There might be a few cricketers from Queanbeyan reaching into their savings to buy a property or two this summer.
Because the more they take off Mark Higgs' hands, the more he can play cricket with them every weekend.
Higgs scored a quickfire 54 and claimed two wickets during his cameo appearance for the Bluebags last week - but now he's back to reality. A life in real estate means Higgs will only manage to get a game in "here and there".
So Mark Solway's Queanbeyan outfit will be without Higgs when they meet ANU at Neil Bulger Oval in the Cricket ACT Gallop Cup on Saturday.
"Real estate is a Saturday job and I just had a couple of properties sold so it gave me a bit of spare time [to play last week]," Higgs said.
"I've got three coming to the market, not next week but the week after, so that will put a bit of a slow down on [cricket]. I've got five to open this weekend so that'll keep me going."
But the most valuable part of Higgs' cameo appearances isn't the runs or the wickets.
It is his leadership and the impact he has on a squad stacked with youngsters led by Mark Solway, who not so long ago was in their shoes.
"He is probably a leader of those kids, we had three kids under 16 playing on the weekend," Higgs said.
"It says a bit about which way our club is going at the moment so his experience will be valuable.
"Dean [Solway] and Vele [Dukoski], those sorts of players, will have to play a lead role. The kids coming through are fantastic.
"We've got really good young kids coming through, it's as much good seeing them come through as anything else."
Meanwhile, Queanbeyan product and former ACT Comet Henry Hunt opened the batting for South Australia in his Sheffield Shield debut against Victoria at St Kilda on Friday.
