    Bit of a 2013 story on Tryon. Seems to be a new done-me-wrong Stag who's now got himself 300 runs ahead of our premium World Cuppers, with two days of the tourney remaining.

    Cricket: Stance finds traction - Sport - Hawke's Bay Today News

    The Zimbabwean-born player, who bowls right-arm offspins, becomes the first Havelock North club national representative since Martyn Sigley in the mid-1990s.

    The teen, known to mates as "Marble", arrived in New Zealand as a 5-year-old from Harere with parents, Darel and Mark Tryon, and his two sisters, Gemma, 23, now living in London, and Denise, 21, who is in Perth, where her father works for a train company and mother is looking for work. The Tryons fled their country following the political turmoil in 2000. They lived in Masterton for four years before shifting up here.

    CD manager of amateur cricket Briasco says Tryon is an "interesting character who doesn't say very much but possesses very good hand-eye skills".

    "He's probably still very front-foot dominant," he says, adding Tryon is working on his timing to rock back to react earlier to shots.

    Primarily he feels the teenager needs to employ his shoulders and back more, rather than just his hands in executing drives, something Bay high performance development manager Dale Smidt also honed in a player who "wasn't the easiest person to work with".

    "He's very receptive to coaching now and a hard worker so I wish him all the best," Briasco says, adding he'd love to see him prove the selectors wrong in pursuing a national berth.

    He suspects two things held Tryon back in the age groups.

    One, he perhaps didn't know how to face the shorter-pitched deliveries and, two, whether he exposed himself to coaching to address his shortcomings.

    "Potentially he's capable of becoming a good middle-order batsman in the short form of the game because he hits the ball well, can rotate strike, runs well between the wickets, can bowl offspin and all those things."

    Although he bats at No3 or 4, Tryon is excited about the prospect of "something different at No 6 or 7".

    "At 3-4 you get more time to get your eye in but at 6-7 you have to score pretty quickly," says Tryon, who prefers to get himself into a rhythm before taking an aggressive stance.

    Having fallen in love with cricket after his father gave him throw downs here as a child, Tryon didn't follow his family to Perth because the chance of higher honours are better here than the cut-throat Australian environment. The Tryons will be in Darwin to support him in the next few days.

    "I'd love to make a career out of it," he says, emphasising he loves all three forms of the code.

    His other big influence in cricket is former Havelock North age-group coach Derek Ward, who also offers him part-time work at his business, Craft and Hern Sports in Hastings.

    Passionate about the game, Tryon hopes to enjoy himself in Darwin and see the Kiwis do well although making Dubai will be a thrill. Having to slip on a black ensemble with his name emblazoned on the back of the shirt will also be unforgettable.

    Briasco says the litmus test for Tryon will be how he reacts when the opposition start delivering rib ticklers.

    I doubt there are two cricket playing Martin Sigley's - I played against him growing up in Hamilton. He casually hit my off spin bowling for six when I drifted on to his leg stump once - went on to play for the school we loved to hate Boys High. Very handy keeper

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Thanks for the article on Tryon, Kippax. Was just logging on to ask if anyone knew anything about him after his avalanche of runs for the CD u19s.

    Seems Edgar and Bradburn figured they already have plenty of bats along these lines; good hand-eye but outfoxed by sleights of hand.

    looks a very raw talent. I never saw Taylor bat as a kid but by all accounts he treated it like his rep hockey games. Tryon is how I imagine Taylor batted. Hope he gets polished up nicely into a good player.

    I wouldn't say Duffy has been dropped tbh, more that they need cover for the middle order rather than opening so Rodden is a better option.

In fact all provinces probably have 2 better options in that regard that I could easily list off.
    Central, Otago, Canterbury.

    The Popli that played for Papatoetoe as a teenager while he was studying at Auckland Uni obviously wasn't half the player he is now. He's scored a mountain of runs for Bay of Plenty in the Hawke Cup, a level of cricket higher than Auckland club stuff. Infact he has the most 100's ever for BOP now I think. Hickey would, he's scored a couple of big 200's for ND A now and Santner has just come off an "a" tournament where he was one of the highest run scorers while also taking 14 wickets @ bugger all.

    Disappointing that Bennett misses an opportunity to press his case for the Test squad, although he might already be in the back of the selectors' minds.

    It's pretty overcast in Dunedin with showers. Might be a stop start day.

    Well, I think you can argue that an opportunity to bowl at the same international players who'll be lining up in the test series, even if it is only in an ODI, is a pretty good chance to press his case.

    How come Boult isn't turning out for ND? Unless he's a serious contender for ODI selection (which as far as I'm aware he isn't) then he really should be playing. Also, yay Bevan Small is finally getting a game!

    Look, they're all decent players. But you wouldn't slobber all over these blokes if they played for different associations. There's been plenty of people who have scored big Hawke Cup runs for ND/CD and gone on to do bugger all. The gap between A cricket and FC cricket is as big as its ever been. You name those sides but I'm sure a man to man comparison of all three ND players named would struggle to dislodge anyone from CD/Otago/Canterbury. Who in the top order in that Otago/Cant side are Hickey/Popli going to dislodge? Is Santner a better spinner than Beard or Astle? I'm not so sure.
