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.

Houghton ---> CD????!???

Supporting Petone's Finest since the very start - Iain O'Brien

Vimes tells it how it is:
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.Haha, they might as well have just named him. Couldn't make it any more obvious.
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.
