Actually if they stick around for FC cricket they might be bloody great signings.
Well Yardy wont because he'll be playing one day cricket in Australia you'd have to think - then most likely the world cup.
That's looking pretty hard to beat. Discounting How's test record and Ingram mk I, not one batsman averages under 38. Yardy has the lowest average and he's still ****ing good. Only unknown is how the three young bowlers will go, but Milne and Bracewell look real talents and maybe McClenaghan will bring his NZ A form back.
If anyone is a liability we still have a pretty good reserve bench of bowling talent (admittely with very few games between them).
Can't go past ND's picks though.
Wonder if Wright will play any FC? Wonder if Wellington will sign a third player.
Giving CD a decent spiner would really do them a world of good.
Northern Districts and Auckland look to be the teams to beat at this stage imo, especially when you include the New Zealand players who should only miss the first three rounds I think?
He's improved his allround cricket a lot since moving to Durham - he's taken 94 wickets @ 25 for them.

Moeen is a perfectly fine bowler FFS
Both Mickey Mouse but Blackwell will love the postage size grounds in New Zealand, the benign wickets and Kiwi “quicks” whilst Yardy will choke the batsman with 70mph darts. Gibbs, Wright, Blackwell, Yardy, thank goodness for The Future of the Game® and RTD!
Love the cynicism.
Will be interesting to see if Franklin bats quite high up for Wellington like he did for his county side in 20/20 or List A (was it both or just the one?). Wellington's bowling with the return of O'Brien is gaining some depth.
