    Jesse Ryder back?

    Sounds like Ryder has made a bit of a transformation - dropping 10kg and giving up the drink.

    How long will this last though?

    Hmm remains to be seen but its a start. Lord knows we could do with him in SA if things keep going the way they are.

    Jesse Ryder actually behaving like a proffessional cricketer? Hmmmm...I'll believe it when I see it. Still, given how terrible the form of our current test batsmen are, all he needs to do is have a solid season with Wellington, and to keep his nose out of trouble. If he manages that, he'll be in the test and ODI sides by the middle of England's tour to NZ, next year.

    FFS does that add anything whatsoever to the discussion? Yet another example of post-boosting by yourself.

    Anyway, it would be awesome if Ryder was able to set aside his weight and disciplinary issues and become a more professional cricketer, but I'll beleive it when I see it. No doubt HDS will be able to confirm/deny if he's looking in good shape once the domestic season gets underway.

    It's amazing how people are willing to forgive and forget (well maybe not on the later) when they are starting to get a bit desperate.

    I'm willing to forgive because he could actually make a difference to whether we win or lose matches.

    Isn't that part of what makes people human? Recognising that people make mistakes and that if they want to change then you give them another chance?

    Happens for criminals so why not for immature young men?

    The boy has prodigious talent.
    I was leaving the cricket museum (doing some work there, ahhh dream come true) at the basin yesterday and they were training, didn't notice the big guy so he must have turned it around.

    If you saw some of the backlash against on here when he did a runner off to England, then you could see the reasoning behind my post.

    Can already tell you. He's been in exceptional form for Naenae in the Pearce Cup. He scored another 110 today to add to his 81 last week. Must be pushing nearly 500 runs already for this club season. He's looking thinner - though not thin - and seeing him in the club rooms after the match last week, he was sipping on a Heineken. I got through 3 exports before he finished his first Heiney.

    If he's as good as people are suggesting shouldn't he be scoring 200's not just 110. Or is this limited overs?

    What is so good about him? Who can he be compared to (talent wise)?

    Rubbish. It's simply a way of saying "probably not that long".

    Hopeless cases tend to relapse again before too long - let's hope otherwise for Ryder, but my expectation would be that he won't more than he would.
