    There was an article earlier on this year about how those two had decided they wanted to play for England. If I was England I would give Robson an ODI appearance to in the next series to ward Australia off.

    Doubt anyone need worry, from the press it's pretty clear who Robson has hitched his wagon to. Would be quite close to getting a game on performance anyway you'd think?

    Yeah he has to be in consideration. Compton, Root and him you'd think are the options.

    From what I've read he'd play for whoever asked him first, but he's just not willing to sacrifice playing county cricket to play Shield cricket, but he'd be happy to play both.

    Well, CA could just throw some money and a guaranteed Test spot his way. I mean, that's the way to get the best out of blokes, right?

    EDIT: TheRoar. Oh man.

    I know what he is saying and he makes some valid points but the throw a central contract and assuring him his place in the side is silly. He isn't the messiah, a good young prospect with a strong technique. I think he'd play for Aus though, and to be honest I would say it is more likely especially if he can carry on playing CC.

    He needs to back up this year with another good one next IMO - Lions maybe the place for him this winter, certainly wouldn't like to see him on tour ahead of people who have played consistently well over more than just a handful of games.

    Great stuff. Never really understood why we effectively ban Australian citizens like Jaques, Robson etc from playing First Class cricket in Australia. Surely if you are a dual passport holder, you should be permitted to play in both countries.

    England should call him up for a T20 game.

    Also, why can Robson not play for NSW as an overseas player?

    Because the rule that they are thinking of removing states that an Australian born player cant play as an overseas player in the shield. Darren Pattinson could though.
    Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    What's the logic behind that rule? Aus not want to run the risk of dual passporters honing there skills in SS then playing for someone else?
