Daniel Brettig: "Siddle is the vital glue for a bowling attack that needs experience and consistency to balance the talent of Hazlewood, Starc, James Pattinson and Pat Cummins. Hopefully Lehmann and company will now remember this"
Watson isn't really good at the whole moving around thing while fielding

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Watson in the field resembles the Tin Man from Wizard of Oz.
Can't help but feel as though Cowan may have played his last test
Cowan was never going to be anything more than a plug, imo. He's done well but is never going to be more than sufficient. As soon as a talented opener proves himself ready for international cricket, he'll take Cowan's place.

Disclaimer: I am a biased South African. Anything I say is likely to have something in it that ultimately favours the Proteas.
Watson as a bowler seams to have what it takes to get the wickets. Boof putting him up top of the order sounds strange for what people are used to for an allrounder I think but if it works gee I won't say no. I want a good opener to take the new ball out of it.
Cowan does that too to a certain extent, yeah he probably needs to count himself lucky until someone really puts their hand up at shield level.
Talented, meaning having the potential to be a quality international opener. The choice of words may not have been ideal.
As opposed to Cowan, who's done a good enough job, but will never be anything more than a useful domestic star.
That's just it. He has decent technique. He doesn't have any glaring weaknesses.
He's a good cricketer. But he hasn't got anything that will make him anything more than a useful international player.
"Useful" is still better than "has glaring weaknesses" though.
