    For example, the player's father (immediate relative) has a brother (immediate relative of the father) who was an international would make a valid pick.
    Or the son of a players sister.

    I think a parent, sibling or child of a parent, sibling or child covers it. Another example is a granddad-grandson relationship with either the father/son or mother/daughter in the middle cos they have an immediate relationship with the granddad and grandson. Not sure if this is easy to follow but it's my best shot. A half-sister's dad would also be ok I suppose as a close relationship even if it's not the dad of the player in question (so not an immediate relationship).

    I nearly got lax and was considering U-21 players etc at one stage though lol before checking with lanman and then checking the criteria again, but think I got the relationship stuff worked out ok.

    Sorry, took me more than 4 minutes to attempt an explanation! Correct me about the half-sister example if it's wrong though.

    Yes, after the first picks are finished. Won't be taking Round 2 selections until the first round is over though.

    I've got everyone's picks in (Triton has withdrawn) and that leaves us with a round 16 teams.

    Results up shortly.

    Could've been more aggressive, but that'll do for now.

    Murphy's Law? :D

    I don't know if I have the time to do a review/update thread, so if someone wants to have a go at it, go at it. :)

    Done.

    If Peru wants to do his roster updates that'll be cool, but otherwise I can do it or anyone can volunteer.

    Can't believe 2 picks that are almost certainly through actually got through. If they haven't yet got through...

    This round could result in an unpleasant sheep. People might be forced to pick the relatives of those already selected :p
