That's Gold Hadder's, Gold! I haven't been able to pull a recruit with that high a MR yet. I would have him as a mainly bowling allrounder who opens. Almost 4k spare, you could put him on fielding till average, then allrounder and see where his primaries are though from the summary it looks like they are fairly even. Nothing wrong with a reasonable batting opener who mainly bowls, that endurance of his should make that doable. I have a similar player in my main though he has gifted batting as well, had ordinary batting average bowling poor tech to start. I am looking at working on bowling till capable-reliable then putting on AR training for a while

I actually quite like 'Opener' on a Bowler - can send him into open as a 'sacrifice' on bowling friendly wickets. I'd go Bowling Tech first and hope for an early tech pop.

That's a good point CJ, I completely overlooked that tech.

Got to love when you get dreadful tech alongside a decent primary, both flawed as you said.

They both have over 3k spare Angus would be the better of the 2 because of his high tech and could make it as a RFS, but he has dreadful exp which is a real downside. Jeffries could be a decent AR with his talent but dreadful tech means he will need to be on fielding then bowling tech his whole youth. If you have space for them you could give them a while to see if a primary pops early.

Potentially very good, depending on how close Technique is to popping. Hoping for a quick technique pop as there's a decent amount of spares.

Agreed he looks strong, another hit for you CJ and everyone loves a left handed Opener.

Good ratings, but a lot of it consumed by fielding. 3k of spares. Going to train as a bowler, but summary suggests he's nowhere near getting a pop to average.

That skill summary does suggest you have very little spares where you want them, still will be a serviceable club player.
