Rickeh surfaces on Splyce's ESEA roster

Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland joined Splyce's ESEA roster and is seemingly on the cusp of a return to competition.

The Australian player went inactive after his last team, CLG, pulled the plug on their male CS:GO division at the end of 2017. Since then, Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland spent time back in Australia before returning to North America at the end of March.

Rickeh could be getting back into the fray soon

At the beginning of April, shortly after announcing his free agency, Rickeh was spotted playing a DreamHack Open Tours qualifier match for Splyce, replacing Zack "XotiC" Elshani.

The Australian didn't take part in any official matches since then, however, earlier today Rickeh joined the team's roster on ESEA, hinting at the possibility he will play in Splyce's final ESL Pro League matches of the season as they hope to escape relegation. According to a report by dust2.usRickeh joined the squad after the roster lock deadline, which could see him be ineligible to play the final two games against of the season where Splyce will take on Cloud9.

As of now, it's not sure if Rickeh's addition to the squad will be a permanent one, and if it is, who will make way for the Australian. 

Splyce now have the following players on their active roster:

United States Taylor "Drone" Johnson
United States Stephen "reltuC" Cutler
United States Zack "XotiC" Elshani
Canada David "DAVEY" Stafford
Canada Kory "SEMPHIS" Friesen
Australia Ricardo "Rickeh" Mulholland

United States Zachary "Eley" Stauffer (coach)

maybe liquid? They need an awper
2018-04-25 17:59
Yea but they need to stick with a lineup for more than a month. Maybe ska’s replacement
2018-04-25 22:02
would be an upgrade too tbh, his form hasn't been the greatest or most consistent
2018-04-26 00:49
Yea he returned to form for the major but he was awful before it and starting to decline again.
2018-04-27 00:58
Yeah exactly. Came off of a major win where he actually contributed a lot and then fell off
2018-04-27 03:23

I mean he can make do with Spylce - knowing these NA teams he would get paid enough to get by. His best shot was always Liquid, never could see him joining C9 but that obvs didn't happen.

Eh I wouldn't think much of it... Splyce is a good team to have as a stepping stone to get his name back out there again so he can actually get picked up by an upper tier team.. So it's really not a bad place to start since he's been inactive for a while.

Hes been playing cs while in aus.. Splyce must be paying good to get him back to the US.. good enough wage and living arangements.. would have signed a contract prior leaving.. if not hes stupid.. Splyce is a stepping stone to get recognized by a higher tier team.. good on him for pursuing it and pushing to get back to NA.. Only aus person to find his own way back to NA imo.. Yam didnt end up going back.. musnt have got any good offers.. and looks like his current team TM aint doing too good either.. struggle against greyhound/order/chiefs.. and thoes guys have experience in NA scene.. winterfox/renegades..

Rickeh does deserve better but it looks like he'll need to prove himself again and if this stint works out he can get better opportunities later. Not all bad. He just needs to perform as best as he can.
