Pants are off. Mason WAG.
IMO, he suffered from being seen as a boring line and length bowler (which he wasn't just, had seam, bounce and accuracy in the mid to high 130s and sometimes swung it) when we had some decent bowlers in the test side and when we didn't, there were some left field selections in place of the likes of Mason and O'Brien (like the young Ian Butler).
I think he should have played more tests, but by the time O'Brien blew the "NZ long term journeymen with awesome records are rubbish" theory out of the water, Mason was on the decline.
Didn't have the greatest test debut either, and was given the chop pretty quickly.
The man is a champion domestically, and stands alongside Mathew Sinclair as an iconic player for Central Districts in the modern era.
