I know last season his asking price was around $12k but i think he wants to get some minutes and some exposure down south.

Putting together a pretty solid team now.

Allen/Back-up C
Warbout/Backup PF

Everyone signed so far with NBL experience, along with the HC.

Hill a possibility and due to Allens low minutes another restricted player (NBL or Import).

Now its time to produce on the court..

159, yes you can, but apparently they won't put it in a plastic bag for you!

Back to Brisbane. 400% humidity, four x beer and one way streets everywhere. When it's not flooding. Beautiful part of the country.

One time ago we went there for Easter Carnivals .
Mildura first , later Mt Gambier . Only really saw the stadium , and the campfire . Aw , crossed a green river at Mildura and a blue lake at Mt Gambier , to get to the stadium .
Campfire is the best form of art .
One friendly guy came to out campfire and introduced himself as Ken , new to Australia .Next day he looked like a pretty good player . Later , West won the carnival and Ken the best player. Ken Richardson they announced .

Allen will be a handy backup in the SEABL.
