we had to sit on him though. and his mate who was above the grade and also got nunfa. had to try to make up for it against the fat old blokes though who took 9 at about 7rpo
then the two ****s came out and opened the batting. I got one early, the tassie **** scored a quick 30 odd and out
i think its less about where guys were born and more where they actually developed their games, i.e richo born in nt, but played what, 6 years of grade cricket before getting a gig.
Surely if players who would seem to be above the standard are consistently average, especially with the bat then maybe it's of a better standard than one would think. Plunkett hasn't set the world on fire, the fella who came from mosman, barber went from averaging 30 in sydney first grade to 20 here.
It's not a mockery like you think it is

Will say this once and then nothing else. Defamation laws quite clear in Aus.be careful.
Your right though. A lot of the First Class and 2nd grade players that have come to Sydney have started in 3rd grade and generally struggled.
We had 7 or 8 guys over the last 4 or 5 seasons play at my club in Sydney and a 3 of them averaged less than 20 in 3rd grade.
Makes you wonder...
Daniel Brettig: "Siddle is the vital glue for a bowling attack that needs experience and consistency to balance the talent of Hazlewood, Starc, James Pattinson and Pat Cummins. Hopefully Lehmann and company will now remember this"
