"We wouldn’t have invited them here if we weren’t serious about them," Blakey said. "Obviously that’s left up to [list manager] Kinnear Beatson and his crew at the end of the day, to see what falls out in the draft and what’s around with rookie spots and all of those sorts of things.

"When I was younger I was right into my cricket and started coming up to play for Queanbeyan as a wicketkeeper and that's how I met Dave, through the cricket club," Evans said in June.

People often talk about the loss you need to have but Klemke won't be falling back on that as an excuse. "You don’t want to get in a form slump, that’s the thing, you don’t want to go the other way.

Canterbury Bulldogs will rise. Without being unkind, I have no clue how the board led by Ray Dib got as close as they did to holding on to power in the elections last weekend. In the course of Dib's reign, the Dogs lost damn nigh everything, starting with their matches, and up to and including their two most revered and passionate players, Josh Reynolds 63
