    Quite Frankly, you can replace Watson with just about anyone! Waste of valuable cricketing roster space!

    Shane Watson is not a big loss, pluss Hodge can bowl off-breaks. Hodge is a better bat and the depth of the aussie bowling shouldn't be affected Watson's departure/
    Proud to be a Colt!

    M Hopgood: Followed up his debut century with a half century. Most likely the most impressive begin to a List A career by a Colts batsman in their history. In fantastic form at the moment, and will look to transfer that form into the first class arena. 8/10

    Henriques did bowl pretty well in a FC game and took 5, and batted decently in a one dayer too. Obviously it's not anything that would get him considered for international cricket, but he's shown glimpses of ability. Give it a couple of years, anyway.

    Watson is in fact a pretty big loss, but it looks like he'll be back soon. Hopefully it won't be too much of a setback form wise, as he was playing quite well.

    Anyone who thinks that Watson is not a big loss really needs to have good look at what England did with Australia's 5th bowling option (Clarke+Symonds).


    Though England weren't able to take advantage of that platform, but against other good teams Aussies are not gonna get away the way they did against England.

    Interesting question, who would the next all-rounder be after Hopes? We dont seem to have many high quality ones coming through atm.

    It was quite obviously a joke Justin, and these little barbs will keep coming in your direction until you change your own posting style and attitude.

    Probably Butterworth or McDonald. I'd actually say there's more handy all-rounders in domestic cricket at the moment than there has been in a long time, when you consider Hopes and those two behind Watson, that's at least four who are valuable state players.

    Does Thornely count as an allrounder in people's eyes here?

    Not a tremendously good one, but he's been playing as one a bit more in recent times. Bowled a lot in his last stint for Hampshire, anyway. Grant Lambert seemed a handy all-rounder towards the end of the season for NSW, might have an impact next year. Pretty sharp with the ball, and his record in club cricket indicates he's a good batsman.

    I would like to think guys like Haddin, Ronchi [in 2 years time] can also be called [Keeping] all-rounders.

    He's a tad old though really, and NSW selectors seem reluctant to pick him for whatever reasons - especially early in the year. He seems to have to prove himself every year in grade cricket despite finishing the year reasonably well for NSW... only to find himself back in the side by the end of the season... odd.
