  1. How many ‘bucks’ does each franchise have to spend to buy players at tonight’s auction.
    Am I correct thinking this : – working with the benchmark of 3 million from last year, deduct the initial auction cost of the retained players, to which you then add or subtract any non-auction sales or purchases ? This leaves the amount available to purchase new players. Would love to know the machinations in the minds of the franchises ‘selectors’. Cheers.
