I agree Lew

Vilas and harmer were hardly house hold names and neither was viljoen at Derbyshire. All successful Kolpac signings for me

There's talent out there just got to be shrewd. I'd certainly be making marsh a priority for next seasons overseas tho

None of us know every single cricketer world wide so I don't think it's fair to claim nobody is out there

Vilas has hardly set the world alight, in fact his average in his last 6 Championship games (11 innings) is something like 11, he'd better be a much superior keeper to Hodd if we're casting him aside with a record like that!
Outside of JB this 1,000 runs a season keeper people are shouting for just doesn't exist in the real world.

Am I missing something with Shaun Marsh? I've only seen him in the flesh once - for the Aussies at Derby a couple of years ago, where he looked OK, but nothing special. He's played two f/c matches for Yorkshire, one on the featherbead at Surrey, where he scored 78 and 125 (Lees scored 46 and 102), and the other at Headingley against Middlesex, where he scored 22 (Lees got 27).
I'm not sure why one of these players is supposed to be hopeless and the other is some kind of prime target...

Villas is averaging 35 over the season which is 10 more than Lyth, Lees and Hodd.

Feels a bit sly to judge him on the last 6 games.

Posters complained in the last match that we should not have played 5 seamers.....

...think we should play 6 or 7 seamers, they consistently outscore the so called batsmen.

You think TKC would have done better than the 6 that are already out? He is not Sangakara you know.

Has anybody mentioned 1000 runs a season keeper?? I thought we suggested a wicket keeper who is capable of scoring a 100??

Vilas averages 33 largely thanks to one innings in which he scored 1/3 of his season's runs. In fact Hodd has more 50+ scores than Vilas this season. Vilas' record is hardly which screams of top 6 consistency.

Gareth Roderick another decent keeper who can clearly hold his own with the bat. He has recently been injured but has a very decent average. It's a bit absurd to infer there's not a plausible alternative to Hodd in the global cricketing world.
