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.
I know a place where a royal flush
Can never beat a pair
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.
Moises's batting is not up to scratch tbh his highest score in Grade this year was like 97.
The Future of International Cricket - Rohit Sharma, Suresh Raina, Ravi Bopara, Tim Southee, Ross Taylor, Shahriar Nafees, Raqibul Hasan, Salman Butt, JP Duminy

Would send Dan Marsh over, tbh.
Dream XI: M Hyder, J Linker, M Clock, S Wetsin, A Simms, A Golcrhist, B Hugg, S Worde, B Leap, J Giuseppe, G MacGrith
Does Thornely count as an allrounder in people's eyes here?

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