Gray Nic Aus/NZ Huge news signing
« on: June 28, 2018, 05:32:05 AM »

I noticed this in my Facebook feed earlier today from GN Aus/NZ:

https://m.facebook.com/GrayNicolls.AUSNZ/photos/a.502787096403861.86631428.424274204255151/2470575566291661/?type=3&source=48

Any ideas of who?

I see Joe Burns is in court at the moment as Spartan hasnt paid up on his contract, so that was my first thought.
But I wouldnt call that a huge signing.

A comment suggested Smith, but GN have removed Warner from everything so I cant see the signing Smith and hugely marketing it...

Anyone know of any Aussies or Kiwis coming off contract?

I reckon marsh might be a pretty good guess for one of the signings.

Mitch was with Gray Nic before stupidly going to Puma.
Would they make a big deal about him going back?

Are we sure its a male cricketer?

Paine was about to take up a job with Kookaburra before being called back in to the Oz side. Doubt he would now go with the competition.

After his returns in the recent ODI tour I doubt the competition would take him... ;)

I thought this one too. Tim Paine started his career with GN I believe (cant find the photo Ive seen previously).
Seems unlikely though, considering TPs comments recently about courage, honesty, values, respect etc. Moving from the sponsor, who was about to give you a good job after cricket isnt in line with these values so would look hypocritical.

Im not sure if GN booted him, but Warner is using Spartan gear at the Canadian T20:

ive followed Tim Paine for quite sometime...being that i live in hobart and also played AFL against him in the early days prior to him taking up cricket fulltime...i cant ever recall him having anything other than kookaburra personally...id find it highly unlikely that he'd move to GN...

De Villiers has moved from kooka after having been associated with it all his life as well as breaking the fastest records while using their gear.. and AB is one of the nicest/honest blokes around.. So anything can happen in world of sponsorships..
