    Yeah, but it's a moot point. They aren't going to replace Watson's role in the side, are they? Keeping allrounders are basically a given requirement these days.

Pretty sharp with the ball, and his record in club cricket indicates he's a good batsman.
    Thornley is a one day all-rounder, I think it'd be fair to say.

    Lambert just is a bit too military medium to worry the best of FC players. One of those guys who is a really good 2nd XI player for NSW, but will never be able to hold down a spot in the side for good, IMO.

    He bowled at around 133-138 for NSW in certain spells in the Pura Cup final. There's slower specialist bowlers in FC cricket than him, I'd dare say.
