    Who should replace Peter Siddle for the Tour of New Zealand?

    News came in on Fox Sports during the NSW v QLD Ford Ranger Cup game that Peter Siddle will miss the tour of New Zealand with stress fractures in his back. So if given carte blanche, who would you pick to replace him in the Test team? Clint McKay would seem like the first cab off the rank, but Ryan Harris has picked up 13 ODI wickets in last three games, and whether or not Richard likes it (and he won't ), it would play some factor in the selectors minds.

    I don't think Ben Hilfenhaus is fit either.
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    RIP Fardin Qayyumi, a true legend of CW

    McKay next in line.

    Harris is in good form, but give him some time to find his fitness. Played one FC game for Queensland this season. You don't select bowlers on such a small workload.

    McKay took a few poles in the ODIs but you only need to see him bowl to know that he's not test quality

    Wouldn't want McKay being one of the three quicks tbh. I'd deffo go Harris or maybe someone like George if they're fit. One shield game doesn't phase me as hardly anyone has played more than one for a month or two due to the big bash and the Xmas break.

    Judging only from what I've seen from both Harris and McKay in international matches this summer, Harris would worry me more as a NZ fan.

    I would say McKay would get it, but i agree hes not test quality. Noone else has really put their hand up in recent times.

    Cutting, George, Hastings and Geeves are on top of the domestic FC bowlers at the moment.

    Harris for me, I would really like to see the selectors pick a young gun like Peter George..and Brett Geeves is injured for the rest of the season.

    Seems to me you'd be looking to pick the guy who has been bowling 140-odd clicks, and big late away-hoopers to boot, and taking 5-fors for fun.

    Back injury forces Peter Siddle and Brett Geeves out of the summer

    "Peter experienced back pain during the Commonwealth Bank Series," Australia's physiotherapist Alex Kountouris said. "The source of the pain was investigated after the fifth ODI and unfortunately scans revealed that he has a lower back stress fracture. The nature of this injury means that Peter will require a long rehabilitation period and as such he'll be unavailable for the remainder of the domestic summer and the tour of New Zealand."

    Really hoping White gets a place in the squad. I don't think he'll be great but I think his batting could be effective at 6 and his slip fielding would be brilliant for the side.
