The guy with 520 first class runs in his entire career? Who just made half of those against a third-string WA "attack"?

Look I'm sure he has potential, but give the kid a full year in shield cricket before we even start talking about getting him in.

Less than 900 career runs between them....
The talent is there though. We are going to be sh*t regardless of who we bring in. If there’s a time to risk some young players in the team, it’s now.

Wait to see if he goes the Travis Dean route first.

Kurtis Patterson deserves a look in first imo.

I subscribe to this theory.
With the current state of Australian cricket we might as well play some people who have the potential to be great rather than those who have already proven themselves to be mediocre.

A lot of difference between an elite junior in Pucovski and a bloke who debuted at 23 after coming through grade cricket.

Dean Jones must be his inspiration, all he needs is Border down the other end telling him how soft he is. :p

But in all honesty, I have no idea how thats a good decision to rest him, If he wants to play tests hes going to be able to need to back up after short rest periods

Sports scientists now days.

Sad news about the young fella. Hopefully he can get the support he needs and bounce back. He's a super kid to listen to, seems to really have his head screwed on, best of luck to him.

This is really sad news, hopefully love and support will see him pull through. I'd recommend Gideon Haigh's piece on Moises Henriques in today's Oz mag too.
