    Its a sad situation at the moment, Mark Tulloch from Wellington said he had received 4 abusive phone calls.

    Tamara whats the deal on this Canterbury squad? is it youthful or mixed?

    I know from my friends & relations down in CHCH that the likes of Peter Borren, Neil Broom & Leighton Burt are good Under 19 players.

    I seriously doubt they'd pick Ben Yock. Players like Peter Borren, Neil Broom & Leighton Burtt who played for the NZ U19's this year have a good chance.

    I dunno if Spearman is eligible to be picked any more as he's buggered off to England to play under an EU Passport, strangely he did quite well :wow: I dunno if that's just International or not...

    20...that's a rather big number :(:(:(

    He's playing as a foreigner!

    Must be the first case of a Kiwi playing as a foreigner in New Zealand, but a local in England?

    Is he exchange for Twose?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    I have a feeling in a situation like this Spearman would get a dispensation from the ICC to play for NZ for the good of the game.

    Hmmmm but he's trying to be a European in order to play in England as a non-overseas player...he has to either be committed to NZ or County Cricket, not both.

    Yes I know that. What I am saying is that for the good of cricket the ICC would make an allowance.

    Spearman went to England last year because he had a job offer, however he was approached by John Bracewell to play for Gloustershire, and since he had parent heritage from England he was allowed to play.

    I think Spearman would definately be available for NZ, because he's represented NZ before & because he only spent one season in England.

    If he does play for NZ, it'll end his career as an English quailifed player over here - the ECB won't allow him to play as an English qualified if he's playing for NZ - don't want another Symonds on our hands.

    As Glouscestershire have already signed up Harvey and Rhodes, he'd have to rely on someone else wanting him then.

    The team has 2 17 year old players in it and a few players that played in the under 19 world cup. I had never heard of a few of them myself. Andrew Buckingham and Todd Elliot are from my province and both great players but I believe they will struggle at a higher level. It will be interesting to see how they all go.
