    Sub for whoever you think is more appropriate.

    There needs to be some plan for how we develop the promising spinners. I don't think there's enough expertise in the country ATM.
    I think as well practicing in nets that are artificial - makes it hard for budding spinners growing up.

    Considering the player was persevered with despite almost two years of poor performance ahead of other talented locals, a move back to the big city will be viewed by some as a major slap in the face.

    However, it shouldn’t be surprising as part of my argument over the past few years against the Stags importing so many players from outside the region, has been that as soon as they are successful, they are likely to disappear back to the city.

    Clearly it's Tarun Nethula.

    Will be a big shame if Cachopa goes since I think this might be the final Skippy Summer and that leaves two massive holes in our middle order.

    Anyway, read a very patronising article about the Stags success in the Dom Post today. Apparently despite being the best team in the competition you can't say we are the best team in the competition if your hand is on your heart.

    edit: I suppose if we have a mass abandonment, now is our chance to steal Harry Boam.

    ^^ Beat me too it.

    **** I wouldnt mind if you do take Boam, should be batting at 5 imo. With guys like Elliott, Papps, Murdoch and Woodcock pushing the best up and comer down the order, he deserves more. Not saying any of those guys are bad players, just are a bit past it in terms of making the test team.

    Leaves more room for a Greg Hay return though!

    I actually thought of Chops immediately but it could be Nethula too I guess; it's not as clear cut as I first imagined. I just didn't think Nethula fit in with the idea of the guy being poor when he first arrived from Auckland and then getting better lately, because if anything Nethula performed better when he first arrived at CD than he is now.

    He's suggesting he wasn't much chop from his Stags debut in 2010 until 2012, and he's then embellished that to 'almost two years' to help maintain the big secret.

    My first thought was Andrew Mathieson, but that would only be true if you counted Hamilton as a big city

    Carlchopa obvz banking on Milne and the rest of the CD attack being forever injured.

    Haha yeah, a vulnerable Chops on the bounciest road in the country will be fun to watch.

    Otherwise not a bad call as far as career advancement goes, he'll get to play an anchoring role to much more aggressive bats on a ground where Hopkins can average 55.

    Auckland are going to have a packed middle order next season. Both Cachopa's, Kitchen, Hakaraia, Hopkins, de Boorder, Munro and CdG all vying for spots in that 3-7 area. I think they're going to lose one of those players to another side.

    Auckland might be dire atm but they've exported a lot of FC standard players around the country. Every domestic side has at least one Aucklander on their roster and Canterbury and CD have 3.
