Ben Allen to Mt Gambier; is he pushing for 36ers?

Wonder if the decision by Ben Allen to sign at Mt Gambier to play SEABL has anything to do with him pushing for a spot on the 36ers roster next season?

Hope not! Although Boti would have a bunny to write about every week

A snippet from Bot's article -

AFTER its Breakers' experience, Adelaide was determined not to squander a big lead in this one, so three was all it ever led by.
No Jacob Holmes meant someone had to stand up for Townsville and it was either going to have to be the very rusty Russell Hinder or Mount Gambier's boom SEABL recruit Ben "Ain't Been Ballin' " Allen.
It was Rusty who shook off the cobwebs, delivering a 17-point, nine-rebound, 3-assist performance, leaving Big Ben to regale teammates on the bench with stories, songs and legends of how he slew the game's giants back in those heady days of the pre-season.
Hinder connected on 4-of-5 three-pointers and STILL had half of the Crocs' offensive rebounds! (OK, two out of their four isn't really that big a deal.)
The 36ers came home strongly on the back of Stevie Weigh's 21 points, 13 of which came in the last period and it may have been more had he not been subbed out after hitting eight straight.
It was a 27-29 last quarter and exciting to watch, Townsville holding on to win again, 86-82.
It may just be a coincidence, or not, but the Crocs haven't lost since Luke Nevill was signed. Lurch had 19 points at 69 per cent.
Gary Ervin's 23-point, 10-assist double wasn't too shabby either.

The bit about Ben on the bench is funny & Weigh being dragged after hitting 8 in a row. Boti's patience with Marty has all but gone...

He is a self decribed finesse big man, i think that's code for I don’t like to go inside the 3pt line in case someone bumps me and it ruins my hair!

Allen will struggle in Mt Gambier because how is he going to carry his hair gel with no plastic bags?!

Why else would Allen sign to play in Mt Gambier?

He's the league-wide whipping boy. Would happily take him as a backup if DJ wasnt there.
