual TIE rather than BB thinking I'm such a walkover..... ;)

Anyway, I should progress comfortably to round 2 as I've bowled the opposition out for 45, with Daniels producing a Morkelesque spell of 5-5-0-5. Well bowled sir!

So three depart. Next round is up and it looks like Napster got the bum draw. YB also has one to think about. I've got an effective walkover, highest rated player 6k!

Happy with that draw. Away again unfortunately but their max BT player stands at sub 40k so might even be able to rest so players. They have a squad of 14 so im sure come Sunday their fitness will be ****ed already. I have 2 home games to kick off the season unfortunately against Lower Standards CC and dirty dogs so i know what im up against and its going to be a tricky season, that is for sure!!

Home to a Level V, only 1 player over 50K BTR, should be able to rest a couple and get away with a TIE. All-in all a pretty good draw.

Mrs BB also at home to a Level V. 1 200k rated player, and 2 more over 100k. Only a 15 man squad though, so Mrs BB should have a bit of an advantage there.
