    Wow. Shocked face.

    Complete legend. Suspect in ten, twenty years he and his massive contribution to NZ will be forgotten by those who just log into statsguru. He's been a champ and imo NZs best seamer bar Bond since his recall.

    Five-fer at Napier to see him off imo.
    Proudly supporting Central Districts
    RIP Craig Walsh

    See Bond is always injured post.

    this is just not fair. and how can someone who puts in so much effort chuck it all up like this? the least he could do was hang on for a year or two more. it's not like 35-36 is too old to start a family, is it? christ. I'm seriously depressed about this, and not in a funny way.

    Hmm. Retirements tend to come at a similar rate TBH. You can't retire without something to retire from.

    Possibly you mean too many early retirements these days?

    Don't understand why he wants to settle in England. Is O'Brien's missus English or is Wellington that bad?

    Forged a pretty decent test career for himself after the traumas of his first few tests and has been very good this current test series.

    Yes, she lives in Derbyshire.
