I’m fully on board with having the best players in the world in SSN. If we adopted the UK rule we wouldn’t be able to watch Mentor and Ward in the circle together, and to me – that’s a loss.

My problem is signing internationals who are no better/marginally better than local talent. I don’t think SSN is here to develop internationals, they should come in as proven A class players, and clearly better than local alternatives. That was my issue with Haythornthwaite at Swifts. She plugged a gap due to injuries a few years ago, but was clearly the 4th best WA in the team this year. For the same reason, I wouldn’t be signing McCollin, Cardwell, Cobden, Drakeford-Lewis, Shadine VDM etc. And if Potgeiter gets a spot over Wallam…. Disappointed!!
