    According to reports in South Africa, Ryan McLaren will play for South Africa against Kenya and Bangladesh so he may still turn out for the Eagles.

    As I probably wrote last season, disappointed not to see Maurice Aronstam with a Titans contract.

    IMO, would have been an England player if he had done a KP (and if maybe was a little less nice)

    To Goughy/TT Boy, how highly rated is Jonathan Vandiar IN RSA ?

    saw him at the u-19 wc this year and he was one of the best batsmen at that tournament.
    A friend of mine in RSA reckons he's one of the most talented batsmen the country has produced since readmission....have u guys heard similar stuff about him ??

    Big. Ray Jennings, South Africaís U19 coach said he would have Vandiar already in and around the national team and the Dolphins were mortified when Vandiar left for the Lions. His a really exciting player to watch but Cricket South Africa seem more concerned at the moment in bringing on his leg-spin. Vandiar was sent to India during the off-season to a spinnerís clinic and there is a real want for him to become a fully fledged all-rounder. His a good fielder as well, quick across the ground and that was evident during the U19 World Cup where South Africaís fielding was on a different planet to any other side.

    Pretty brave move on his part opting for the Lions, a side which has struggled for sometime but that should at least guarantee him a place straight away. Looking forward to seeing how he and the likes of Parnell and van Zyl get on this year.

    Interesting but you do wonder how good Aronstam truly is if the Titans have given three new contracts to openers, two rookies (Malan, Jappie) and one a overhyped and pretty poor player from the Lions, Blake Snijman.

    He is, IMO, the best player I have played with. Now maybe that doesnt mean he can kick on at the next level but he was fantastic and everything about him (apart from being a really nice guy, maybe to a fault) said 'quality cricketer'.

    Take away his batting and he is also a better spinner the van der Merwe as well.

    Look out for JJ Smuts.. A local boy who I've played a bit with.. Used to score hundreds every week for school and it will be interesting to see if he can make a name for himself in FC cricket,..

    I wonder why he never went elsewhere. The problem (well not really a problem) is the Titans have the two spinners in Harris and Tahir so he played as a sixth bowler, despite how well he bowls. Not only that but he had a poor season with the bat last year. I would think it's time to move on to greener pastures with another franchise. Is it still possible for him to get picked up?

    I know why he didnt go anywhere as Ive asked him on a number of occassions (though admittedly not for a year or so)

    The answer, IIRC, is that there is a family business and he didnt want to leave.

    I wasn't overly impressed with Smuts in the U19 World Cup but Ray White is a big fan. Also, Jon-Jon attends the Nelson Mandela University (along with Wayne Parnell) where national selector, Shafiek Abrahams works, so if he does impress it will be closely followed. Smuts isn't actually apart of the Warriors side for their first SuperSport game but the franchise last year was forced to open with the likes of Johan Botha, so he should get a fair crack this coming season.

    Apparently, Jon-Jon is also a good tennis player. Him and his younger brother, Kelly (who has also represented South African U19ís in cricket), recently competed in a Eastern Province tennis championship final.

    What province do each of the franchises roughly represent?

    Ie I'm fairly sure the Dolphins are Natal, but no idea about anyone else.

    Well it looks like David Wiese didn't get a contract either. He's another player that needs to move on or he'll get swallowed up by the other Titan all-rounders and lose his spot.

    Did you? Haha, I've kind of turned down an offer there so I can go back to my pilots license.. Take it you'll have frequented Toby Joe's then.. I used to live just off Strandfontein Road

    Titans is mainly Northern Gauteng. Im not sure if you are trying to wind me up

    It is combined Northens and Easterns and both are Gauteng.
