    Apart from being a rhyme, it was also true. The younger less established players were **** scared of him and fearful to make an error because Styris would jump down their throats. They certainly didn't feel supported, coached or even valued.

    In fact one player's request to take a day off training last week, after a pretty solid start to the season, was met by one of the coaching staff saying 'don't be a Styris'.

    Trego in for CD, Young looks like being 12th man.

    Seamers are Milne, Mathiesen, Lamb. No Wheeler, is this rotation? Or a niggle?
    Probably sensible teaming an old pro with those two at this stage anyway.

    and Wells is back already for Otago, I thought he was out for quite a while? Looks like will bat 5. No rotation at Otago with no Wagner available and I assume McMillan injured. Quite a big early season workload for young Duffy, teamed with another greenhorn again (Soper).

    I wonder if Wells will bowl

    Both teams who won toss decided to bowl.

    Welly need to hope it seams all game. 4 fast men, 2 seamers, plus part time seam from Ryder. O spinners ( unless Ryder bowls his off breaks). Houghton is 12th man, no Woodcock (who got 5-for in club cricket on Saturday). Think he had personal leave coming up, wedding? Something like that sounds familiar.

    I think he's just had his first kid.

    Wellington line up looks wierd.. Boam batting 8? **** Elliott should be batting 8 if anywhere. Pace attach looks good though.

    Hope Wheelers not too bad, must have more niggles.

    Aces are such an old man team. Not imterested in many of their players tbh.

    Sounds like Coventry City goalkeeper Joe Murphy. Goes nuts whenever we concede, even if it's his fault. Saturday was a great example, and he topped it off with an "I'm an angry troll, grrrrr" jump-up-and-down stupidly tantrum. Although I was gutted to see my side concede a last minute equaliser, it made me laugh out loud!

    Ryder and Cachopa in the runs yet again - good to see.

    Paper down here saying Wells won't bowl at this stage.

    Re: Duffy bowling loads, I imagine they'd planned for him to get a game off at some stage but he hasn't been bowling huge amounts of overs so far. Certainly nothing like the number a perpetually injured young Aussie quick bowled in one of his first FC games, which just happened to be the Sheffield Shield final.

    Also - Soper has got How and Sinclair today. To go with Fulton and Worker in his first game. Has always had a knack for getting high quality players out.

    Yeah. With Neesham having a good season with the ball,Otago have 4 good seam options per match. So not too much load on the bowlers. Plus Craig has bowled a lot if overs and got a lot of wickets so far.

    Spinners in general getting plenty of overs and wickets in Plunket shield so far, not even Dec yet.

    Hopefully Ryder gets a big one. Cachopa is still scoring ****ing runs as well.

    Hmmm, Mathieson and Milne. Could be either a lot of runs or a lot of wickets.

    I've seen on here a few times that Mathieson bowls 140+. Is this NZ domestic "140+" which means 135km/h with an occasional ball at 140km/h or is he genuinely really consistently quick?

    Can see why Ryder would score runs against this Auckland attack - lots of 130km/h medium pace that relies on accuracy and just a little swing or nibble off the seam to get wickets. Breakfast for Jesse.

    Ryder in 'lol, domestic bowlers' mode again. Currently 51 off 50.
