    Hey Kiwi, I just noticed an article that Luke Ronchi is heading back to your side of the tasman to try and land a spot in the black caps team.

    was born over there and is going to play for Wellington in the domestic stuff. he won't be eligible until January next year as thats 4 years after he last played in a full international for Australia.

    Interesting move, he could go quite well, still only 30 and appears to have dropped down the pecking order here.

    Surely he's a better option for you guys than BJ Watling??

      Interesting, hadn't heard that one Fro

      Watling is coming off a test ton so will be in there for a while, I was playing the day he was keeping so not sure about his standard there, but he was a keeper up until the age of 18-19 and had some natural ability apparently. Tom Latham will be the one to watch in a few years though as the keeper/batsman

      Wellington don't have a set keeper that I can think of, and Jamie Siddons is coaching them so probably a good fit
