    Yeah I floated this a little while back, I've got some pretty good mail on it and he's almost certain to be in Brisbane next summer.

    Given how much time Vic has put in Holland I don't see them discarding him after actually putting in a couple of good performances finally. So yeah I guess SA is the only other option. Or not taking a contract, and becoming a T20 pro. But really, the more I think about it he might hang around in NSW, and back SOK to lose the C. And maybe go play for the team that loses their spinner who will be in India at the backend of the season (which could be QLD if Boyce has a decent season up 'til that point)

    SA will probably sign Krejza or something stupid anyway

    In all seriousness I don't know much about Gale, except that he's quite a decent bowler.

    I think it was to do with his wife or something. Vic_oxthdox has talked about it a bit so he'll inform us. I think.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    I could probably do some digging around if you wanted info on Gale, he is the cousin of one of my friends and they are quite close
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    I'd be surprised. Moved up there for family reasons in the first place; something to do with his missus, and his own parents are in QLD now too. He got a job and everything up there, and just happened that his cricket took off. Was a really promising player who got cut down by injuries a lot in Victoria.

    James Hopes (capt) - keeper
    Cameron Boyce - keeper
    Ryan Broad - might have to stick around
    Joe Burns - keeper
    Ben Cutting - keeper
    Ben Dunk - might try to get the shield spot in SA or WA, maybe Vic too
    Luke Feldman - might go tassie or something
    Jason Floros - meh
    Peter Forrest - keeper
    Ryan Harris - keeper.that talk of him going back to SA seems absurd
    Chris Hartley - keeper
    Chris Lynn - keeper
    Alister McDermott - keeper
    Michael Neser - keeper
    Nathan Reardon - uh an OD keeper i guess
    Andrew Robinson - might have to stick around
    Chris Swan - see feldman
    Scott Walter- see feldman


    Don't know where Townsend is, but he sticks around. Gale and Magoffin get contracts. Steve
    Paulsen probably doesn't. and then the rookies

    Corey Barsby
    Nick Buchanan
    Cameron Gannon
    Alex Kemp
    James Peirson
    Nick Stevens

    Dan Christan doesn't seem so certain to move btw

    They've got a serious list, QLD, if they can add another top order batsman or too. They have huge wraps on Buchanan, the kid is bloody enormous and just pounds the bat without putting any effort in. Barsby's kid is class as well.

    Assuming they do grab one of Usman/Hughes, I guess the only other problem is if they lose Dunk and so who the OD keeper is.....yeah a massive problem

    Victoria are probably gonna lose a batsman yeah? Like, here's a team off the top of my head:

    1. Quiney
    2. Rogers - might retire I guess
    3. Dussey - should play most of the season.
    4. White - ahahahahah
    5. McDonald
    6. Maxwell - these two maybe one spot too high
    7. Carters, or Handscomb?
    8. Hastings
    9. McKay
    10. Herrick
    11. Holland

    So Hill, Finch, maybe Handscomb are all on the sidelines and you'd think other teams would want all of them

    Josh Hazlewood - keeper
    Moises Henriques - keeper
    Philip Hughes - keeper, but if he wants to leave i'm cool with it

    Simon Katich - don't be a WAnker
    Usman Khawaja - see hughes
    Brett Lee - bah
    Nic Maddinson - **** off PONI.
    Peter Nevill - make captain
    Ben Rohrer - keeper
    Steven Smith - make VC
    Mitchell Starc - keeper
    David Warner - uh
    Shane Watson - fa
    Rookie List
    Sean Abbott - nah
    Nic Bills - maybe
    Nathan Brain - probably not
    Timm Van Der Gugten - def not
    Adam Zampa - possibly
    You've picked too many wicket keepers in that list. Might be short on bowling imo.

    They'll (QLD) back Hartley in at 7, or even give the kid a go down the order, don't think they'd be all that fussed.

    Wouldn't be surprised to see the heat put on Rogers, they have to start fitting in Handscomb. Don't know what the story will be with Hill, been injured for most of the year, but has got a few 2nd XI runs towards the end of the season. They've invested so much into him though.

    yeah i can see heat being put on rogers (sadly) but I would have thought to get Hill in there? Handscomb isn't an opener (although most openers weren't openers....)

    I can't blame Hughes or Khawaja for wanting to move up north to the Shield champions. Darren Lehmann has got to be a perfect coach especially for left handed batsman. Seriously you would have to think he's better than a certain LH opening bat who's 'helping' Australia.

    Oh and Benchy, how original.
