    1. No Father.

      I too will be using Cox as a loophole this week.

      When Ryder went down, I made a last minute swap to English at R3 and Cox in for McLean.

      English was very good and I thought Cox played alright, he seemed to get to the right spots but couldn’t take his marks in the slippery conditions. Lets pray for a few dry days when he returns.

      I’m currently tossing up between trading Ryder to a non R14 Bye Forward (maybe Westhoff)and running Cox and English at R2/3.

      The other option is to just trade Ryder for durable ruck in Jacobs
      or McEvoy. Boring I know!

      At least I have options now as I’m holding $375K.

      My “Danger recovery fund” plus Mclean downgrade cash.
