    Astle hasn't really had an impact this summer. Not saying Nethula is the right choice, but I can understand why they would leave Todd Astle out rather than play him against Kallis and co.

    Yeah, I wouldn't pick Astle either of course. But even in what you'd call a slight down year his number over the last two and a half seasons **** all over Nethula's.

    Has Astle worked out whether he's a batting or bowling allrounder yet?
    His FC numbers are actually a bit better than I thought, I probably would take him over Nethula.

    I'm pleased as a 'backfootpunch' with Nethula's selection in the squad!

    It's quite simply because his bowling has got worse and worse, the way he bowled early on deserved a bit of excitement and hype.

    Not long left now, but he'd be straight in the team for sure.

    You mean the Naenae premier XI? Yeah he probably would squeeze straight in there.

    In a serious note I hope he doesn't sign with easts not that he will play much club cricket anyway.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Who is the easts keeper? also is Lance Dry still playing?
    Even he would probably fare better than Nethula imo.

    ^Not an expert on Easts if Dry is the leg spinner then as of 2 months ago yes he was still playing. He pushes them through quite quickly so I would not have him before Tarun. That said he was too good for NaeNae while I was watching from the sidelines. Looks good in a headband too.

    This guy is Easts keeper

    Lance Dry's still playing and no doubt still complaining about not being selected by Wellington.

    Oho. Seriously though, we've been playing Michael Papps as our primary keeper FFS. Of course Wellington would play Ronchi.

    In other news, Mark Watson wants to know the difference between Boult, Arnel and Gillespie.

    Unfortunately the NRL intervened before someone could at least tell him Boult bowls with his left arm.

    Can someone tell me a bit about Tarun Nethula?
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.
