Two Overs At ... Chinese George
The newest Internet sensation, "Chinese George" is our latest overseas amateur. Rapidly making a name thanks to his Asian heritage and elegant late cuts, CG has already set a precedent for one of the smallest 6s ever hit in the GMCL, after which he was roundly abused by the opposition. He makes a damn fine chicken madras though, and both he and his adoptive "pawwww" have been welcome additions to the ranks.
