The Fantasy King: Round 26

By Mick Adams Well, we’ve finally made it. Congratulations to anyone playing a fantasy grand final this weekend.

The Fantasy King: Round 24

By Mick Adams Hope everybody survived the first week of the finals. That’s more than I can say for myself, having been heartbreakingly knocked out.
